Ontex opens new production facility in Poland

 

Aalst-Erembodegem, 19 February 2019 – Ontex Group NV (“Ontex”). Ontex Group NV (“Ontex”) officially opened its new production facility in Radomsko, Poland today. The newly built Radomsko plant fits in Ontex' ambition to expand its international presence and will allow the company to better serve the Eastern-European market.

The first production line of the Radomsko site was officially opened today, at an event attended by local media and partners. Construction of the facility began back in 2017, with an entire investment estimated at 16 million euros. The 26.000 sqm factory was built on a 110.00 sqm site. It is an environmentally friendly facility of which the products are marked with a green energy certificate. In the next years, the facility will expand its capacity from 1 to 4 production lines. By 2020, Ontex Radomsko should employ at least 170 locally recruited employees.

“We are very proud to extend our production capacity in Poland, which is testimony to our strong commitment to the Eastern European market” CEO of Ontex, Charles Bouaziz, said.
Until now, Ontex has been serving Poland by importing products from the Czech Republic. The swift development of the Polish market and its advantageous location drove the decision to set up a local facility, CEO Charles Bouaziz explained: “At Ontex, we strongly believe in a local market approach, with manufacturing plants which are strategically located to allow us to respond efficiently and flexibly to consumers and customers’ needs. The new production facility in Radomsko will help us better serve our expanding retailer customer base in the region”.
