On 03.04.2024, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defence, Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz, together with a delegation, visited the PRONAR Exhibition Centre and the Recycling and Municipal Machinery Factory in Siemiatycze, as well as factories in Narew. He was accompanied by the Secretary of State at the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Stefan Krajewski, and the Leader of the List for the Sejmik from the PSL, Agnieszka Zawistowska.

Deputy Prime Minister Kosiniak-Kamysz’s visit to PRONAR was an opportunity to highlight the importance of Polish industry and its potential on the national and international markets.

The first point of the meeting was a visit to the PRONAR Exhibition Centre in Siemiatycze – a facility unique in Europe. There, the invited guests got acquainted with the company’s rich, over 35-year history and got to know all the recycling, municipal and agricultural machines manufactured by PRONAR, as well as the wide range of components for hydraulic and pneumatic systems, axles and transmission systems, plastics and disc wheels, in the production of which PRONAR is the world’s vice-leader. The guests also toured the production halls where the recycling machines are made and learnt about all the modern production technologies – from steel cutting to robotized welding, automatic painting lines and finally assemble processes.

The visit to Narew began with a tour of the new Disc Wheel Department Factory, officially opened at the end of November 2023. The high degree of automation in production, the intelligent painting lines and the rim-forming lines developed by PRONAR engineers are just a selection of the technological innovations that particularly impressed the invited guests. In the words of PRONAR’s CEO – Sergiusz Martyniuk: “Nothing better has been invented than the wheel. PRONAR wheels drive the vast majority of agricultural and industrial machinery in more than 80 countries around the world”.

Both during the visit to Siemiatycze and Narew, the invited guests met with the PRONAR company’s crew.

Deputy Prime Minister Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz said: “We must direct our efforts towards the arms industry. (…) In the coming months, a lot of companies will perform a lot of tasks for the Polish army, for the arms industry”.

The PRONAR company, with its machinery park and entire technological and construction facilities, is able to respond to emerging production needs. The delegation was impressed by PRONAR’s extensive range of products, which includes over 150 models of trailers for various purposes, a complete range of grassland machinery lines, recycling machines and municipal machines for summer and winter road maintenance.

The Secretary of State at the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development – Stefan Krajewski – pointed out that agriculture in Poland is currently in a difficult situation. He expressed his deep appreciation for all Polish farmers, thanking them for their commitment and daily effort in building the Polish agricultural industry. Words of appreciation were also addressed to the PRONAR company’s Management Board for not only creating jobs for thousands of employees, but also building the Polish industry.

The presence of high-ranking government representatives and their interest in innovative solutions and the production potential of the PRONAR company underlines the importance of Polish industry as a pillar of the country’s economic development and is an important step towards building synergies between the public and private sectors.
