Rosti Poland recently relocated its Elewatorska plant to join the Group’s existing plant in Mysliwska, to create one of the largest plastic injection moulding facilities in Europe. Rosti Poland was established in 1999 in Elewatorska, Bialystok – northeastern Poland’s largest city. In 2015 the Group acquired Bianor Solutions, an injection moulding and solution provider to major OEM’s, located on the other side of the city in Mysliwska.
Due to the rapid growth of the Group’s expanded Poland operations, plans to integrate the two facilities were put into action, with the construction of a new 14,000m2 production hall, which was completed in January 2017.
Relocation took eight months, and was completed in July 2017. “From January 2017 to July 450 people, 33 machines, 180 tools and 33 assembly lines were moved. This was done with care and precision and without any health and safety incidents, or impacting our customers” said Rafal Cybulski, Managing Director of Rosti Poland. On July 16th, the 1,300 employees of the newly expanded facility celebrated the successful completion of the merging of the two plants with a grand feast.
The new hall features a 14-metre high semi-automated storage warehouse, assembly hall, quality laboratory and tampo print room. Combined with the existing facility, Rosti Poland now offers customers a 30,000m2 state-of-the-art facility with more than 150 injection moulding machines with a clamping force range of 25T-1300T and a logistics centre with storage facilities for more than 18,000 pallets.
“The merging of the two facilities enables us to provide our customers with global manufacturing and distribution for a leaner supply chain and shorter lead times to market, giving them and us a competitive advantage.” concludes Rafal Cybulski.
