Cheaper labour than in the UK is one advantage. Less skilled workforce available is one disadvantage.

Depending on the company, being in poland, it can distribute to other countires.
Cheaper production costs possibly
Cheaper labour
Cheaper raw materials possibly - England manufacturing sector in decline
Overheads possibly cheaper - rent etc

Disadvantages - Obvious hidden barriers, language, currency different laws etc
Implications to them if Poland join the EU or if they have already (not too sure on this?)
Will the cost to relocate outway the costs to transport the goods to UK?

Poland will join the EU in 2004. Until then goods produced in Poland will get import tax (tariffs) on goods that come into the UK and the EU.
