Additional Information

ComArch, a producer of information technology solutions, is expanding further. The company constructed a manufacturing and office complex within the Special Economic Zone of the Cracow Technology Park in 2004 and had announced that by the end of 2006, it would create 1,300 positions in the new facilities. Since then, the company has grown to employ more than 1800 people and announced in March 2006 that it plans to hire 400-500 employees per year to reach a level of about 3000 employees by 2008. The increase in employment will be associated with the development of the company’s own programming and software creation activities.
