US-based multinational technology company Corning has opened a new optical fibre manufacturing facility in Mszczonów, Poland, creating 250 jobs. The factory is the latest in a series of global investments by Corning in fibre and cable manufacturing totalling more than $500m since 2020.

The facility is one of the largest optical fibre plants in the EU and will help meet growing demand for high-speed connectivity in the region.

The company has cited the skilled workforce and technical training available in the greater Warsaw area as a key motivation for its investment.

In a press release, chief executive officer Wendell P Weeks commented: “Corning is expanding its fibre manufacturing operations in Europe, as our customers accelerate investments in future-ready networks. From broadband to 5G to cloud computing, tomorrow’s networks all depend on optical fibre. This facility will ensure we can continue to efficiently serve our customers in Europe and beyond, during a time of record demand. We appreciate the support of state and local officials, and the dedication of our skilled workforce.”
