On May 29, 2018, employees of Oława administrative district’s authority and representatives of GTHR Poland signed a notarial deed.
The notarial deed is the final moment of the sale of a 6.5 ha plot in Godzikowice’s Economic Development Zone, where a production plant supplying inserts for electric batteries is to be developed. The investment outlay will amount to about $45 million.
As one of the world’s three biggest suppliers of electrolyte for Li-ion battery inserts, we are going to develop a production facility in Oława administrative district to supply our flagship product. The undertaking is one of the many new large-scale investments in Lower Silesia and part of the strategy laid out in the Programme for the Development of Electromobility in Poland, developed and implemented by the Ministry of Energy.
“The Godzikowice project undertaken by the Chinese investor Zhangjiagang Guotai-Huarong New Chemical Materials (GTHR) is an element of a strategy aiming to support the development of the electromobility industry in our country. We’re extremely glad that such investment projects are coming into being in Poland, which is becoming one of the world’s most important players operating in the sector. In the long run, it’ll translate into an increase in the popularity of electric cars on our roads. And result in a considerable improvement in air quality in Poland.” – says Krzysztof Senger, Vice President for Foreign Investment with PAIH (The Polish Investment and Trade Agency).
Its location will complement the European and regional network of the electric car industry. The plant’s annual output will make it possible to supply battery inserts for up to a million electric cars. At first, 60 employees will be hired, with the assumed target workforce amounting to about 100 people. Works on putting together all necessary documentation are currently in progress.
