Large Japanese investment in Poland. Daikin will create 1500 highly skilled jobs

 Japanese air-conditioning systems and heat pump maker Daikin's Polish unit will invest over one billion zloty ($250M) to build a factory producing heat pumps near Lodz in central Poland, multiple sources familiar with the matter say. Demand for heat pumps has been booming in Europe amid soaring gas prices, with consumers waiting months for installation.

At least 1.5 thousand jobs will be created thanks to Daikin's investment in the Łódź Special Economic Zone, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Thursday.

"We want Poland to be a thriving place for investors from all over the world. And today we have another proof that it will be so. Thanks to Daikin's investment, at least 1.5 thousand jobs will be created here in Ksawerów near Łódź. Poland as a special economic zone is becoming a fact," - said the Prime Minister.
