Among these, LPP – a clothing company – was awarded in as many as two categories: Best Exporter and Best Employer. In addition, the Gdańsk-based company was included in the list of 12 distinguished institutions that have shown the greatest commitment to helping Ukraine.
,,TOP 100 Pomerania” is the only breakdown of the largest companies in the region, which has been published by Dziennik Bałtycki every year for 25 years now. Yet again, LPP found itself among the distinguished Polish companies with the greatest significance for the Pomeranian economy. In this year’s edition of the competition, the Polish clothing manufacturer took first place in as many as two categories.
LPP was awarded a statuette in the category of Best Exporter 2021, an award to honour a company with the greatest revenue increase abroad in 2021 as compared to 2020. Despite the difficulties arising from the pandemic, the situation in Ukraine and the uneasy socio-economic situation, the company maintained profitability at a high level, and thanks to well-thought-out decisions managed to come away unscathed from the crisis situation.
At LPP, change is our middle name. Consistent growth, both in terms of sales volume and geographic reach, requires us to be flexible in adapting to uncertain and changing market conditions. Regardless, our ambition remains to stay in the game even in such difficult times and to offer our customers the highest level of services and products – comments Sławomir Ronkowski, director of internal communications and CSR, LPP.
The Gdańsk-based company also received the highest distinction in the category of Best Employer 2021. When selecting the winner in this case, the jury took into account the increase in employment figures compared to 2020. LPP was also included in the list of 12 institutions that showed the greatest commitment to helping Ukraine in Pomerania.

We offer good opportunities for professional development, which, combined with the competence and commitment of our employees, allows us to develop and promote Polish creativity through our brands, which today are already recognized in nearly 40 markets – emphasizes Sławomir Ronkowski.
