Business in Poland


Made in Olimp – health headquarters

Olimp Laboratories Sp. z o.o. is the place where fitness, health and science all intersect. Founded in 1990 and originally focused on dietetic foods, the pharmaceutical company quickly grew to become the international success it is today after developing some key innovative products. Headquartered in southeastern Poland, Olimp Labs has built a reputation for being a center of fitness and scientific research, breakthroughs and education serving the Polish and international communities alike.


The healthy alternative to milk

Milk and dairy products are essential in a healthy and balanced diet. However, more and more people are suffering from lactose intolerance and do not tolerate cow’s milk. For those people, goat’s milk products provide a healthy alternative. Agro-Danmis Gramowscy Sp. J. with headquarters in Bukowiec, Poland, offers a broad range of dairy products made of goat’s milk.


Perfect combination

Quality, made-to-measure products, outstanding customer orientation and fast, reliable delivery – what sounds like the perfect combination of critical success factors is daily routine at Zelmotor Sp. z o.o. Based at the heart of Europe, the Polish company supplies electrical motors to major home appliance firms at home and abroad.


International transport at its best

The international transport sector in Europe is facing serious challenges. Finding excellent drivers is an issue for any company focussing on road transport. On top of that, the European Commission is undertaking actions to make mobility safer and cleaner, leading to new regulations and a CO2 emissions standard for heavy-duty vehicles that will affect every transport company from a cost perspective. KOIMEX S.A. is based in Świebodzin in Poland and specializes in international road transports along the axis France – Germany – Poland. The company is well equipped to meet the new European regulations.


Competence in steel

The new train station in Lodz won the steel construction award in 2017 thanks to its exceptional design and steel construction. It was designed and built by Zekon Sp. z. o.o., the Polish subsidiary of the international Zeman Group from Austria. Since the 1990s, Zekon has built up a reputation as one of the most innovative manufacturers of steel constructions. The company is the only Polish manufacturer and supplier of SIN beams, which are renowned for their low weight and wide spans. In the coming years, Zekon will strengthen its focus on SIN beams still further.


A follower in the best sense

Following the customer abroad is a well-tested strategy, especially in the manufacturing sector. A good example is provided by the white goods industry, which moved its production more and more to the east in the last decade. The Italian Europlastica Group, a major supplier of injection moulded parts to this industry, therefore decided to set up its own plant in Poland ten years ago: EPP Sp. z o. o. Since then, the company has developed into a leading Polish plastics processor with growing international ambitions.


Bigger ships - bigger equipment

Container vessels are getting bigger and bigger. The largest can load more than 19,000 Twenty-foot Equivalent Units (TEU). The deck equipment, therefore, has to keep pace with this development. Towimor SA is following the trend towards bigger ships very closely. The Polish company is constantly adapting its products – deck cranes, cable lifters, mooring winches and many other high-tech devices – to growing demands and has thus developed into one of the leading global players in maritime and offshore solutions.


Masters of multi-talents

Surfactants are multifunctional substances which led themselves to a wide variety of applications. The surface-active substances can be found in a range of different products from toothpaste to concrete or food. The Polish company PCC Exol SA ranks among the biggest manufacturers of surfactants in Central and Eastern Europe. The specialists of PCC Exol SA are well reputed, too, as a driving force in developing new formulations and opening up new applications.


A successful transformation

The Polish company SATORIA Group is the result of a privatization process – of employee or stock ownership privatization, to be exact. While it used to be a state-owned company in 1980s and 1990s, the employees had the opportunity to buy the company from the state in 1996. In the past 18 years, SATORIA was able to successfully transform its business from a local Warsaw operation to Poland-wide operations. Today, the company is a national player in the hotel business.


Care with a difference

The Polish healthcare system is characterized by a growing private healthcare market, due to government reforms and a decreasing share of public expenditure in total spending on health care in Poland. This is creating choice for patients and opportunities for private healthcare providers. A pioneer and leader in this fast evolving market is Medicover Sp. z o.o. The privately owned company is a care organization that really wants to make a difference for its customers.
