Indesit to locate factory of cooker hoods in Lodz?


Indesit, the Italian white goods manufacturer, is considering plans to build a fifth factory in Poland, in a project that would create more than 250 new jobs, Rzeczpospolita has learnt. Much depends on whether the government agrees to enlarge the Lodz Special Economic Zone (LSSE) to incorporate the proposed site (in Lodz). If approved, it would be the first factory of cooker hoods built in Poland by a foreign household appliances company.

At present Indesit has four factories in the country. Two are in Lodz, making cookers and fridges; and two in Radomsko (Lodzkie voivodship), making washing machines and dish washers.

Indesit controls nearly 10% of the Polish market for white goods, in both value and volume terms. However, the Polish market for cooker hoods is served exclusively by domestic companies.
