About Wroclaw Industrial Park

Establishment of the Park

Wroclaw Industrial Park (WPP) was established on 14 May 2005 pursuant to an agreement signed between the Municipality of Wroclaw and DOZAMEL Sp. z o.o., Archimedes SA, and  Wrocławski Park Technologiczny SA. On 7 December 2007 Bombardier Transportation Polska Sp. z o.o. and Wojdyla Inwestycje Sp. z o.o. joined the signatories.

Wroclaw Industrial Park was established with a view to:

  • revitalizing industrial buildings, facilities and areas as well as developing new areas and assuring their effective use,
  • expanding and adapting the existing industrial facilities to the requirements of contemporary technologies, environmental protection and work safety,
  • adapting old industrial areas to meet the present and future needs in respect of the city’s spatial development,
  • attracting new investors and manufacturers as well as creating new jobs,
  • integrating the business community.

 

Park type

WPP is not a business entity but a 163 hectare zone located on the premises of the former factories of Archimedes, Dolmel and Pafawag, whose manufacturing traditions date back to the 19th century. There are approximately 140 office and industrial buildings and 19 hectares of roads at the site.  

The ownership structure in the area is complex, with land, properties and roads owned by 70 different entities (the biggest ones including DOZAMEL Sp. z o.o., the Municipality of Wroclaw, Bombardier Transportation Polska Sp. z o.o., Wojdyła Inwestycje Sp. z o.o.)

Managing entity

Pursuant to the agreement on the establishment of WPP, the Park is managed by DOZAMEL Sp. z o.o. - the successor of former Dolmel. DOZAMEL, a company wholly owned by the State Treasury, provides industrial services and manages the integrated infrastructure including workshops and storehouses as well as the water supply system, sewerage system, gas supply system, heat network, telecommunications and computer networks.   

As WPP’s managing entity, the company is responsible for planning the Park’s development, obtaining EU funds for its revitalization as well as improving business conditions for the companies operating in the Park and for future investors.

The Park’s managing entity undertakes initiatives and activities aimed at integrating the Park’s business community and creating a positive image of the WPP brand. It is also the originator and organizer of the National Industrial Parks Forum. 

 

Formal organizational structure of the Park

In order to provide a platform for the exchange of information and for collaboration on matters important to the Park, the managing entity puts great emphasis on cooperation within the Park. To this end, two bodies were established, i.e. the Park Council comprising all Park Members listed in the WPP Member Register and the Advisory Body including the signatories of the agreement on the establishment of the Park. Two documents  regulating business activities inside WPP, Regulations and Management Rules, were prepared and adopted.

Regulations are aimed at optimizing mutual relations between Park Members and regulating the scope and organization of activities of the Park’s bodies. They define the tasks and powers of Park Members, the managing entity, the Park Council and the Advisory Body. Management Rules, on the other hand, define the rules of conduct and mutual relations between Park Members and the managing entity with a view to leveraging the opportunities offered by the Park. The guiding principle inside WPP is the respect for property and ensuring that the rights of owners and business entities to freely conduct their business are not restricted in any way save for the regulations of law. 

Location

Wroclaw Industrial Park (WPP) stretches on a 163 hectare area,  on the premises of the former factories of Archimedes, Dolmel and Pafawag with a more than 100-year history of manufacturing. These historical names were used to call the three zones into which the Park was conventionally divided - Archimedes zone (A), Dolmel zone (B) and Pafawag zone (C). 

The Park is very conveniently connected with the airport (6 km), the Odra river port (4 km), a highway (8 km) and the city center (3 km). It is close to Wroclaw belt highway, the inner city beltway as well as the railway infrastructure, to which the site is connected by its own railway siding.
