Project for implementing technological innovations in the manufacturing process

Further dynamic technological development of our company and its offer was hindered by our machinery stock, which made it impossible to, among others, increase production to the required extent and carry out manufacturing operations for introducing new and improved products. For this reason, in 2018, we launched a project titled “Implementing technological innovations in the manufacturing process for plastic electrical products at P.W.U.H. PLAST-ROL to create conditions for commencing production of new and improved product range as a result of R&D”

The scope of the project was planned to overcome the aforementioned barriers to development, and its implementation led to PROCESS, PRODUCT AND NON-TECHNOLOGICAL innovations, representing a kind of “leap” in the company’s development which stemmed from the adopted “PLAST-ROL Development Strategy for 2015-2020”.

Project no. RPWP.01.05.02-30-0050/18 led to the purchase of 3 modern injection moulding machines, 16 injection moulds and a number of devices which made it possible to launch new and innovative products.

Total value of the project: PLN 3,620,628.00
Eligible expenditure: PLN 2,943,600.00
Planned funding: PLN 1,030,260.00
