Grawer Polska has been successfully operating in the European market for more than 12 years, consistently implementing development plans and successive investments such as the construction of a second production plant, its own production of engraving brass and the creation of a training centre. Until the outbreak of the pandemic, it enjoyed annual growth rates of 20-30%, achieved not so much by increasing employment (which has stabilised for several years at 120 people), but by optimising and automating processes and improving technology. The pandemic-induced slowdown in the market for highly-processed packaging was used to develop an IT system that moved Grawer Polska into the top league of production companies implementing the Industry 4.0 concept.
