– 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.
