Colour Concentrates Clariant grows in Poland
Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, was joined by distinguished guests for the groundbreaking of its new plant in Konstantynów Łódzki, Poland. The ceremony held on site was attended by the Swiss ambassador, and representatives of local authorities and the Łódź Special Economic Zone as honorary guests.
Konstantynów Łódzki/Poland – The new, modern plant will commence production of colour concentrates for producers of plastic materials one year from now. The investment, worth CHF 11.3 million, will allow Clariant to increase production capacity and strengthen its position on Polish and European markets.
Under the guidance of the Łódź Special Economic Zone, Clariant, will construct a new production site, laboratory, warehouse, and offices at the location. Covering an area of approximately 6,800 square meters, the facility will enable Clariant to double the production capacity for masterbatches in Poland and also to create new job opportunities for qualified employees.
The symbolic groundbreaking in Konstantynów is the culmination of the company’s 22 year-long presence in Poland.
The decision to place the new production facility in the Łódź region is an important step in the development of Clariant’s strategy in Europe. It also acknowledges the region’s role in the company’s long-term investment policy. This comes largely as a result of excellent cooperation with the representatives of Łódź Special Economic Zone as well as the government, which have both supported the investment at all its stages – from consultancy and planning to building, Clariant says.
