The BTS facility for the American manufacturer, whose product range includes e.g. quads, will be erected in Opole, within the Wałbrzych Special Economic Zone Invest-Park, and will comprise 33,000 sqm of space.
Polaris Industries Inc. – an American manufacturer of snowmobiles, quads, motorcycles and electric NEVs, is entering Poland. Established in 1954, the company decided to locate its first European plant for off-road vehicles in Opole, within the Wałbrzych Economic Zone Invest-Park. The 33,000-square-metre investment will be executed by Panattoni Europe, a developer with an extensive portfolio of warehouse and manufacturing development projects, including some within economic zones. The production hall will take up an impressive 25,600 sqm, the warehouse 3,400 sqm, whereas offices and staff facilities 3,981 sqm. Construction works are set to commence at the beginning of August and to be completed in mid-February 2014.
” The Polaris Industries factory is an example of an investment that is of interest and importance not only for Panattoni Europe and the commercial property market. It is also of vital significance for Poland, especially the Opole region. The manufacturer’s first European factory for off-road vehicles will be making 25 thousand quads and small all-terrain vehicles per year, to be delivered to Europe, Middle East and Russia. As many as 350 jobs will be created at the plant initially, and the number may go up in the future, which in the present economic situation is an important aspect of our activity as a developer. Polaris Industries’ decision also shows that Poland is perceived as a business partner with a stable political and economic situation and a vast qualified labour pool, which is not overlooked by potential foreign investors” said Robert Dobrzycki, Managing Partner for Central and Eastern Europe, Panattoni Europe.
Polaris Industries Inc.’ new factory will be located within the Wałbrzych Economic Zone Invest-Park, within the bounds of Półwieś, cadastral district of Opole, at ul. Wspólna.
