Managing Director of Bucher Municipal Niklaus Huser:
– Thank’s to the favorable frame conditions from Latvia and special the City of Ventspils with the well developed infrastructure and relatively low production cost, Ventspils wone the production place competition in the eastern countries. Our Bucher production Companie in Ventspils is a success story for Bucher and the cooperation with the Freeport of Ventspils. After consolidation of the successful production the Management of Bucher made a strategical decision in 2012 to take over land and building from the Freeport of Ventspils for further growing development and expansion of the sweeper business at Ventspils.
Chairman of the Board of Diana Candles Lars Olesen:
– 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 – 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 – it can be a concert in the theatre house Sea Gate (JÅ«ras vÄrti) or skiing on the mountain Lembergs’ Trilby (Lemberga HÅ«te). The city knows the wishes of people.
