€95 million is the value of the new investment by MAN Truck & Bus SE, supported by the Polish Investment Zone in Niepołomice. The memorandum of understanding was signed at the Kraków Technology Park (KPT), and MAN received the decision about support from Prime Minister Jarosław Gowin.
MAN has reached a turning point of its history, as it undertakes a complex transformation of the enterprise, determined by the future challenges. Poland is a very important country for us in this process. We run two modern production facilities here as well as a finance and accounting centre, and a sales company present in the Polish market for over 28 years. Our staff in Poland, whose number has already exceeded 5000, do fantastic job and provide services of the highest assay. The greater the joy as Niepołomice and the MAN Trucks plant will play a significant role in the process,
Michael Kobriger, Member of Truck & Bus SE Board responsible for production and logistics, remarked at the ceremony.
The Polish Investment Zone favours development of enterprises in regions
The extension of MAN plant in Niepołomice announced today turns it into a real colossus. For this investment means hundreds, and eventually thousands, of attractive jobs. It means a technological leap and a higher rank in the supply chain for the Niepołomice plant. Finally, it denotes an important step on the road of transformation of our industry towards modernity, competitive edge, and efficiency. This is the apple of my eye, and the purpose of one of the flagship programmes of my ministry. For Poland’s new Industrial Policy will ensure that we return to the path of the lasting and quick growth after the pandemic. This event shows that perseverance and long-term activities are as important in business as they are in life. Yet it is also of crucial to be team players,
Vice President of the Council of Minister Jarosław Gowin said, presenting the decision about support.
MAN’s first investment was a milestone in the development of the KPT subzone in Niepołomice, which, to this day, is Małopolska’s largest industrial zone. I am glad that we can again help MAN in increasing the scale and quality of their presence in Poland thanks to the Polish Investment Zone. The significant extension of the production capacity and a high rise in the employment will be accompanied by an investment into an even higher technological intensity of production. The Industry 4.0 Revolution is taking place before our very eyes,
Wojciech Przybylski, President of the Board of the Kraków Technology Park said.
I am very glad that the board of MAN Truck decided to expand the plant in Niepołomice. The dynamic development of the Niepołomice Investment Zone proves it a perfect place to bring your business to, for such reasons as dedicated staff, professional approach of public administration, and good conditions for everyday functioning and life,
the mayor of Niepołomice, Roman Ptak, remarked.
As Polish Investment and Trade Agency (PAIH), we have supported the German investor in obtaining public aid. I believe that this multi-million project will reinforce the position of Poland as the leader of the automotive sector. Poland is a great location for new investments. A proof of that is its economy, doing well among the global slowdown, the powerfully developed logistics sector, educated staff, and proximity of the key markets including Germany and France. The company’s new investment is a win-win strategy: the investor wins, and so does Polish economy, especially the Małopolska Region. Investments in the automotive sector are one of the largest groups of projects currently managed by our Agency: there are no fewer than 21 of them. This sector has long been one of the economic pillars for Poland,
Krzysztof Drynda, President of the Polish Investment and Trade Agency remarked.
