Cushman & Wakefield Slovakia has announced the successful sale & leaseback of Semecs's production facility in Vráble, Slovakia. The transaction involves a production hall with an area of nearly 9,000 sqm. The buyer is ZDR Investments, an investment real estate fund. This is already the second acquisition for the fund. The fund enables the general public to invest in industrial real estate intended for light manufacturing and logistics.

The production site has long been used by Semecs s.r.o., a major manufacturer of electrotechnical components. The Semecs company, a part of the international concern SERO EMS Group, has operated in Slovakia since 1996. The energy-neutral plant of Semecs in Vráble is one of the most modern in Slovakia.

"Sale & leaseback is an investment transaction type with significant potential in Slovakia. It allows companies to unlock capital tied up in real estate while retaining full use of the facility. For the buyer, it presents an investment opportunity with a stable, long-term tenant. We anticipate seeing this type of transaction become popular in the future." said Ján Miček, Senior Investment Analyst at Cushman & Wakefield Slovakia.

"Through our collaboration with Cushman & Wakefield, we have found an ideal partner in ZDR Investments who will be our stable landlord and help us concentrate on achieving our strategic goals," stated Ivan Polak, General Director at Semecs.

"The acquisition of Semecs' production facility in Vráble is a significant diversification step for our Industrial fund. This modern and energy-neutral facility meets our high standards for property quality and tenant creditworthiness," commented Ondřej Sychrovský, CEO at ZDR Investments.
