NameEdit

The municipality was called Novi Travnik until 1980, when it was styled Pucarevo after Đuro Pucar. In 1992 the original name was restored.[citation needed]

HistoryEdit

Novi Travnik was founded in 1949 to provide residence for the employees of the newly founded MMK Bratstvo factory, and so it is one of the youngest settlements in the region. As of January 2015, the municipality contains nine National Monuments of Bosnia and Herzegovina,[1] among which are seven stećak necropolises, one mosque and the Necropolis for the victims of Fascism.

EconomyEdit

Novi Travnik was founded in 1949 to accommodate the workers of the MMK "Bratstvo" factory. MMK Bratstvo's business grew rapidly and so did the town, resulting in one of the most prosperous towns in the entire Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and the Eastern Bloc by the late 1980s. MMK "Bratstvo used to employ more than 7,000 people and was the cornerstone of Novi Travnik. The Yugoslav Wars and their consequences altered the way and quality of living in Novi Travnik. Economy of Novi Travnik was greatly dependent on the MMK "Bratstvo" factory which was almost completely destroyed during the war, specially after a Serb air attack on 28 February 1994 (see Banja Luka incident). Today, most of MMK "Bratstvo" was privatized into smaller companies, with the Slovenian Cimos (successor of Tomos) and ADK taking the primary parts of MMK Bratstvo's primary business (forging, car parts industry). A rising trend in Bosnia and Herzegovina was seen in the shoe industry, and Novi Travnik was not excluded from it. There are a dozen companies employing over 1000 people operating in Novi Travnik. In 2015-2016, the municipality administration has designated a new industrial zone outside of the town center to attract foreign investments. HARI Ltd. is a middle-sized retail company headquartered in Novi Travnik. Alongside HARI Ltd, there a few larger retail stores including Agrokor's Konzum and Best and other locally-operating stores.
