Canadian auto parts supplier ABC Group Inc. has unveiled plans to set up a new production facility in Bydgoszcz, in northwestern Poland, reports local news agency PAP.
Construction of the 13,000-square-meter plant will start this spring, and it will eventually employ 150.
Toronto-based ABC has been refocusing its business since the recent sale of its fuel systems unit to State Development Investment Corp. of Beijing, a major investor in Yapp Automotive Parts Co. Ltd.
ABC Group makes injection and blow molded parts and components for automotive interiors, exteriors and under-the-hood applications.
ABC's investment in Poland will be carried out by the group's local subsidiary, ABC Automotive Poland, which was set up in late 2014.
ABC Group specializes in vertically integrated plastics processing. The company owns 27 production facilities worldwide, including plants located in Canada, the United States, Germany, Spain, Brazil, Japan, China and Mexico. In addition to the factory in Poland, future locations are to include plants in India and South Korea, according to the company.
The company also recently announced plans to expand in Querétaro, Mexico, and Gallatin, Tenn.
