  • Matthieu Fersing -

    Bydgoszcz is one of the strongest business centres in the Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship. Due to stable business environment, access to qualified personnel and competitive labour costs, the City is a good place for investment and development of existing business. An excellent example is Atos company.
    Atos established the office in Bydgoszcz in the year of 2000 with 6 people working for the branch at the time. During the last several years, the office has grown to reach the workforce of 3.000 people. It is a result of projects such as the 2014 IT Process Support Centre project which we managed to implement with the help of the local government. Due to our comprehensive IT services offer, we work with many different technologies which allows us to realise strategic projects for foreign clients. They are impressed by our well organised space and appreciate the competence and enthusiasm of the Polish staff.

    As an entrepreneur investing on the Bydgoszcz labour market, we have been cooperating with the team of Edyta Wiwatowska, operating first under auspices of the City and then as BARR since 2011. The effect of mutually initiated actions is the cooperation with the universities of Bydgoszcz and a secondary IT school.

Providing services in 13 different languages to customers worldwide, it is extremely important for us that the environment which we operate in reflects the global character of our work, which at the same time guarantees access to technical knowledge, excellent transport and technical infrastructure.

    Starting the business in Bydgoszcz in 2016, Cybercom Poland Sp. z o. o. received professional support from the Bydgoszcz Regional Development Agency Sp. z o. o. Substantive preparation from BARR in the form of the provision of all the necessary information when the company was opening the new branch in Bydgoszcz was at the highest level. We would like to emphasise that the team of Mrs Edyta Wiwatowska has been creatively supporting the initiatives of our company, allowing us to realise our goals more effectively. The support from BARR allowed us to quickly start the core operations for the branch in Bydgoszcz – the realisation of innovative projects in Automotive, Telecom R&D, Digitalisation and loT sectors.

    We wish all Polish cities to pride on people as involved in the creation of the investment climate as we experienced in the case of cooperation between BARR and Cybercom Poland Sp. z o. o.

    Arriving at the decision about developing logistics parks, we take the utmost care of choosing the location, which enables us to build objects that consider the needs of various tenants who look either for typical storage facility or production halls. Additionally to the location, there are more aspects of great importance such as road system, its development plans and personnel availability. These parameters where taken under thorough scrutiny while making decision about choosing Bydgoszcz as the location for our investment. The result of our observations was that the rapidly developing City of Bydgoszcz lacks production halls of a high standard. Industrial real estates built by Waimea Holding S.A. allow companies to grow and raise the quality and culture of work. In recent years, we have also observed a considerable development of small enterprises, which require smaller offices with access to small storage areas at the beginning of their activity. Waimea Logistic Park Bydgoszcz is being created in response to the market demands of the City of Bydgoszcz. In the initial stage of the investment there is a SBU (Small Business Units) hall to be built with the area of 9.072m2. It will provide warehouses and offices for micro and small entrepreneurs, startups and all the companies that need smaller storage facilities to operate. The minimum available warehouse units will have an area of 650m2 with office and social areas of 60m2. The second hall, with the area of 16.200m2, is designed for manufacturers and logistics operators dealing with cross-docking. The production and logistics centre of 90.000m2 is being developed in a 19 hectare area in the south-eastern part of Bydgoszcz. The property has good access to S10 express road and A1 highway. The public transport availability is another asset of the area, which ensures convenient access to the workplace for the personnel. The investment is located in a rapidly developing city, which records more and more intense economic activity. Well-developed communication infrastructure, international airport and modern railway stations are representative marks and pride of the City. It’s hard to ignore favourable demographic indicators – young and well-educated society and the fastest decline of unemployment in Poland. Bydgoszcz responds to the demands of the market and the requirements of developers, making the City a very attractive place for investors.

    Andrzej Rosiński - the CEO of - Waimea Holding S.A.
