Businesses currently in Freeport of Ventspils
Chairman of the Board of Diana Candles Lars Olesen:
ā One of the reasons for us to choose Ventspils was the special economic zone, which can be found elsewhere in Latvia, too, but an additional argument in favor of the Freeport of Ventspils was the cooperation with and support from the local authorities ā the municipality and the Freeport. Our company employs around 180 people, who do their work very well and with high quality. Ventspils is a beautiful city, which offers a vast range of leisure time activities to choose from ā it can be a concert in the theatre house Sea Gate (JÅ«ras vÄrti) or skiing on the mountain Lembergsā Trilby (Lemberga HÅ«te). The city knows the wishes of people.
Aleksejs Vasiljevs, Procurator at AS Wasserkabel Baltic:
ā Ventspils is a friendly city for our business and very beneficial in terms of traffic where everything is located together ā port, railway, motorway. Upon starting the business, we were granted tax incentives, which is very important for new companies, and we also received fast and qualitative assistance at various municipal institutions of Ventspils City.
Wasserkabel is an energy-efficient and convenient heating and cooling system that is very popular also outside the Baltic States. With our customer base expanding, we are planning to use transportation services of the Port of Ventspils in the future as well, delivering our products to customers around the world.
