Strabag to build new Volkswagen plant in Poland very quickly

In what is being called one of the biggest investments in the country in 25 years, Volkswagen is developing a new factory in Poland to make the next generation of its VW Crafter vans (pictured), and Strabag will build most of it – and fast.

The Polish subsidiary of publicly listed German firm announced yesterday that it had won the contract. 

It will build three of the five concrete and steel buildings on the 220 ha plot of land in Września in just eight months, the company said, with completion scheduled for the beginning of next year.

Thomas Birtel, CEO of Strabag, said he was delighted because this will be the second job the firm has done for Volkswagen in Poland. The first, a production facility in Polkowice, opened in April.

"The signing of this new contract confirms our client’s satisfaction with our work and the trust in the continued working relationship," he said.

The new plant is being built in the Wałbrzych Special Economic Zone, called "Invest-Park". It is near the A2 motorway. Railway lines between Berlin and Moscow pass close by.

The construction project in Września represents one of the largest investments in Poland in 25 years, Strabag said.
