Italian auto parts maker gets green light for PLN 24m potential investment in Slaskie


Flexider, an Italian maker of expansion joints and flexible decouplers for the industrial, aerospace and automotive sectors, has received permission for a new manufacturing investment in the Katowice Special Economic Zone (KSSE). The Turin-based group is considering plans to invest PLN 24m (approx. €5.8m) in new capacity at its facility in Bierun near Tychy (Slaskie voivodship), in a project that would create 20 jobs. It has yet to make a final decision on where to locate the new production line, however.

To improve its chances of attracting investments in the current difficult environment, the KSSE has started issuing permits for projects still awaiting the formal go-ahead from corporate HQ. A few days earlier it approved a PLN 300m-plus (€72.1m) potential project from GM to make the Opel Astra 5 car in Poland from 2015.

Founded in 1921, Flexider has production facilities in Italy, Poland and South Africa. Its customers include Audi, Faurecia, Ferrari, Fiat, Seat, or Volkswagen.
