It offers everything we need to run our business: the proximity to our European clients, the port, the motorway, adequate logistic solutions and road investment plans. Moreover, I am also impressed by the academic centres of West Pomerania. I am looking forward to cooperating with them. (...) First, excellent cooperation with local government. Second, the possibility of buying a 41 hectare plot of land. Third, the logistics links and proximity to our client base (...)
