Józefczuk: I’m positively surprised with Lithuania
‘’We have signed a contract for renovation of the Pac Palace building and it is the order of the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs’’ – said guest of Salon Polityczny Mirosław Józefczuk, member of the Warbud company that is responsible for renovation of Pac Palace in Vilinius.
Poland is a very tough construction market. At this moment, it is the biggest construction site in Europe. Unfortunately, constructing companies are arriving to Poland from all over the world and that results in a strong competition. We have decided to go beyond Poland. Our first direction is Lithuania. I’m very happy about that. It’s my first time in Lithuania and I’m amazed.”- Mirosław Józefczuk said.
Warbud SA company is one of the biggest construction companies in Poland which hires over 1000 employees. To its credit, the company has i.e. building of sewage treatment plant in Warsaw where the construction costs amounted to almost 3 billion zlotys. Currently, Warbud SA is finishing the building of Mr Tadeusz Museum in Wroclaw.
“We have signed a contract for renovation of the Pac Palace building and it is the order of the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It is the building of the Polish Embassy in Lithuania. I visited it yesterday. I was observing the progress of the construction works’’- the member of board said.
In Józefczuk’s opinion the entry into the Lithuanian market was successful. “I’m positively surprised. I was reading a lot about the Lithuanians’ approach towards Poland and Poles. In Poland, we hear a lot of talk about problems, such as spelling of the names or double naming. There are probably such issues. I am surprised however because we don’t have any problems related to that. We didn’t have any administrative problems” – he stressed.
Warbud SA does not want to limit itself only to Lithuania. ‘’My optimism is connected with a fact that we are planning further constructions. Today, I went to the city hall. I saw the Vice-mer and we talked about further investments. We will probably be responsible for public tenders. We also thought about private investments. We are considering other Baltic countries, as well’’- Józefczuk pointed.
