Businesses currently in Freeport of Ventspils
Forta Prefab board member Ermins Sniedze:
– 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.
Member of the Board of Ventspils Welding Plant JevgÄnijs Lapkovskis:
– It is much easier to work in Ventspils than in Riga – less red tape and cooperation with the municipality make Ventspils attractive for us. One of the factors making the city unique is the ability to combine tourism and industry. The North Kurzeme Vocational Education Competence Centre offers training programs that are directly related to the company’s field of activity, e.g. Metalworking, Electronics, Mechanical Engineering Technology and others.
