Every night, trucks transporting blades for wind turbines, manufactured by the Danish po-tentate, LM Wind Power Bla-des, leave the Goleniow Industrial Park. Swedwood, the Swedish cor-poration representing wood and furniture industry and associated with Ikea, has its headquarters in the very Goleniów. Sawmills and production plants owned by the corporation are scattered across the region and the country. A Danish producer of probably the best beer in the world has invested in the capital of the voivodeship. The Italian UniCredit, the Danish Coloplast and the German Metro prove that the city is attractive for investments in services. The second regional centre, the City of Koszalin, has become home for Royal Greenland Seafood, the largest fish processor in Europe, and the  Portuguese  Jeronimo  Martins  has  opened a logistics centre here. The Japanese Bridgestone produces tyres for trucks and buses in the Industrial Park of Latest Technologies in Stargard Szczeciński. Cargotec, the world leader in the production of cargo transportation and handling equipment and machinery, opened its modern plant right next to it. According to Harri Ojala, Vice Chairman of the Finnish  Cargotec  Corporation,  the  place  of  their investments has all the features to run our busi-ness: proximity to European clients, a port, motorways, appropriate logistics solutions and a road investment plan. Ulrich Dohle, Vice Chairman of Tognum AG seems to share his opinion. The German giant is starting a construction of a modern plant manufacturing engine parts in Stargard.
