As it has been announced, the ‘PZL Sędziszów S.A.’ has purchased majority ownership in the Czech enterprise: ‘Böhm Plast-Technik’. This will lead to an increased use of plastics in filter production.
Czech official bodies have approved the transaction regarding the acquisition of 69% of assets in the BPT by the ‘PZL Sędziszów S.A.’. Thus, the largest Polish filter producer has gained access to the state-of-the-art plastic injection moulding technologies. The company intends to use the capabilities of those technologies to, among other things, develop production of new filtering equipment dedicated for electric vehicles.
– For us, the acquisition of the Czech Böhm Plast-Technik enterprise is an important step towards modernising production technologies- explains Adam Sikorski, the President of the PZL Sędziszów S.A. – We intend to actively participate in the development electric vehicle network in Poland. This means that the manufacturers of automotive related parts will increase the use of plastic during production to reduce the weight of vehicles.
The first state of the agenda, after the acquisition of the Czech enterprise, is to integrate the commercial organisations of both companies. A close cooperation between the research and development departments will follow.
– We wish to start our cooperation as soon as possible and use the cutting-edge injection moulding technologies owned by the BPT – adds Adam Sikorski. – We are committed to it because, as a member of the Polish Automotive Group (PGM), we support the CURIE+ project which is focused on building the first Polish electric vehicle.
. CURIE+ is a project that won the competition held by the ElectroMobility Poland (EMP) for the visualisation of the body of an electric car. PGM member companies have shown interest in the project, including the ‘PLZ Sędziszów’ and, at the beginning of the year, submitted a request to the EMP for project financing. The project is focused on constructing a prototype of a Polish electric car.
