Nineteen new investment projects, as much as 79% of decisions for the small and medium-sized enterprise sector, over PLN 334 million in financial outlays – this is a summary of the four months of 2023 in the Pomeranian Special Economic Zone.
Within four months, the Pomeranian Special Economic Zone issued 19 decisions on support within the Polish Investment Zone, thus maintaining its leading position in the country. Compared to last year, the number of decisions on support increased by over 100%. The proportions of support for the small and medium-sized enterprises sector have also changed favorably. From the beginning of 2023, decisions for SMEs accounted for as much as 79%, while in 2022 it was 50%.
The group of investors of the Pomeranian Special Economic Zone has been joined by, among others, PORTA KMI POLAND S.A., the largest and most dynamically developing door manufacturer in the country. The company in the Pomeranian Voivodeship will invest over PLN 100 million in the acquisition of assets belonging to the closed plant and its expansion in order to increase production capacity. The project will create 36 new jobs.
A similar investment is also planned in the Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship, where PRIMA sp. z o. o. from Inowrocław, which has been producing PVC windows and doors for over 30 years, will increase its production capacity by purchasing an additional hall, modern machines and photovoltaic panels.
– The Polish Investment Zone allows for sustainable development of the country, which is why I am glad that as much as 79% of the decisions issued went to the SME sector and allowed smaller companies to spread their wings. The dominant among the issued decisions is the metal industry, which is most often represented by small companies with high potential, producing technologically advanced components. Thanks to investments in technologies and machinery parks, they become competitive not only in the country, but also in the world. Interest in supporting PSI is growing, we are currently processing seven more applications – says Przemysław Sztandera, President of the Pomeranian Special Economic Zone.
The New Year in the Pomeranian Special Economic Zone started intensively not only because of the number of decisions on support issued. From the beginning of the year, the zone opened two branches of the Industrial Robots Programming Center, where young people can develop their competences and gain qualifications in the field of programming industrial robots, 3D printing, and in the future also welding.
