Since 15 years, IGP Pulvertechnik AG has been successfully represented by its own sales organization in Poland. IGP now strengthens its activities in Eastern Europe and will invest over CHF 15 million in a local production site in Poland.
"This investment is an important step for the future of our company. We create conditions for further growth and strengthen our position as an international partner for innovative powder coating solutions, "says Marc Züllig, CEO of IGP Pulvertechnik AG.
A great demand exists in the market for wood-coating, especially in Eastern Europe and a very good growth potential is seen in this new strategic market segment. Accordingly, the focus in production is primarily on powder coatings for wood coating.
IGP Pulvertechnik AG will build the manufacturing base with the support of the local IGPManagement from scratch. "This way we ensure that the new workforce meets the high IGPquality, service standards and live our corporate culture. Also production processes will be implemented," says Leo D'Anna, Manager Operations of IGP Pulvertechnik AG, "quality, safety and reliability, combined with fastest delivery times, this will be also the future credo of our international production IGP Operations PL. "
The start-up of the new plant is scheduled for the first half year of 2017. Fully equipped, the new plant will employ around 100 people in Poland. IGP Pulvertechnik AG employs at its headquarters and production site in Wil around 300 employees.
