Panattoni is expanding Panattoni Park Gorzów, where it has recently secured another tenant. Global logistics operator Fiege has leased 11,000 sqm in the park, which the company will use for the logistics operations of a client from the production sector. Panattoni Park Gorzów should be completed in November this year when it will comprise almost 70,000 sqm. The entire park is to be BREEAM certified at the ‘Very Good’ level. 

The complex is currently being expanded by around 50,000 sqm to reach its final planned area of almost 70,000 sqm by November. Its location next to the S3 expressway is just an hour’s drive from the German border, which makes it attractive to firms with international operations. One such company is Fiege – a global logistics operator that has leased 11,000 sqm in a section of the park that is currently under development. At Panattoni Park Gorzów, the company will manage the logistics operations of one of its clients, which also has production facilities within the park. Due to the kinds of operations that are to take place, the developer will, among other measures, increase the fire load of one of the buildings leased to over 4,000 MJ/sqm.

German logistics operator Fiege was established 150 years ago. It now has operations in 14 countries and provides specialised logistics services for a wide range of industries, including fashion, health media, production, multichannel retail and international electronic sales. The company employs almost 20,000 people worldwide and operates on 3.3 million sqm of warehousing space. In Poland, the company has a workforce of 7,000 and runs logistics operations over an area of around 500,000 sqm for many well-known clients. 

On this latest project for the logistics operator, Katarzyna Iwańska the Leasing Manager of Panattoni comments: “Fiege, due to the global reach of its operations, has an excellent overview of different markets and what is available on them. When looking for a new centre, the company knew exactly what it required, in terms of quality, technology and sustainability. Panattoni is able to deliver of all this, and on top of that we could offer an excellent location just under an hour from the German border, which was the ideal fit for Fiege’s international operations.”

Panattoni Park Gorzów will eventually be expanded to 69,000 sqm. Almost 19,000 sqm of this has already been built. The companies that presently operate in the park include Omnipack and Logoplaste. More tenants will be joining them this November when the entire complex is to be ready for use. The entire park is being developed to achieve BREEAM ‘Very Good’ certification.
