Winkelmann to expand Legnica complex in PLN 120m project


Winkelmann, a German maker of products and sub-assemblies for the sanitary, automotive and other industries, has received the green-light for a major expansion of its manufacturing complex in Legnica/Legnickie Pole, in the Legnica Special Economic Zone (LSSE).

The company pledged to invest at least PLN 120m (approx. €31m) to enlarge an existing factory of heaters in Legnica, and to build a new plant making gearbox components in Legnickie Pole, in response to a surge in demand from the automotive sector. The project will initially create 10 new jobs and safeguard a total of 990 jobs at the LSSE complex until 2016. Ultimately the new gearbox plant could employ even 100 people. Construction work is scheduled to begin in the spring and the facility is expected to come online in late 2011.

Winkelmann is one of the oldest investors in the LSSE. By the end of 2010 it had invested more than PLN 500m (€129m) in the zone, where it has three factories.
