The economy of Brudzew Commune has for many years been based on the brown coal excavation. Until the present day Adamów S.A. PAK Brown Coal Mine has been the largest employer in the commune. The work in the mine including operation of complicated multi-bucket excavators accustomed the staff to perform responsible tasks.

At the territory of the Commune there are enterprises which have also achieved success in other trades. The most competitive enterprises operate in the sector of microbiology and veterinary medicine. The projects undertaken by them are unique on the regional, national and even European level. These comprise Vet-Lab Brudzew and ProBiotics Polska.

Vet-Lab – an innovative veterinary laboratory

Vet-Lab Brudzew company is one of the leaders of innovativeness in Greater Poland. It conducts advanced research projects in the scope of veterinary medicine. It specialises in diagnostics and monitoring of the health state of breeding animals. Vet-Lab is one of the three companies co-creating the consortium conducting innovative research projects on the creation of urinary bladders based on polymer fibres.

Vet-Lab company was recognised as the most innovative company in Greater Poland in 2008 and awarded with the prize of the Marshal of Greater Poland Province.

The founder of Vet-Lab Brudzew company, dr Piotr Kwieciński, holds a motto of  'animals + people = common health’.

ProBiotics Polska – national leader in the production and sales of probiotics

Probiotics are products containing micro-organisms which have a beneficial influence on human health and environment and substitute chemical substances. Probiotic mother cultures are produced in the modern probiotic plant in Bratuszyn owned by the company. It is the first such activity in Europe and the third one in the world! The plant itself is almost entirely energetically self-efficient. The company products are used, among others, in soaps, cleaning products for households, soil fertilising preparations and those protecting plants and animals against diseases (including chicken farms) as well as products which support human health and enrich human intestinal micro-flora. The Bratuszyn company establishes a nationwide network of regional plants and sales and training centres which popularise and sell probiotics.


The open-pit mine that has been operating for 50 years is just finishing its production. This gives a unique opportunity to introduce to the Commune new functions, including the spectacular development of tourism connecting education, leisure and emotions. The operation of the mine has caused changes to the physical and social landscape of the commune on a massive scale. An open-pit form of excavation has resulted in the creation of incredible enormous basins of the width ranging from several hundred metres to over 2 kilometres and the depth of up to 55 metres.

As a result of the completion of mining activities and flooding of the mine excavation, the Bogdałów and Janiszew water reservoirs has been created. Other much larger waterbodies are to be created in Koźmin, Głowy and Kwiatkowo. These reservoirs will create conditions for recreation, sunbathing and sailing. They will significantly raise the tourist and landscape attractiveness of the Brudzew Commune area.

Multi-year plans which are to create conditions for the sustainable development of degraded areas

The commune self-government has initiated the processes of revitalisation in post-mine areas.

Communal Revitalisation Programme

It will be prepared thanks to the subsidies granted by the Greater Poland Province and the Ministry of Development. In effect to this programme, simplified procedures of spatial planning as well as tax exemptions for investors may be used in post-mine areas.

Creation of the Social Cooperative

This will be a social economy enterprise whose activities will be oriented at the use of the achievements and heritage of the open-pit mine as a tourist attraction. The extent of its activity also includes the development of handicraft combining local art, culture and ecological thinking in the field of wooden products and cuisine.

The commencement of urban and architectural works in terms of the creation of the Discovery Centre

Indication of the venues for the implementation of basic functions required to support tourism.
