For several years now, Grupa Azoty has been working to change the face of the Polish chemical industry, which through this endeavour has become one of the most innovative branches of the European industrial sector. This is the effect of the Group's long-term strategy, with its keystone of new investment projects. Grupa Azoty is already implementing several large-scale projects, and has plans to spend more than PLN 7bn in capex on 68 projects by the end of 2020.
Named a national champion, the Company now employs almost 14 thousand staff, and its value − built for a number of years thanks to a stable shareholder base − has given it strategic importance
to the Polish economy. Grupa Azoty was also the CEE region's first company to be included, in 2015, in ICIS TOP 40 Power Players 2015, listing 40 most influential names in the global chemical industry, and in Boston Consulting Group's ranking table of ten chemical companies most attractive to investors. This success was repeated in 2016, when Grupa Azoty ranked 9th among the 189 chemical companies most attractive to investors, according to Boston Consulting Group.
