The Bydgoszcz Industrial Cluster Tool Valley is the most dynamically operating unit of this type in Poland. The Bydgoszcz Cluster allowed Lenso to have an interesting cooperation and integration with the environment of processors and toolmakers from the plastics sector. Thanks to the dynamic organization of the Cluster, we can be closer to the industry we are interested in the Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship.

DOPAK sp. z o.o. Emilia Sikora - Regional Sales Manager DOPAK sp. z o.o.

DOPAK's membership in the Bydgoszcz Industrial Cluster Tool Valley is one of the ways to achieve our mission, which is to be a supplier of machines and services at the highest level. Thanks to the Cluster, we are in constant contact with manufacturers of injection molds and plastics processors, and we also have easy access to the latest trends. Thanks to this knowledge, we can constantly enrich our offer with comprehensive solutions and products expected by customers. A big advantage is also access to the latest information in the area of subsidies and legislation. Numerous projects and joint initiatives, in which we participate together with other members of the cluster, consequently increase the competitiveness and recognition of our company. Together we can do more, which is why the presence in the cluster certainly also gives a greater opportunity to influence and take care of the interests of the plastics processing industry in Poland.
