Polish family-run vinyl construction products manufacturer Pietrucha has announced it plans to invest nearly £258,000 to expand its plant in Lodz, Poland.

A leading national producer of PVC based window sills and profiles, Pietrucha aims to extend its capacity to make a range of plastics building components at the site in the Lodz economic development sub zone of Ksawerów, according to Palilz, Poland’s information and foreign investment agency.

The plant, one of two operated by the Blaszki, Poland-based company, was built in 2001 and comprises 10,000m² of warehouses, offices and a production hall. Enlargement will see it creating six more jobs in addition to the existing 36 employees at the site.

Pietrucha, founded by Stanislaw Pietrucha in 1960, has been extruding vinyl window and door profiles since the 1990s at its main Blaszki facility. It also recycles PVC material. The firm says its aim was to create a closed cycle of plastics materials processing.

Today, the company employs a workforce of more than 300. It is now owned by the founder’s son Andrezej Pietrucha who intends to hand over control eventually to his son Jerzy Pietrucha, according to the firm’s website.

Pietrucha also supplies exterior building polyurethane mouldings, XPS insulation panels and furniture vinyl edge banding products. In addition, Pietrucha group also manufactures vinyl acoustic panels for road screening, PVC sheet piling for civil construction and vinyl bar fencing.
