POLAND: Danfoss is to invest €14m in a new 10,000m² production hall at its plant in Grodzisk Mazowiecki, Poland, to accommodate new valve production lines being transferred from Denmark.
The new plans are revealed after Danfoss made clear its decision to close its refrigeration and air conditioning valves factory in Kolding, Denmark, in 2022, moving production to the Polish plant.
Full production in the new factory is scheduled to start in January 2022, although the first lines will start operating at the beginning of 2021, the company says.
Located in central Poland, 30km south west of Warsaw, the 20,000m² Grodzisk Mazowiecki plant was established in 2002. This new expansion will make it one of the largest Danfoss campuses in the world. Over 330 people are expected to be employed in the new production hall.
In a further move, production of a new pressure switch for CO2 applications, the result of the Danfoss joint venture with Japanese manufacturer Saginomiya, will also be centred at the Grodzisk Mazowiecki plant. Production is scheduled to start in August.
