Polish manufacturer Elplast+ sp. z o.o. is planning to expand the output capacity of its plant in Jastrzębie-Zdrój, in Poland's region of Silesia, reports local business daily Puls Biznesu. The company produces plastics pipe and other components with the use of polypropylene, PBT and polyethylene.
Under the plan, the firm is to invest some 2.3 million euros at the factory which is located in the Katowicka special economic zone (KSSE), in Poland's southern part. The company says it will maintain the production facility's current workforce of 162 employees, as well as create three new jobs in Jastrzębie-Zdrój.
The Polish company makes its output with the use of granulates supplied by LyondellBasell, Borealis, Sabic, Dow Chemicals and Total, according to data released by Elplast+.
Elplast+ is owned by two local businesswomen, Anna and Teresa Pawelak. The company says it has been active in the Polish plastics industry for more than 25 years.
The firm's factory in Jastrzębie-Zdrój is ISO 9001 and 14001 certified, and it is operated by a workforce of some 170, according to the latest figures released by Elplast+.
Jastrzębie-Zdrój is located about 370 kilometers from Poland's capital Warsaw.
Locating its project in a special economic zone will provide Elplast+ with preferential tax treatment until 2026, when the zones are to cease their operations.
