Homemade Noodle Company Pol-Mak S.A. is one of the biggest producers of noodles in Mid-Eastern Poland. It was founded in 1995 as a one-person firm, but quickly developed into a company employing more than ninety people, which sells its products throughout Poland, and exports them to Ireland and Germany. Pol-Mak’s history is linked to the persona of Grzegorz Polak, who having graduated from Cracow’s AGH, worked for two years in a coalmine, then started his own hothouse farm, and after fifteen years founded Pol-Mak. His innovative ideas quickly improved the production process. Already in 1998, a new production facility has been built and set off, which further sped up the production process and diversified the noodles produced. With every year the production rate grew, and new workers were hired. At first, the company produced 300 kg of noodles daily, now it produces 15-16 tones.
