Chrudim will sell two plots of land in the Industrial Zone West to local companies. Peform Chrudim will buy 15,617 square meters, CityZen will take over 9,301 square meters. The city will receive almost CZK 25 million in total, the transactions were approved by the representatives, announced deputy mayor Petr Lichtenberg (Chrudimáci) today.

"Until this time, we sold a square meter for 650 crowns, now we had to react to the price increase. We increased the price to 990 crowns per square meter, which was accepted by the buyers," said Lichtenberg. According to him, it is gratifying that the city can support Chrudim companies and their businesses.

"I don't want there to be any assembly plants in Chrudim where there are lower-paid workers from Bulgaria or Azerbaijan, but for there to be companies here that produce something, develop and pay Czech workers well," said mayor František Pilný (ANO).

The company Peform is engaged in engineering production, specifically die forging, during which a semi-finished product heated to the forging temperature is pressed into a special form with the pressure of a hammer. The produced forgings will, as before, be transferred to the sister plant Pewag Vamberk, where they are assembled. The resulting product of engineering production are hooks, connecting links and components for snow, protective and endless chains. It already has his plant in the zone and wants to expand it.

The CityZen company produces clothes from specially treated cotton fabric that does not show sweat and does not get dirty. She has a patented technology, according to her, no one else in the world produces a similar substance. It needs the land in the zone for its factory for the production of so-called smart T-shirts.

The West industrial zone with an area of ​​33 hectares, the establishment of which cost Chrudim approximately CZK 100 million, is largely full. For example, the Chrudim company Dřevovýroba Ficek or the manufacturer of tubes for wind power plants Siag work here. The city also sold land to Sofiko, which manufactures baking trays and various types of molds for bakeries, or Kayaba, a manufacturer of automobile silencers. Plots in the industrial zone west are also owned by the Austrian chain manufacturer Pewag, the Chrudim companies Monas Trade Company, Redleta and Burkoň, or the Slatina company Stavební huť. The town hall kept the land on which the city wants to build a second, larger collection yard. The smaller industrial zone north of the exit from the city to Pardubice is already sold out.
