The help and commitment of the City Hall and employees, especially the City Development Department, turned out to be irreplaceable. The Investor Service Point established at the City Hall, where entrepreneurs receive support, is a solution that it significantly facilitates getting to know the offer offered by the commune. Thanks to this help, our company benefited from real estate tax exemption, as well as from co-financing for the purchase of new machinery and equipment, which will allow the company to develop and expand the range of products and services." - Jacek Turczyński, entrepreneur, owner of Venti J.Turczyński general partnership.
