We are witnessing the industrial revolution 4.0, in which Poland plays a leading role. This makes it all the more pleasing that there will be produced not only traditional engines in Jawor, but also electric batteries said the Prime Minister after the meeting with Markus Schäfer, a member of the Management Board of Mercedes-Benz Cars, in the Chancellery of the Prime Minister.

Mateusz Morawiecki stressed that the investment in the battery factory shows that on the one hand entrepreneurs are keen to expand their activity in the country and are happy with the business environment, and on the other hand Poland’s position as a leader in the electromobility industry is becoming stronger.

The plant in Jawor plans to produce about 100,000 batteries a year and to extend an existing production site to about. 20,000 square metres. The investor assumes creating about 200 jobs. It is estimated that the value of the investment will be about EUR 100 million. Production is expected to start in mid 2020.

The decision to start producing electric batteries shows that the companies which have commenced investment activities believe in the talents of their staff workers, suppliers, contractors, and in the good cooperation also with government institutions added the Prime Minister. He also emphasised that the investment in electromobility is part of an area that promotes clean air.
