Myszkow, Poland -- Polish PU foam maker Pureko has obtained a permission to expand capacity of its production facility in the Katowicka special economic zone (KSSE), in Poland’s south-west.
Under the plan, the company is to invest about PLN 13m (€ 2.94m) in Myszkow, and create 5 new jobs at the factory, the KSSE said in a statement.
Set up in 2009, Pureko says it supplies its output to various companies active in the construction and furniture industry. The firm’s product range includes T shaped PU foam with a density ranging between 17 and 50 kg/m3, according to data released by Pureko.
Locating the investment in the KSSE will enable the company to gain preferential tax treatment. Poland’s special economic zones are to remain operational until at least 2026.
Myszkow is located about 246 km (153m) from the country’s capital Warsaw.
Pureko has been expanding its manufacturing capacities using European Union programmes, such as the Regional Development Fund and the National Cohesion Strategy programme.
