“We decided to continue the previously planned modernization of the plant in Ostrołęka. This is not our first initiative. Recently, in 2019, we completed the construction of a new glass processing plant in Białystok. Our subsequent investments are a response to the growing demand on the construction market and architectural.” said Krzysztof Granicki, Managing Director – AG Europe East & Nordic, NSG Group. “The plant in Ostrołęka is extremely important for the local community.

We currently employ over 100 people, and thanks to the expansion, this number will double. Recruitment will start in early January.”
