Not many people remember that the city of Nowa Sarzyna was formed around our plant, which financed the construction of the settlements, schools or the hospital. We are a vital part of the local community, to which we want to be a good neighbour. We employ over 600 people and support many local companies. Hence, we want to continue to develop with advantages for the local community, regional economy and the entire country – says Mariusz Grelewicz, Chairman of the Board of CIECH Sarzyna.
