Electric cars are the future of our planet and the best solution to its environmental issues. We aim to contribute to the new chapter in the history of humanity starting today.
Zhangjiagang Guotai-Huarong New Chemical Materials Co., Ltd. was founded in 2000. We are a technologically advanced company which produces both organosilicon compounds and electrolyte. We rank among the three biggest suppliers of electrolyte for production of lithium-ion batteries in the world and operate in conformity with the highest standards of ISO9001 and IATF16949.
Extending the company’s activity to Prusice, a town in Lower Silesia voivodeship in Poland, is our first investment outside of China. This was made possible due to the cooperation between Zhangjiagang Guotai-Huarong New Chemical Materials Co., Ltd. and Jiangsu Runtai Chemical Co., Ltd. based in China.
We deeply care about production standards, therefore our operations comply with European, Polish, and local standards. The plant will not influence the locals in any way whatsoever. This means that we are also ready to handle emergency situations should they arise. We have formulated precise emergency procedures and provided safety measures in case of potential industrial accidents. We strive to co-operate with organizational units of the education system, social services, healthcare institutions and other institutions which may be affected as a result of potential industrial accidents. All the necessary materials and reports relating to safety have been formulated and presented to relevant authorities.
At the early stages of our operation in Prusice, we expect a workforce consisting of 70 employees. As we progress, we expect to hire around 150 employees.
First and foremost, we are looking to hire people with previous experience in big enterprises in the chemical industry. Command of English is considered an additional advantage. New employees will undergo training to help them adapt to their roles. For more information on each position, please see the CAREERS tab.
All newly hired employees undergo trainings helping them adapt to their new roles.
Production is set to start in 2022.
We produce electrolyte used in production of lithium-ion battery inserts. The inserts we produce are expected to be fitted in up to 1,000,000 car batteries each year.
Ever since the very early stages of our investment, we have aimed to support the local communities and we will continue to do so in the future. A production company of this size is going to noticeably influence development of the local economy by paying taxes to the local government and offering a wide array of job opportunities to the local people. We also aim to support and finance the development of local sports, events, and education. The electrolyte produced in our plant is going to provide companies based in Europe and around the world with means to obtain resources used in production of lithium-ion battery inserts currently found in electric cars. Basing the plant in the region of Lower Silesia expands the European and regional electric cars network.
Yes, it is. Many local companies have become our partners already. We are looking to extend our partnership to regional universities to cooperate on research.
There are two additional branches in China, in the regions of Jiangsu and Fujian. Both of the plants also produce electrolyte.
Most of our resources are going to be imported from China. Certain suppliers have already expressed interest in our operations and we are looking into possible opportunities for cooperating. We expect other foreign companies to follow suit and invest in the Polish market.
The total investment in our plant is going to amount to around $59 million.
