Businesses currently in Freeport of Ventspils
Member of the Board and manager of EUROLCDS IlmÄrs Osmanis:
ā Thanks to the support of Ventspils municipality and the Freeport Administration, we can successfully operate in the largest clean room in Latvia as well as in a totally new industrial building. A perfectly developed infrastructure is also ready for us to use. We evaluated several sites for placing our liquid crystal display manufacturing plant. The benefits of Ventspils, that were not present in other sites, were the available industrial park with enough energy capacities, which was of utmost importance for us, as well as the promise of Ventspils Freeport to build an industrial building and rent it to as, plus the Ventspils University College in which electronic and IT engineers are studying. We need engineers with fresh knowledge as well as managers.
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.
