FB Radom Facility: Loan-Financing of Modernization

The FB Radom firearms manufacturing facility is to receive more than PLN 90 million, to modernize the factory. The company has signed a loan agreement with the Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego.

According to the information released by the Łucznik Radom Arms Factory, the agreement has been concluded by the Parties on Wednesday, 9th August 2017, at the BGK’s seat in Warsaw. The total amount of the loan is PLN 81 million, whereas the whole investment sum would be as high as PLN 90 million. 9 million zlotys is the amount defining the Fabryka Broni’s (Łucznik Radom Arms Factory) own contribution to the process. The term of the loan is going to last until the end of the year 2021.

The goal of the investment, as the company representatives stress, is to expand the Fabryka Broni facility’s production capabilities, to make it possible to manufacture more weapons, quantitatively, than now. The investment is to provide the Radom-based entity with an ability to attain proper production capacity which would make it possible to meet the needs defined by the Polish Army, uniformed services and to cover the export sales area.

The Radom-based FB Radom facility did not have sufficient funds at its disposal, in order to implement the modernization plan within the desired scope. Thanks to the loan pledged by the PGZ S.A., FB Radom is going to reach even higher level, technology-wise. The modern machinery inventory shall be viewed as the future of the facility.
