Organisational changes at PETRALANA S.A. | 27.06.2023
By decision of the Supervisory Board of PETRALANA S.A., on June 20, 2023, a change in the position of the Chairman of the Board has been implemented.
The to-date Vice President of the Board, Stanislaw Churas, took charge as the interim Chairman of the Boards, until the procedure of electing a new Chairman is accomplished. He superceeded Radosław Tumielewicz, who in turn took up the position of Managing Director of KOKSOWNIA BYTOM Sp. z o.o. (Ltd.). Both companies have been operating within the ŚLĄSKI HOLDING PRZEMYSŁOWY S.A. (JSC).PETRALANA is a 100 per cent privately-owned Polish manufacturer of mineral stone wool. The Factory was built in 2015 and it produces yearly 44,0 k MT of products classified within the groups, depending on their application: „Petralight”, „Petravent”, „Petrafas”, „Petraroof”, „Petratop”, „Petralamela” and „Petrapanel”. The half of the output is being sold to the demanding foreign markets. The Factory’s staff totals nearly 180 workers.
From PETRALANA to KOKSOWNIA BYTOM
As of 2015 and until recently, Radosław Tumielewicz was the Chairman of the Board of PETRALANA, now being appointed Managing Director of KOKSOWNIA BYTOM, thus increasing his involvement in the supervision and implementation of the Coking Plant's new investments.
Regardless, Radosław Tumielewicz remains within the structures of PETRALANA as Chief Operating Officer, supporting the Company in both – production and commercial activities, as well as taking an active part in the development of the Company's strategy.
A unique industrial symbiosis
PETRALANA and KOKSOWNIA BYTOM have been operating and cooperating in the frame of ŚLĄSKI HOLDING PRZEMYSŁOWY. The plants share a unique industrial symbiosis: the stone wool production line is fuelled by coke oven gas, which is a waste product from the coke production process. This is the only solution of this kind in Europe.
