The authorities work hard to streamline the development process to attract new projects that will create jobs.
The Bolesławiec plant is one of a number of positive initiatives undertaken recently by SRG Global that demonstrates its consistent growth despite challenging economic times. Other initiatives, including expansion of activity in China, and the groundbreaking for a new plant in Irapuato, Mexico, are in line with its business objective of establishing a global enterprise with regional and local design, engineering and manufacturing capabilities that will ensure consistent quality and delivery anywhere in the world.
Bolesławiec is located in Southwest Poland, approximately 45 km (25 mi) east of Germany at Görlitz. The 13,000m2 plant designs, produces and assembles high quality painted plastic parts, and features:
- Molding machines ranging in tonnage from 600 – 1,800
- Paint lines capable of using water or solvent-based paints
- Assembly cells that supply complete modular concepts.

The facility, which began production during the second quarter of 2010, meets or exceeds technologies recommended by the EU Best Available Technologies initiative to limit harmful emissions. The plant also complies with all EU and Polish regulations, and is ISO-TS Certified. It will be certified under ISO 14001 by the end of 2011.
