Awards are not only the crowning of some idea, undertaking, achievements and actions but they also provide motivation to work, and are goalposts for the further, good direction, said Henryk Słomka– Narożański, Vice Mayor of Tarnów.
During the 7th Investment Forum in Tarnów, the “Investor of the Year” and “the Investment of the Year” awards were officially granted by the Forum Policy Council.
“The Investment of the Year” award went to the Silesian Museum in Katowice and the “Investor of the Year” award went to NEWAG S.A.
The Forum Policy Council justified their choice by emphasizing that NEWAG is one of the two biggest Polish companies which manufacture, modernize and repair rolling stock. NEWAG-manufactured trains carry passengers in many regions of Poland. The Company started its expansion on international markets successfully competing with world-famous producers. The story of NEWAG exemplifies the great potential of Polish industry.
Wiesław Piwowar, NEWAG’s Vice President, while accepting the award from the hands of Janusz Lewandowski, European MP, stressed that the award with which the Forum Policy Council honoured the company, its workforce, managers and the board of directors provided a strong incentive to work harder and develop the company further.
