German plastic components manufacturer Wirthwein AG plans to invest about 11 million zloty ($3.4 million) to expand its plant in Lodz, Poland. The company aims to take on at least 20 new employees at the factory by the end of March 2015, reported local news agency PAP.

The planned investment will also enable the company to add new machines to its Polish plant. The company has already obtained permission to carry out the project.

The production facility is located in a special economic zone. Wirthwein's Polish plant supplies home appliance, electronics and automotive manufacturers.

The plant has injection presses ranging from 80-1,000 tons of clamping force, and more than 180 employees.

Wirthwein operates production facilities in 17 countries located on three continents.
