Avio Invests Millions in Bielsko-Biała

Avio Group, a leading European manufacturer of aircraft engines, is spending nearly zl.100 million on a new production line at its Bielsko-Biała plant in Poland's southern province of Silesia.

Avio Group is based in the Italian city of Turin, earns in excess of 1.5 billion euros annually and employs more than 6,000 people. Avio is a major aerospace player that specializes in designing and manufacturing components for the world's most modern aircraft engines. The company is a member of an international consortium managed by General Electric to build the world's most advanced civil aircraft engine, the GEnx-2B. The technology used to manufacture the GEnx-2 outclasses everything else available and reduces noise and exhaust gas emissions in line with the goals of the Advisory Council for Aeronautics Research in Europe (ACARE).

Avio is entrusting the design of all stages of the stator vanes for low pressure turbines to Polish engineers. This bucks the trend of foreign companies merely using their Polish subsidiaries for production. This time round, Polish technical know-how is being used to design mass-produced components that will be exported all over the world as part of an international project.

The new zl.100 million, state-of-the-art production line at Bielsko-Biała is now in the implementation phase. Avio Polska is applying for the financial assistance for the project from the Innovative Economy Operational Program, under the EU Structural Fund.

Avio's Polish subsidiary, Avio Polska, was established in the Katowice Special Economic Zone (KSSE) in 2001. The company now employs almost 400, of whom a fifth are engineers working at the Research and Development Center. Avio Polska has won many awards including the Most Innovative Company in Silesia. The project to design all stages of the stator vanes for the low pressure turbines has been entered into the "Polish Product of the Future" competition organized by the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development.
