Billionaire Kulczyk bids for Poland fertilizer firms

Poland's billionaire businessman, Jan Kulczyk, is in talks to acquire the country’s two largest fertilizer firms, a source at the ministry told ICIS news this week.

The entrepreneur, owner of Warsaw-based Kulczyk Holding and international investment house Kulczyk Investments has had behind-the-scenes talks with senior Polish treasury ministry officials, said the source.

The report says he is looking at acquiring Poland’s largest nitrogen fertilizer producer, Zaklady Azotowe Pulawy (ZAP), and the country’s largest nitrogen phosphorus potassium (NPK) fertilizer producer, Zaklady Chemiczne Police (ZChP).

A quick search shows that Kulczyk may be trying to build a large fertilizer manufacturing base. According to Ukranian News, he is also interested in taking part on the privatisation of the Odessa Portside Factory, a huge ammonia producer.

Kulczyk Investments already owns Poland's solvent producer, POCH, located at Gliwice.
