The additional plant will be built in Radziechowy-Wieprz, in the “Katowice Special Economic Zone”, about 30 km from the existing production plant in Bielsko-Biala. The total investment amounts to approximately PLN 80.5 million, of which about PLN 9.5 million is for around 78,000 m2 of land and PLN 71 million for the building.The investment is within the existing credit agreement.
