A Polish bathroom and kitchen products manufacturer has opened a €3.6m plant producing polymer-based granite composite basins and sinks
The new 5,000 m2 facility, established by the company Deante Wagran in Tomaszow Mazowiecki close to Lodz in Poland, employs around 70 and has the capacity to produce 100,000 granite sink components. The firm employs a production technology developed along with the Institute of Polymer Technology at the Technical University of Lodz to manufacture the high strength sinks. The composite, which uses polymers blended with granite and quartz, was created after more than two years of research and development, according to the Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency Palilz. Deante Wagran’s site in the Lodz Special Economic Zone, which makes use of equipment from Germany and Poland, also includes a research and development unit. The new plant is set to become Europe’s fourth largest of its kind, said Palilz. Deante Wagran, part of the Deante group based in Lodz, was founded in 2007.
