The Prime Minister participated in the ceremony of laying the foundation act for the construction of a new production line of platform gratings in Mostostal Siedlce.
The Prime Minister recalled that Law and Justice had won the parliamentary elections exactly two years ago.
It happened because Poles decided to count on the programme and the persons of Law and Justice. We won because our leader, Jarosław Kaczyński, had prepared a team that could work hard for eight years as the opposition, and then won the elections, said the Prime Minister. As she added, Law and Justice won the elections because it listened to the voice of Poles.
We listened to the expectations of Polish people. These demands included sustainable development, economy and an equal chance for everyone, not only for chosen and narrow groups and elites, she underlined.
Effects of the Economy+ programme in Siedlce
Prime Minister Beata Szydło presented her congratulations on launching the investment to Minister of Energy Krzysztof Tchórzewski, who initiated the saving process of the plant, as well as to the company itself and to the local authorities. As she said,
the new production line will contribute to the development of the town and the whole Polish economy, and will improve the life of the residents of Siedlce and its vicinities. It will ensure employment in the region, as the investment will give job for about 60 persons. This also proves that the smart economic policy of the government of Law and Justice and the Responsible Development Plan, consistently implemented for two years, have paid off. We are restoring the industry and economy and we are giving equal opportunities, said the Prime Minister. She also added that many people had doubted whether social projects improving the well-being of Poles, such as the Family 500+ programme, would be successful.
We have not only implemented it – we have also made it a motor for Polish economy, stated the Prime Minister. She also thanked
all Poles for implementing the development programme for our Homeland along with Law and Justice.
Mostostal Siedlce, a key entity of the construction group Polimex-Mostostal, will spend ca. PLN 30 million on the construction of the new production line of platform gratings.
Separated from the structures of Polimex-Mostostal, the Steelwork Plant in Siedlce has been acting as a stand-alone company, Mostostal Siedlce, since 12 February 2016.
The Siedlce plant is currently one of the biggest establishments in Poland, specialising in production of steel constructions, platform gratings and anti-corrosive services. The company hires about 2,000 workers.
The new line will allow to increase the production volume of platform gratings by ca. 20%. Currently, the Siedlce plant produces about 2.5 tonnes of platform gratings per month. About 70% of platform grating produced on the new line is to be exported. The line is to be put into service in the middle of 2018.
