Town economy

Owing to natural resources, rich deposits of high quality coking coal, Knurów has developed chiefly mining industry, represented by KWK Knurów-Szczygłowice (Knurów-Szczygłowice Coalmine). This biggest plant in Knurów employ the total of 7000 people.

However for several years, Knurów has been trying to change into a centre having a diversified economy structure. There is also a well-developed network of financial services available among others in banks, credit agencies and the Silesian Co-operative Savings Credit Bank. One of the leading sectors of town economy is housing represented by two co-operatives, which own over 50% of housing resources.

The town development is favoured by the presence of private economic subjects on the market, this big ones, mostly in the branch of services, electronic and construction industry as well micro-enterprises.

 

The assets of the town include:
