Kutno lies on the intersection of two key east-west and north-south transport routes of national and international importance. It also contains one of the largest railway junctions in Poland. The town has a broad infrastructure of institutions supporting business activities. The local economic development is expected to be orientated towards food processing, transportation, food service and the hotel trade. The emphasis on fruit and vegetable processing stems from the fact that the area around Kutno has good fertile soil, and the unpolluted local environment provides good conditions for the production of health food.
In order to make good use of these advantages and attract new investors to the town, the Kutno Agro-Industrial Park (Kutnowski Park Agro-Przemysłowy, abbrev. KPAP) has been established. It covers an area of 370 ha, mostly provided with infrastructural systems.
There is the Kutno Sub-zone of Łódź Special Economic Zone SA operating on the area of 43.5 ha of the KPAP. It comprises four complexes: Odlewnicza (4.24 ha), Holenderska (4.56 ha), Wschodnia (34.73 ha).
The complexes are situated in the industrial quarter of Sklęczki, next to the international road E30 (Moscow-Warsaw-Berlin), a railway trunk-line E20 and a network of sidings. About 1.5 km from the special economic zone area the planned A1 motorway will run.
Even now businesses operating in the industrial quarter employ about two thousand people.
