We owe great respect to those who create jobs in Poland. “ I am proud of Polish companies which manufacture innovative products meeting European standards,” emphasized Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz during her visit at NEWAG S.A. – a rolling stock manufacturer from Nowy Sącz.
Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz noted that NEWAG is one of the oldest railway companies in Poland. The company has a great future, also due to its opening to European markets, said Mrs Kopacz. Factories like NEWAG are building Polish economy. Thanks to such companies Małopolska Province has received a prestigious title of the European Entrepreneurial Region 2016, she added.
Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz had a closer look at the train which is being manufactured for Koleje Mazowieckie and on her way to a press briefing, she managed to chat with production workers. Mrs Ewa Kopacz gave her praises to NEWAG. This is the company which has existed for 140 years. As the first Polish rolling stock manufacturer, it obtained all TSI certificates ensuring that trains manufactured by NEWAG meet all stringent EU standards. Newag’s manufactured train also holds the speed record (211 km/h) and its trains reach the European-level reliability ratio exceeding 99%.
“The company may be proud of its very dynamic growth in the last few years and its further plans together with the financial statement inspire a lot of optimism. This company has a great future as far as creating new workplaces is concerned. Now it employs approx. 2000 people,” said Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz and congratulated President Konieczek and all employees of NEWAG S.A
