The Cluster was established in March 2011 and is located in the north-western region of Poland. The aim of its initiative is the dynamic development by means of expanding the range of the internal cooperation as well as the cooperation with the external companies (domestic and foreign).
The METALIKA Cluster brings together the companies representing metal industry and the companies operating in metal-related sectors located in the Zachodniopomorskie, Wielkopolskie, and Pomorskie Voivodeships [West Pomeranian, Greater Poland, and Pomeranian Voivodeships]. The companies operating within the Cluster reach sales of PLN 320 million and employ about 2300 workers.
The vast majority of the companies brought together by the Cluster are the enterprises that have been present on the market for many years. These are both the branch leaders on a national scale as well as important regional players. Almost all of the companies have experience in cooperating with foreign partners, especially those from German and Scandinavian markets. The export of the companies operating within the Cluster reaches up to about 50 per cent. All of the companies find the reliability and quality of production highly important and, therefore, have many certificates as well as specialist trade and national authorizations.
Enterprises operating in the cluster represent the smart specialization of the West Pomeranian Voivodeship “Advanced metal products” (http://smart.wzp.pl/inteligentne-specjalizacje/wykaz-inteligentnych-specjalizacji-pomorza-zachodniego/zaawansowane-wyroby-metalowe)
