The expansion will create new capacities for microcellular polyurethane (MCU) foam components, among other things, and Vibracoustic will also be setting up a prototype construction unit at the site. A total of 50 jobs will be created. The Sroda Slaska I plant currently employees 360 people, with an additional 400 or so on the payroll at its sister factory, Sroda Slaska II.
