STALOWA WOLA, Poland, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- Malgorzata Bielica has been working at Liugong Dressta Machinery for 35 years as a technical expert. Although it has only been five years since the Chinese company invested in Poland, many local employees served at the Chinese enterprise.

In the company located in the city of Stalowa Wola, southeastern Poland, Malgorzata takes out old yellowish photos to explain why Liugong Dressta has a special meaning for her.

Her father also used to work for HSW (Huta Stalowa Wola or Steel Will Ironworks), a company preceding Liugong Dressta, as an engineer in civil engineering machinery division for more than 50 years.

However, not only could they continue to work there, the work content and treatment of employees changed for the better. Liugong's work practices gained approval from many old-time employees, who were able to continue to work peacefully without any adaptation period.

Malgorzata's daughter Katarzyna commenced work at the Department of Health and Safety in the company. Three years ago, after graduating from university, Katarzyna chose to return to her parents' and grandfather's workplace and became a member of Liugong.

""It's great to work together with parents. When we get back home, and we often talk about work, and sometimes even argue! I've learned a lot here and have met Chinese colleagues,"" she says.

According to the data provided by Liugong Dressta, the company has provided more than 1,200 job opportunities in the region, with a total of more than 230 million zloty (about 66 million U.S. dollars) of various accumulated taxes and fees contribution to the country between years 2012 and 2016.

Jacek Krzykwa, director of Legal and Public Affairs Department of Liugong Dressta, says Liugong has a good relationship with the local authorities.
