Capita and Bahlsen to invest in Krakow zone


Two foreign investors are about to receive the green light for significant investment projects in the Krakow Technology Park (KPT), CEO Wieslawa Kornas told Puls Biznesu.

One is Capita, a business process outsourcing (BPO) firm in the United Kingdom. The company plans to enter Poland with the opening of a large shared service centre in Krakow. The facility will work for pension funds and other clients in Europe, and will serve as a springboard for Capita’s expansion in continental Europe, Darren Owens, head of the UK company’s Polish business, said. Recruitment for the Krakow centre is scheduled to begin in October, and by the end of the year the facility is to employ 100 workers. By 2013 staff numbers are expected to rise to as much as 450, with the possibility of further expansion at a later date.

The other investor is Bahlsen, the German maker of cookies, biscuits and other baked goods. The company aims to invest PLN 20m (€5.1m) in upgrading and expanding its factory in Skawina (Malopolskie). It will add three new production lines and modernise existing ones.
