Business in Poland


If you water it, it will grow

If you are in Poland and watering the garden with a hose or sprinkler, then it is highly likely that the equipment you are using was made by Cellfast. The Polish plastics processing company is a leading manufacturer of hoses, garden accessories, garden tools, gutter systems and soffits in this part of Europe. It enjoys the top position in its domestic market and has strong exports to the rest of Europe and the world. Its success can be attributed to significant investment in its manufacturing capacity and modern technology as well as its human capital.


Growing with success

Often, the success of a company lies in its specialization. Focusing the resources and knowledge in certain areas often involves unique experience and results in a higher level of performance and quality. That is what happened with Stabar Sp. z o.o. with headquarters in Żyrardów, Poland. The company was founded as a small supplier of industrial components and has developed into a specialist for large steel components for waste incineration plants, power plants and other sectors. From design works and production to the assembly of complete equipment at construction sites, Stabar covers the entire value chain.

On the doorstep of security

Security literally begins on the doorstep by selecting the right door and lock system. Polish company GERDA Sp. z o.o. has been building a reputation as an expert in this segment since its foundation in 1987. European Business talked to President of Board Zbigniew Mendel about future growth in Europe and how the company creates a perfect blend of design and security.


Tapping the full potential of the booming machine tool market

From a customer’s perspective, the perfect machine tool supplier offers a well-balanced blend of strong technical competence, ample expertise and a portfolio of products and services tailored to all their specific needs. The Poland-based machine tool manufacturer Andrychowska Fabryka Maszyn DEFUM S.A. (abbreviated to a more English-speaker friendly ‘AFM DEFUM’) successfully exceeds customer expectations in all those categories. With 70 years of experience in the industry, AFM DEFUM boasts extensive know-how and a broad spectrum of inhouse developed products and services made to meet each and every need of its demanding customers.


The design and build experts

Different industries naturally go through changes, and the construction industry is no exception. Interest is growing in the design and build part of the sector. Prime Construction Sp. Z o.o. Sp.K, headquartered in Poland, is an expert in creating and implementing this concept for commercial and private clients alike. The firm is knowledgeable about building in different countries and industries, and is ready to handle your next project.


People to people

Building for the future is a task that holds great responsibility and one that should not be taken lightly. Developing business areas in major cities in Central and Eastern Europe that are rapidly climbing the wealth ladder asks for a clear vision of what the future may hold. Skanska’s CEE commercial development business, headquartered in Warsaw, is part of one of the world’s leading companies in project development and construction. The company’s activities are based on caring for the lives of people and the environment, sound ethics, cooperation and commitment to customers.


Anticipating the future of recycling

A willingness to work extremely hard and a well-developed instinct for future trends: These are two of the most important qualities of a successful entrepreneur and are characteristics that Piotr Pantoł, Owner and Commercial Director of Wende Recyclingtech s.c. Ewa I Piotr Pantoł, possesses in bucketloads. The Polish company, which he founded with his wife Ewa in 1998, is a renowned supplier and installer of recycling machinery and was established at a time when environmental concerns were in their infancy in Eastern Europe.


Intelligent building systems on a secure footing

For anyone looking to enter the technology market, the costs involved in initially setting up a company can be huge. Added to that, the capital required to finance large projects can make it difficult for the company to grow. The backing of an established and financially secure organization can make the difference between success and failure. IB Systems Sp. z o.o., a Polish developer of integrated systems for intelligent buildings, is reaping the benefits of its connection with renowned Polish group Introl AG.


Making visions a reality

Lighting is a crucial part of interior design because it has a huge influence on the atmosphere in the building and its identity. In addition, it can also offer technical features that are needed in industrial applications. ES-SYSTEM S.A. with headquarters in Krakow is the leading supplier of lighting solutions in Poland. Working closely together with architects, lighting designers and investors, the company is able to provide lighting for the most demanding projects. Based on its success in the Polish market, ES-SYSTEM is now ready to conquer the international market.


Fuelling the future

Despite the recession in the oil and gas industry, there are young and ambitious companies that have been growing since they were founded. Building a solid position among the fuel giants, they are a welcome inspiration to others. Solumus was founded in 2011 and is headquartered in Płock, Poland, with an additional office in Warsaw. The privately owned company trades diesel, biodiesel and gas, and has a subsidiary, Solumus Gas, that focusses on wholesale and retail sales of LPG. The founders are now looking for a strategic business partner, an investor with a matching vision for the company and the market in the future.
