U.S. manufacturer 3M has announced plans to add new products at its plant in Wrocław, in south-western Poland. The company is aiming to launch production of a wide range of plastic components which will be mainly intended for the auto industry.

The project is to be carried out in the Wrocław subzone of the Wałbrzyska special economic zone (WSSE), the zone said in a statement. Under the plan, the firm will invest at least 189 million zloty ($62.1 million) to expand the facility’s product range, and take on at least 80 new workers in Wrocław.

The new products are to include plastic parts, adhesives, tapes and fibers.

3M, based in St. Paul, Minn., is planning to complete the investment by the end of December 2019. The project will be implemented by the group’s local subsidiary 3M Wrocław which launched operations in Poland in 2006, the statement said.

The U.S. manufacturer has already obtained a permission from the zone to carry out the planned investment.

The Wrocław-based plant has a total floorspace of 40,000 square meters, according to data released by 3M. The facility is ISO 9001 and 16949 certified.
