– The decision of the factories creation in Ventspils has largely been taken considering such aspects as the existence of already prepared production space (prepared factory for modular building construction), the existence of the port and its own docks, also the availability of a skilled workforce, as well as the geographical location of Ventspils - the closeness to the potential markets in Scandinavia.
