Ronal to build PLN 240m alloy wheels plant in Walbrzych


Ronal, a leading European maker of light alloy wheels, on 25 October received the green-light for a project to build a second manufacturing plant in Walbrzych (Dolnoslaskie voivodship), in the Walbrzych Special Economic Zone. The value of the investment is PLN 240m (approx. €55m).

Janusz Dzieniewicz, Production Manager at Ronal Polska, said that construction work was due to get underway in mid-November and the new factory was expected to start operations in April 2013. It will produce over two million aluminium alloy wheels a year, creating 480 new jobs.

The Switzerland-based company already has two factories in Poland. One is in Walbrzych and the other in Jelcz-Laskowice, also in Dolnoslaskie.

The news comes three weeks after the government’s interdepartmental panel on state aid approved an investment grant for the project.

Ronal has manufacturing plants in Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Portugal, the Czech Republic, Poland, Italy, Mexico and the United States. It employs over 5,000 people worldwide.
