American corporation Weyerhaeuser, one of the largest timber processing companies in the world, will build a new cellulose processing plant in the northern Baltic port of Gdańsk. This will be the first Weyerhaeuser facility to produce cellulose outside North America. Gdańsk is the biggest port on the Baltic Sea with convenient rail and road connections to the rest of Europe. Gdańsk City Hall officials announced at the end of October that Weyerhaeuser had won a tender to buy 100,000 square meters of land assigned for the project. Procedures on the sales contract will be completed by the end of this year and construction of the 17,000-sq-m facility is expected to begin in the spring of 2010, with completion scheduled for 2012. The new facility will provide jobs for at least 45 people. It will primarily process cellulose used in hygiene products.

"We expect the global demand for cellulose-based products to grow in the long run," said Dan Fulton, the president and CEO of Weyerhaeuser. "Our facility will enable the cellulose fiber segment to develop to match the needs of our key customer." The Weyerhaeuser plant in Gdańsk will primarily supply its products to Procter&Gamble.

"This was one of the most important foreign projects in Poland in 2009 and we supported it since the beginning," said Sławomir Majman, the president of the Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency (PAIiIZ). "In the future, we are looking forward to maintaining productive cooperation with the corporation."
