- The development of special economic zones or technology parks are investments that turn 100%, because they all benefit from them: entrepreneurs who have ideal places to grow their business, local governments - because they gain additional income to their budgets and can invest them in further economic development, or, finally, residents who gain new jobs - said Marshal of the Małopolska Region Jacek Krupa during the annual meeting at the Kraków Technology Park, during which the 2017 year in the Krakow Special Economic Zonewas summed up.
 

The Marshal of the Małopolska Region Jacek Krupa also encouraged local governments to create new investment areas. All the more so because funds for this purpose can be obtained from the Regional Operational Programme of the Małopolska Region, for which EUR 60 million have been allocated.

 

The biggest success of the Kraków SEZ is, of course, the investment of Mabuchi Motor Poland Ltd in Bochnia. As part of the permit, Mabuchi declared that it would incur capital expenditures in the amount of PLN 113 million and create 253 new jobs. This year, except Mabuchi, 12 Polish companies invested in the Kraków SEZ, and 7 were reinvestments.

 

Kraków Technology Park is not only Kraków SEZ manager. Recently, this business environment institution has launched the KPT ScaleUp accelerator, a project aimed at small companies working on innovations for the industry and smart city. Thanks to it, during the 13-week programme for start-ups, they gain not only the help of experts from a given industry, but also financial support and the opportunity to test their products and services in partner companies. What is worth emphasizing, last year the start-ups located in KPT gained PLN 288 million from investors.

 

From the beginning of the Kraków special economic zone to the end of 2017, the KTP issued a total of 256 permits to operate in SEZ. Capital expenditures of enterprises operating in it amounted to PLN 4.5 billion. This allowed the creation of over 23,000 jobs. Last year, the zone also gained an additional 83 ha. Currently, its area is 949 ha, which consists of 36 subzones located in 35 communes located in three voivodships: Małopolskie, Podkarpackie and Świętokrzyskie.

The largest investments to date in the Kraków SEZ are: Comarch - advanced IT systems (Kraków), Somfy (Sopem) - gate drives (Niepołomice), Brembo - high-performance brake systems (Niepołomice), Motorola Solutions Systems - a research and development center and a financial center (Kraków), Valeo - automotive parts (Skawina and Chrzanów), RR Donnelley - printing services and business services (Kraków), Bahlsen Poland - food processing (Skawina), Shell Business Operations - global operations center (Kraków), MAN Trucks - producer lorries (Niepołomice), Nidec - production of electric motor motors (Niepołomice), and the investment mentioned above: Mabuchi Motor in Bochnia.

 

Last year was a very good year for all SEZ in Poland. All 14 zones in Poland issued a total of 352 permits, ie more than 100 permits more than in 2016 (increase by 37%). The companies declared a total of PLN 19.1 billion in investments and the creation of 13.2 thousand jobs. This result approached the result from the record-breaking 2014, when 463 permits for operations in the zones were issued, investment outlays declared by investors reached PLN 21.0 billion and number of new jobs declared to creat by investors reached 20.5 thousand (by 4.5 thousand more than last year).
