Boryszew S.A., the largest Polish manufacturer of the automotive industry, has been once again awarded in the international competition. Chapter “FDI Poland Investor Awards” has announced the winners of the plebiscite for the largest investors and exporters – Boryszew received the award in the category “Top Polish Investor in DACH or Benelux”, the leading Polish investor in the German-speaking area or Benelux. The jury appreciated the company’s investment in Prenzlau – one of the largest Polish greenfield investments in Germany, with the value of 22 million euros.
The purpose of the plebiscite was to select Polish investment abroad and foreign companies developing in Poland. Among the candidates there are companies which announced or completed new investments or expanded their business from January 2016 to August 2017. One of the key investment activities in the Boryszew Group was at that time launching a facility in Prenzlau, Germany. In April 2017 the necessary works were completed and a serial production of plastic, galvanized automotive components was started. Recently Boryszew S.A. has been actively investing in its organic growth. In 2016 Maflow factory started activity in Guanajuato, Mexico, and by the end of 2017 it will start production in the new facility in Toruń.
– “I’m pleased that the investment in Prenzlau was appreciated by the international committee. Our new German factory has a vital role in the context of the implementation of the assumptions for the development of the Boryszew automotive segment, which is why this award is so important to us.
