Wroclaw, Poland – Polish PU foam maker Selena is planning to open a new production facility in Kazakhstan, where its activities are focused on making insulation systems. Construction will begin in 2022 and the plant should be completed in 2024, according to senior company representatives. The value of the investment was not disclosed.
Jacek Michalak, president of Selena’s management board, told local news agency ISBnews that the factory will be located in south Kazakhstan, and that the investment is being made because of the company’s rising sales across the region.
‘The factory that we opened in Nur-Sultan four years ago has almost reached its full production capacity. Its products are supplied to the Kazakh market, and also to southern Siberia,’ Michalak said.
He called Kazakhstan a key market for Selena, and said its brands have secured a strong foothold in the country since the company entered the Kazakh market in 1992.
‘After excellent sales in the past few years, we are planning to pursue further investments. To us, Kazakhstan is a strategic location for our further expansion in this region,’ he said. ‘Our revenues in this country continue to grow, and we are also expanding our workforce in Kazakhstan.’
Selena operates a number of production facilities worldwide, including factories in Poland, Spain, Romania, Brazil, Turkey, South Korea and China.
