Strip-tillage specialist Mzuri has announced the opening of a new manufacturing facility in Poland to meet the rapidly growing demand in export and home markets.
The move is a joint venture with Polish firm An-Agro, and the new factory is to be built in Bydgoszcz in the north of the country.
Most of the machinery produced at the site will be destined for Central and Eastern Europe, while Mzuri’s UK operation in Pershore will continue to manufacture, market and service machines for the UK, Scandinavian and Western European regions.
“These are very exciting times for the company and we look forward to pooling our resources with An-Agro to grow the European region further,” says Mzuri managing director Martin Lole.
“The business has been going from strength to strength with the demand more than doubling this year, both in the UK and overseas. With the interest being particularly strong in Poland, Russia and Ukraine, the decision to open a factory close to market will help us to better service the area.
“The additional capacity in Poland is intended to free up some of the UK’s production, which will allow us to be more responsive to the rapidly expanding UK market.”
