Wałbrzych SEZSpecial Economic Zone Wałbrzych

The Wałbrzych Special Economic Zone "INVEST-PARK" was established in 1997 and covers 174 Communes located in 3 Voivodeships of south-western Poland (Dolnośląskie, Opolskie and Wielkopolskie Voivodships). Thanks to the investments of global giants such as Toyota, Mercedes, Volkswagen and Umicore, not only the automotive industry is developing in south-west Poland, but also related industries such as metal and plastic processing, as well as logistics and warehouse services for this sector. Almost 50% of the companies operating in the WSEZ are representatives of small and medium-sized businesses. Micro-companies have also invested in the zone. WSEZ "INVEST-PARK" was also distinguished for the dynamic development of companies that have located their plants in it. Initially, another project of Toyota Motor Manufacturing Poland gained recognition. Thanks to these investments of the Japanese concern, Poland has become the second center, other than Asia, producing modern hybrid drives. The Wałbrzych Special Economic Zone "INVEST-PARK" is especially recommended for locating investments in Europe and appreciated for the quality and comprehensive service it offers entrepreneurs.
