Gainesville recently welcomed distinguished foreign visitors. A delegation comprised of business leaders, scientists, artists, professors and the Polish Ambassador to the United States journeyed to Gainesville from Gainesville’s sister city, Rzeszow. The objective of their trip was to acquaint themselves with Gainesville to lay a foundation for potential future partnerships.
Notably, Polish aerospace company Ultratech is looking for the perfect place to open their first U.S. division office. Additionally, a Polish chemical manufacturer was among the delegation scouting Gainesville for opportunities. The synergies are strong for high tech companies, with the University of Florida being such a strong research producer with regards to science and technology. The excursion wasn’t all business, however. The delegation cheered on the Gators on Saturday at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium and participated in other local cultural activities.
