Slupsk zone to expand to 820 hectares


2012-01-05



The Ministry of the Economy is about to approve a major expansion of the Slupsk Special Economic Zone (SSSE) to help attract investments to economically depressed parts of northern Poland.

The zone will more than double in size to 824 hectares thanks to the addition of new sites in Zachodniopomorskie (e.g. Koszalin, Walcz) and Pomorskie (e.g. Ustka, Slupsk). According to Miroslaw Kaminski, the zone’s president, quoted by Puls Biznesu, more than 10 investors have already expressed an interest in locating production or logistics facilities there. They represent a number manufacturing sectors such as metals, food processing, wood processing, construction products, as well as logistics services. These projects alone are expected to bring 1,100 new jobs. (By way of comparison, in 2011 the SSSE issued eight new permits for projects that are expected to create 102 jobs).

In a longer-term perspective, the Ministry of Economy estimates that the expansion will attract new investment projects worth a total of PLN 2.7bn (approx. €603m), resulting in the creation of 7,700 jobs.
