Rockwool expands Lubuskie plant to cope with higher demand


Rockwool, the global maker of mineral and stone wool, on 1 October inaugurated the construction of a new production line at its factory in Cigacice near Zielona Gora (Lubuskie voivodship), in a project worth PLN 100m (approx. €24.3m) and expected to create 100 new jobs. The unit is scheduled to start operations in June 2013.

Andrzej Kielar, CEO or Rockwool Polska, said his company was defying the cautious mood in the manufacturing sector, investing in new technologies and taking on new workers in response to growing demand for its roof panels, not just in the EU but also in markets such as Russia, the Middle East or Asia. The project is expected to enhance the standing of Cigacice within the Rockwool group as a production base of high quality products exported all over the world.

The plant currently employs 730 people. Rockwool also has a smaller facility in Malkinia (Mazowieckie voivodship). They make 400,000 tons of stone wool a year and employ approximately 1,000 people.
