Warsaw -- South Korean manufacturer SKC Europe PU plans to expand production at its facility in Dzierzoniow, Poland.
Under the plan, SKC will invest PLN 2.5m (EUR 600,000) in the plant – which is located in the southwest of the country and within the Walbrzyska Special Economic Zone (WSEZ). The expansion is due for completion no later than 2016 according to a statement from the WSEZ.
The factory’s product portfolio includes PU and polyols for automotive, heating, refrigeration and packaging applications. Due to the plant’s location with the WSEZ, the government has granted SKC special tax exemptions until 2026.
As reported in Urethanes Technology International magazine, the plant was launched in 2010 with an output of 20,000mT/year.
