Investing Dough in Bread

Lantmannen Unibake, an international producer of fresh bread, baked goods and frozen dough, will build a 75-million-euro production facility in Poland.

Unibake, which owns the Schulstad, Skoga and Schulstad Bakery brands, has two other facilities in Poland. The new one will be located in the Kostrzyn-Słubice Special Economic Zone in Nowa Sól, western Poland and, at 29,000 square meters, it will be the largest of the three. Housing three state-of-the-art production lines, the new facility will have an annual output of 200 metric tons, mostly frozen dough for different kinds of bread and rolls for baking in stores.

Around 70 percent of products from the new facility will be exported to markets in Central and Eastern Europe and Scandinavia.


Pilkington Car Glass Plant Finished
Japan’s NSG Group in October opened an extension to its Pilkington car glass factory in southeastern Poland—a major project that the company says will boost the local economy.

The new section marks the completion of the Chmielów plant, near the southeastern city of Tarnobrzeg. This is a key project for the NSG Group, a manufacturer of glass for the construction and automotive industries and the owner of Pilkington car glass factories in Poland.

The factory took a total of four years to build and is one of the largest foreign investment projects in this country in recent years. This is the second Pilkington Automotive Poland factory in Poland after one in the southeastern town of Sandomierz. The plant produces car windows and windshields for automakers such as Jaguar, Land Rover, Ford, Volkswagen, Fiat and Honda, as well as windows for MAN, DAF, Mercedes and Volvo trucks.

Ryszard Jania, the CEO of Pilkington Automotive Poland, said the completion of the factory “is one of the most important events for the Polish automotive sector and a key factor driving the further economic development of the southeastern part of Poland.”

Modern technology used at the new facility will enable Pilkington Automotive Poland to double its production capacity. The two plants will roll out a total of 12 million laminated windshields and side and rear windows a year, of which 80 percent will be exported.

The Pilkington Automotive Poland factory in Chmielów has so far created 1,100 jobs and the company says another 100 jobs are planned in the near future. The plant is located in the Euro-Park Wisłosan Tarnobrzeg Special Economic Zone.
