Jost Chemical Announces Construction of a Manufacturing Site in Poland
ST. LOUIS, Missouri—The 4,600-square-meter building will be strategically located in Kościan, Poland. On 3.523 hectares of land, the plant can be expanded to add more production capacity in the future. Upon completion, the new facility will become a part of Jost Chemical’s integrated global network.
