Panattoni has started building a distribution centre for a manufacturer of sportswear and accessories. The BTS facility with an area of over 67 000 sqm is under construction in Czeladź, Upper Silesia. Completion of phase one is planned for H1 2021.

The project provides for the construction of a warehouse building totalling 67,009 sqm, of which 2,177 sqm will be dedicated to a two-storey office. The new warehouse will be used to store, sort and pick goods ordered by customers from Poland and Europe.

The facility in Czeladź will provide jobs for several hundred people. With their needs in mind, a leisure area of approx. 1,800 sqm has been designed. It will feature a multifunctional sports ground, which can be used for football, tennis, volleyball and basketball, two miniature golf courses, a ping-pong table and a barbecue area. Next to the complex, there will be an external car park with a bus stop and terminal, which will significantly facilitate getting to and from work.

Marek Dobrzycki, Managing Director from Panattoni comments: “The investment in Czeladź is an example of applying solutions which will not only significantly facilitate rapid growth in e-commerce, but also improve the comfort for those who work there. It reflects the changing face of industrial facilities – they are no longer ordinary big boxes, but rather logistics complexes with an elaborate array of staff amenities.”

The new Panattoni facility will be located in the strategic eastern part of Czeladź near the intersection of national roads no 94 (Wrocław-Krakow) and no 86 (Katowice-Łódź). The site is 12 km from the A4 motorway, and 15 km from the A1. The International Airport in Katowice Pyrzowice is just 21 km away.
