New office of ARP S.A. (IDA JSC) was officially opened in Wrocław

On 26 November 2015 a new office of ARP S.A. (IDA JSC) was officially opened in Wrocław. The office of the Wrocław-Kobierzyce Sub-Zone Team was relocated from the centre of Wrocław to the outskirts of the city to ensure even better sub-zone management.

The ceremony was opened by Przemysław Strzelec, Deputy Director of the Euro-park Wisłosan Tarnobrzeg Special Economic Zone. “9 September 2015 marks the tenth anniversary of operation of the Wrocław-Kobierzyce Sub-zone in the EURO-PARK Wisłosan Tarnobrzeg Special Economic Zone. Taking into consideration the hitherto dynamic development of the industrial park, which was set up in the Kobierzyce Commune as a result of signing investment contracts with the LG Group in 2005, with a view to cooperation with existing Investors and future investment projects, to improve management of the area and cooperation with companies running their business activities within the zone, the IDA resolved to relocate the office from the centre of Wrocław to be closer to the Sub-Zone,” he said.

Mr Marcin Zieliński, Vice-President of IDA JSC, emphasized that “After the ten years, the rural Commune of Kobierzyce may serve as an example to follow for local authorities not only in Poland, but also all over Europe. Credit for the success achieved by the Wrocław-Kobierzyce Sub-Zone goes out to various communities: entrepreneurs, MPs, state institutions and employees who are always open to cooperation.”

The meeting was attended by foreign investors who had located their investment projects within the Wrocław-Kobierzyce Sub-Zone (representatives of such companies as LG Display, LG Chem, LG Innotek, Kessel, Lapp Kabel, Samwha, Linde- Gaz and other), as well as representatives of local authorities and foreign chambers of commerce. All of them expressed their appreciation for the zone’s managers. “I am surprised with the way the Sub-Zone is growing, it is fantastic, the entire infrastructure, excellent roads, great connection with the airport, motorways. Over the last few years, our cooperation with the Industrial Development Agency, with the Kobierzyce Commune, has been going so well that we plan to continue the growth,” said Leszek Sobczyk, Vice-President of the Management Board of Kessel Sp. z o.o.

The plots of land offered by the Tarnobrzeg Special Economic Zone in Lower Silesia are unrivalled when it comes to road and power supply infrastructure. A network of local and transit roads, an international airport, a network of passenger and freight rail and connections with the European motorway network are among the incentives for investing in our sub-zone, and thus the investment land continues to attract numerous foreign entrepreneurs. Mr Maciej Ślęzak, Head of the TSEZ, said: “The fact that the Wrocław-Kobierzyce Sub-Zone is the area of the largest concentration of foreign capital commits us to create favourable conditions for the growth of our existing and future investors, so that they can take decisions, implement their plans, and create new jobs. We hope that with the new location of the office, our staff can become even more effective in welcoming investors, managing the Wrocław-Kobierzyce Sub-Zone and taking care of existing Investors.”

The Wrocław-Kobierzyce Sub-Zone within the Euro-Park Wisłosan Tarnobrzeg Special Economic Zone was set up in 2005 in Biskupice Podgórne, Kobierzyce Commune, to establish the first European technological cluster of the world’s leading LCD producer, LG.Philips, in the vicinity of Wrocław. The special economic zone set up in the Kobierzyce Commune attracted other foreign investors. Initially, the zone covered approximately 275 ha and it was the place of business for LG factories and their sub-suppliers. Currently its area is 410 ha, and, apart from the group of Korean companies, its investors include: UPM Raflatac, Linde Gaz and large international companies such as Compal, Lapp Kabel, or Amazon.

The new ARP office in Wrocław is located at ul. Wyścigowa 56e.
