This month, the new printing and logistics facility of midocean was officially opened. The company took up 40,500 sqm at Panattoni Park Ruda Śląska III, from where it will serve customers in almost all of Europe.

Panattoni delivered a total of approx. 2 million sqm of industrial space in Upper Silesia. Last week the developer has completed an investment for midocean – one of the leading suppliers in the European market of promotional items and textiles. The company will use the space at Panattoni Park Ruda Śląska III, and 36,300 sqm will be allocated to printing and warehouse processes. The new facility will consolidate the current midocean operations in the region and employ approximately 1,000 employees.

“Entrusting us with the construction of midocean's printing and logistics facility was proof of the great trust the company has placed in us. The technological facilities were prepared very efficiently, thanks to which it was possible to relocate the machine park in a way that did not interfere with the deliveries to the company's customers. This is another efficient relocation supported by Panattoni, which is becoming a guarantor of the continuity of processes. In addition, we provide a sustainable facility with numerous solutions for employees, in a perfect location, ensuring an efficient connection, among others with the Czech Republic, Slovakia or Germany," says Marek Dobrzycki, Managing Director at Panattoni.

“This new facility allows midocean to maintain its high service levels towards its customers. To keep delivering with the highest speed, we also installed many new cutting-edge technology printing machines that are custom built and tailored to our printing requirements. We will continue to develop in this area to ensure we can increase our capacities in line with the demands of the market. We are confident that this new location further strengthens us in continuity and future growth and contributes to our overall sustainable development goals,” adds  Stephen Gibson, Business Development Director, midocean.

As part of Panattoni Park Ruda Śląska III, midocean will benefit from, inter alia, a photovoltaic installation, a recuperation system, as well as electric car charging stations. In addition, a canteen, an outdoor garden and an illuminated shelter for bicycles and motorbikes were built for employees. The company also provides bus transport from nearby towns. The project is located close to the A1 (14 km) and A4 (5 km) motorways, which will allow for efficient domestic and international transport.
