Poland's successful big business?

Most of Poland's industrial and commercial assets (factories, media, breweries, banks, etc.) have been sold off to foreign capital, often at a steal due to behind-the-scenes finangling. Only a few native Polish ventures have made it. I have heard of Solaris coaches, Polsat and TVN television channels, Marcpol supermarkets, Optimus computers (run out of business by the authorities)...but not much more. O yes, the Kulczyk empire. Anyone know of other major business enterprises based mainly on Polish capital?

Many dzięks. How would one google it: Polish-owned assets or what?
BTW, the Tusk grang want to privatise (read: sell off to foreign interests) such induistrial pearls as PGNiG (gas & oil concern) and KGHM (copper mining & metalurgy).

So be it. State ownership of companies generates only corruption. As long as they pay polish taxes the owners can be Martians as well :-)

What makes you think if they would be Polish-owned they would be more efficient/honest ?
What is the difference if KGHM would still be state-owned?
