LPP is renowned for clothing brands  such as RESERVED, MOHITO, House, Cropp and SiNSAY. The company’s owners plan to generate this year’s turnover around 10 billion zloty (EUR 5 billion). The undisputed leader in Polish clothing sector has a long term ambition  to catch up with the world's largest clothing manufacturers such as Inditex, Adidas, H&M, Associated British Foods.

The company’s investment in Brześć, its largest investment to date, includes the construction of a factory which will be located within the Brzeska Economic Zone, in Brześć Kujawski district.

The investment project has been supported by Kuyavian-Pomeranian Investor Assistance Centre (COI) in collaboration with the real estate industrial and logistical agency Colliers International.

Parameters of the proposed investment are quite impressive: warehouse space – 100 000 square meters with the 150 000 sq. meters usable area. The total investment value is 500 million zlote (EUR 125 million). Around 1 000 jobs will be created, mostly for warehouse employees, maintenance specialists, logistics staff, engineers and managers.

During the meeting, the Marshal Sławomir Kopyść thanked LPP for their investment interest in our region, stating that it will have highly positive influence on our region’s development. He also mentioned the on-going project support from the Self-Government of Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodship and the Regional Investor Assistance Centre (COI).

It has so far remained the biggest and most modern manufacturing facility of this type in East-Central Europe. Approximately 8 million articles of clothing are distributed there weekly. There are plans for the new facility in Brześć to exceed this number per 2 million.

During the meeting in Pruszcz, a letter of intent, concerning LPP’s and  the City Council’s willingness to undertake joint action in support of local community, was signed. That partnership will actively involve education, culture and recreation.
