US maker of engine parts to enlarge Wielkopolskie plant


Meyer Tool, a US supplier to the gas turbine engine industry, plans to significantly increase production capacity at its manufacturing facility in Kalisz (Wielkopolskie voivodship), Puls Biznesu has learnt. The company wants to build a factory of components for industrial and aerospace gas turbine engines there, in a project valued at PLN 20m (approx. €4.9m) that would create at least 30 jobs, according to an official recommendation from the Wielkopolskie regional government.

This would lift the plant’s staff levels by 30% from 100 at the moment. But to proceed with the investment, the US company wants the Kalisz site to be included in the Lodz Special Economic Zone, making it eligible for various incentives. A relevant application has been filed with the Ministry of Economy in May and is awaiting approval, along with a logjam of 10 or so similar applications from other zones. There are indications that the approval process will regain normal speed soon.

Cincinnati, Ohio-based Meyer Tool employs over 1,100 people at 10 manufacturing facilities worldwide.
