– We are looking at the growing demand for our packaging from current and new customers. The domestic market, supported by a record low unemployment rate and rising buds, is growing steadily. We do not rule out that we will accept a part of the production from outside printers from Germany because the local market is struggling with the lack of employees. Taking into account the above factors, we keep our optimism about the results of the company in the coming years – comments Andrzej Baranovski, vice president of BSC Drukarni Opakova.
