The Pittsburgh Glass Work (PGW) corporation from the United States will invest almost zl.250 million in a new windshield plant in ¦roda ¦l±ska in southwestern Poland.

Marek Łyżwa, vice-president of the Polish Information and Investment Agency, says this will be the corporation’s first such facility in Europe. “It is a money-consuming project and that means long-term involvement from the investor,” Łyżwa said.

This year promises to abound in new projects in the Polish automotive industry which has been booming in the past several months. The projects include both new investment by companies operating in Poland and new greenfield projects.

For example, in mid-June the Guardian Automotive Poland company opened a new facility in Bolesławiec in southwestern Poland that produces plastic components. The facility, worth zl.100 million, has 130 employees and after enlargement it will provide jobs for a total of 220 people.

The American TRW Automotive Holdings corporation has announced plans to increase production of steering systems. The company is the largest employer among subcontractors in the automotive industry. It has five facilities in Poland which employ over 6,000 people. A new one, worth zl.150 million, will be built in the southern city of Bielsko-Biała and launch production in the first quarter of next year.

The Faurecja company, which produces dashboards and door panels for Audi, Volvo, Mercedes, Opel, Ford, Volkswagen and other automakers, has decided to enlarge its facilities as well. The corporation has a production plant in Gorzów Wielkopolski in western Poland and will open a new one next to it by the end of this year. Still this year, production will also begin at an enlarged Brembo facility in the city of D±browa Górnicza in the south that produces brake linings. The facility will become Brembo’s largest production plant in the world.
