Mabuchi Motors – an investment worth 360 million
Mabuchi Motors is the leading global producer of small electric motors that supply among others windshield wipers, mirrors, seats, and other mobile elements in cars.
In 2016 the corporation decided to start the first production facility in Europe. The winning bid came from the Kraków Technology Park (KPT), who offered the best conditions for investment: a convenient plot in the Bochnia economic activity zone, situated by an exit from the A4 motorway, a short term for trudging through the red tape thanks ot the cooperation with the PAIH and the City of Bochnia, and obviously public aid in the form of a preferential tax relief. What was of key importance for the investor was the high quality of human capital, notably the highly qualified engineering staff educated mostly at the institutions of higher education in Kraków.
Mabuchi Motors is currently running the first stage of the investment. It is the company’s intention to employ around 400 people in its new factory built at the cost of PLN360 million. Its neighbours are Gór-Stal and Werner Kenkel, who have successfully used the support of the KPT for years. Mabuchi Motors is the largest greenfield investor in the Kraków special economic zone since 2005.
