Thales plans to build a second production plant in Tczew, the company said. A new facility with an area of 15,000 sq. m2, which is planned to be commissioned in the first quarter of 2024, will enable the optimization of local production processes and better adaptation to the current and future needs of customers.
“Thales has been regularly investing in its operations in Tczew for years, where the company produces identity and travel documents with technologically advanced security, as well as bank cards and related services. The lack of production space has so far limited the possible expansion of the business. The new investment will allow Thales to increase the production capacity of the Polish Production Competence Center in the field of identity and travel documents and respond to the growing customer demand for ‘made in Europe’ payment cards.
