Hispano-Suiza Polska kicks off plant construction and hiring

Sedziszow Małopolski, September 17, 2015

Hispano-Suiza Polska, the Polish subsidiary of Hispano-Suiza (Safran), has started the construction of a second plant and has begun to recruit new staff. This early recruitment gives Hispano-Suiza Polska the time needed to train staff for new positions.

The new plant requires highly qualified personnel, since it will make components and subassemblies for the state-of-the-art LEAP and Silvercrest jet engines from Snecma, a fellow Safran company. LEAP is an advanced turbofan engine that will power the new generation of single-aisle jets shortly to be introduced by Boeing, Airbus and Comac (China). Snecma's new Silvercrest engine will power new-generation business jets, including a new model from Dassault Aviation.

"We are hiring seasoned precision welders, numerical control machine operators, special process operators, quality inspectors, specialists in non-destructive testing, process engineers, quality engineers, fitters and other specialized staff," notes Kaja Zielonka-Foryś, Human Resources Manager for Hispano-Suiza Polska. Applications may be sent to kadry@hispano-suiza-polska.com

Hispano-Suiza Polska is recruiting all qualified persons. The company will also provide training courses for candidates lacking certain specific qualifications and will offer excellent carrier development opportunities. These are permanent contracts, with full benefits, including in-service training, medical coverage, life insurance, etc. A work's council offers additional benefits.

Hispano-Suiza Polska's second plant will be located near National Highway 4 in Sedziszow Małopolski. It is designed to provide all employees with a comfortable and efficient work environment. For example, a special "solatube" system channels daylight to areas not located near windows, while ventilation units will be installed to ensure adequate cooling during the summer.

"Construction of the building itself will start in the fourth quarter of 2015, and the framework will be erected by the end of the year," said Józef Cisek, Hispano-Suiza Polska No. 2 plant project manager. Machinery and equipment will be installed by July 2016. We will start operations with two production lines for low-pressure turbine blades and one line for low-pressure compressor rotors." 

Over the next few years, Hispano-Suiza Polska plans to hire more than 300 employees.
