EGGER at the Second Congress of the Future
On 7- 8 June 2018 at the UWM Conference Center in Olsztyn, the Second Warmia-Mazury Congress of the Future took place. The organizers of this event were the Self-Government of Warmian-Masurian Voivodship and Grupa WM.
During two days, discussion panels on the economy, technology or healthy lifestyle were attended by guests from all over the province and well-known personalities such as: Krzysztof Ibisz, Dorota Wellmann, Krzysztof Hołowczyc, and Iwona Pavlovic.
One of the important moments of the congress was presentation by the Marshal of the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship decorations in the following categories: Meritorious for the province, Pillars of the Economy of the Region, Leaders of Innovation 2018 and Investments of the Year 2017 Gazeta Olsztyńska.
The representative of our company - Waldemar Zawiślak - took part in the part devoted to the economy, in the panel entitled Why is it worth investing in Warmia and Mazury? Among the invited speakers were: Rafał Szczepański, Starosta Małgorzata Chyziak, Wojciech Śmieszek, Waldemar Klocek. The discussion participants talked vividly about the investment qualities of our voivodeship, both in terms of tourism and economy, taking into account the aspect of the Warmian-Masurian Special Economic Zone. In his speech Waldemar Zawiślak emphasized that running a business in the economic zone is not only benefits, but also duties that can not be forgotten.
The choice of Biskupiec as the location of the new Egger Group chipboard factory was preceded by a comprehensive analysis of available investment areas in Poland. Biskupiec offered excellent access to a well-developed transport infrastructure, both road and rail, guaranteeing the appropriate parameters of cargo transport. This is a key issue that has a significant impact on the functioning of the factory. The plant is located next to two national roads and in the vicinity of the railway network.
