You won’t buy Polish matches anymore. The last factory in Czechowice-Dziedzice disappears

This is the end of the last Polish match factory. After one hundred years of operation, the plant in Czechowice-Dziedzice will be closed. The decision to liquidate Zapałkownia was made during an extraordinary general meeting of shareholders, informs Gazeta Wyborcza.

“The decision was made due to the difficult economic situation of the plant caused by the decreasing demand for matches and the difficulties related to the Covid-19 epidemic,” the company said in a laconic statement.

Thus, the last Polish matches will disappear from the shelves. The factories in Gdańsk, Sianów, Bystrzyca and Częstochowa were closed earlier.
