Gurit plans to open a wind blade mold production facility in Szczecin, Poland. The expansion is targeted at further increasing the company`s tooling market share in Europe.

The company has been serving European wind blade manufacturers with wind blade molds and related equipment since 2010. The new production facility in Szczecin, Poland, will improve customer proximity and enable faster delivery times, Gurit says.

Production in Szczecin is scheduled to start in the fourth quarter of 2016.
