This Japanese corporation, the world’s largest manufacturer of small electric motors, will build a plant in the Krakow Special Economic Zone.
Warsaw, July 17, 2017 – Dentons, the world’s largest law firm, provided comprehensive legal and tax support to Mabuchi Motor, throughout its investment into a new plant in the Krakow Special Economic Zone in Poland. Dentons successfully represented Mabuchi Motor at the public auction where the land was purchased from the local municipality, negotiated the property purchase agreement, advised on the available investment incentives and tax solutions, and procured a license to operate in the special economic zone. The Firm also provided advice on day-to-day regulatory, tax and corporate matters.

This makes us a natural choice for both foreign investors and Polish firms seeking to expand their business.”
The plant will manufacture automotive components and spare parts for the motoring industry, including electric motors used to drive automotive appliances. The plant is designed to serve as a major production hub to cater to rising demand from European clients. The construction project officially kicked off on Wednesday, July 12, 2017. The plant is scheduled to launch production by late 2019, and will reach full capacity in 2023, with a planned output of 16 million motors annually. It will create jobs for 400 employees.
