Danish sweets maker locates packaging operations in Wielkopolskie


Toms, a Danish manufacturer of chocolate, candies and other confectionery items, will in July open a packaging centre in Leszno (Wielkopolskie voivodship). The facility will employ around 220 workers during the peak season (May-November) and about 100 during off-peak months. It will be responsible for the manual packaging of Toms products destined for stores and warehouses in Denmark, ultimately handling the group’s entire product portfolio. According to Leszno mayor Tomasz Malolepszy, there is also a possibility that Toms will locate some production operations in the town as well.

The centre will be located at a 10,000 m2 manufacturing and warehousing hall vacated in 2011 by Sumitomo Electric Wiring Systems, a Japanese maker of automotive wiring components, which used to produce electrical wiring harness systems there but which completed its exit from Poland last year.

Toms Group employs approximately 1,000 people, including 850 in Denmark and 150 in Sweden. It has two factories, both in Denmark.
