Producing lithium-ion batteries, BMZ Poland has launched a new factory in Gliwice on Monday. The cost of the investment is about 9 million euros. Amount of the workplaces in the company will increase by 50 people, to about 700 employees, and within two years will grow to more than 1000 people.
The market at which we operate is growing at a rate of about 25%. annually. Responding to this increase, we increase both the volume of production and the employment – said the president of the German BMZ group, which belongs to the Polish company – Sven Bauer. He emphasized the significance of the Polish company for the whole international group.
Polish company BMZ has been operating in Gliwice for seven years. Specializes in the production of battery packs for electric bicycles, as well as for power tools, gardening tools, medical apparatus, etc. It also designs and produces intelligent lithium-ion power supply systems and electric bus batteries.
New employees will include both production sites and specialist areas in the research and development department, where a dedicated team to take care of the latest electric power bus systems will be formed.
Thanks to the modular lithium-ion storage system, generated photovoltaic energy can be stored in modules for future needs, and excess energy can be fed to the grid selectively, depending on the evening, night or period of reduced sunshine. In Poland, the biggest interest show petrol stations and small shops, households are less interested in such products.
The BMZ Group employs approximately 2.3 thousand employees in Germany, Poland, France, USA, China and Japan and has about 2,000 customers. It implements over 250 new projects a year. Electric buses based on BMZ power systems run in the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Germany, Austria, France and the United Kingdom.
