Intrall to build PLN 200m greenfield car plant in Szczecin?


2011-01-05



More details emerged about Russian car maker Intrall’s plan to locate a factory of trucks and delivery vans in Szczecin (Zachodniopomorskie voivodship).

According to Rzeczpospolita, Intrall aims to invest up to PLN 200m (approx. €50m) in Szczecin and to employ at least 500 workers at the factory, although unofficial sources say the number of jobs might well be closer to 1,000. Though the exact location has not been selected yet, it now seems more likely that Intrall will opt for a greenfield project, rather than using the former site of the Szczecin Shipyard, as earlier indicated.

An three-way agreement between Intrall, the Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency (PAIiIZ), and the government of the Zachodniopomorskie voivodship is to be signed in the second half of January.

PAIiIZ director Slawomir Majman said the project was of great significance, as it would be the first investment of this size in Poland by a Russian company and might lead to further FDI projects by Russian firms in the future.

It would also serve as something of a lifeline for the city of Szczecin, which is reeling from the loss of thousands of industrial jobs.
