VMI expands Poland plant
VMI is opening two additional manufacturing halls in Poland following the “unprecedented success” of its original project in the city of Lezsno. In addition, the company announced the appointment of Magda Sadowska as general manager of the Lezsno facility.
The Poland factory opened in 2017 to enhance the global manufacturing base of the VMI Group. In order to facilitate continuing growth and deliver the service that the modern tyre industry demands, plans for a second phase, which doubles the size of the plant, have been brought forward.
Magda Sadowska, who is an expert in lean manufacturing and quality systems, together with general manager Jos van Oosterbosch, built the Lezsno facility from scratch, and is now responsible for a highly educated and motivated work force of over 150.
Harm Voortman, CEO of the VMI Group: “VMI would like to thank Jos van Oosterbosch for building a world class facility and the successful start-up in Leszno. With the appointment of Magda Sadowska as General Manager of VMI Poland, we are convinced that the strategic role of Poland will contribute to the continued growth of VMI.
We wish Magda every success in her new position.”
