Panattoni to build warehouses for electronics and electric vehicle battery systems. The developer has kick-started the construction of Panattoni Park Wrocław XI, situated south-west of the city centre, in Nowa Wieś Wrocławska. The complex, which will comprise 100,000 sqm of space, has already got its first tenant! It is Pantos Logistics – the undisputed leader in the Korean market and one of the largest logistics operators in the Asia-Pacific region. In pursuit of its strategy of consolidating the three branches near Wrocław, the company will ultimately lease as much as 72,000 sqm at Panattoni Park Wrocław XI. Phase 1, in which Pantos Logistics will take up 60,000 sqm, will feature a warehouse section of 57,500 sqm, and 2,500 sqm of office space. The key customers of the enterprise to be served at the park will be LG Chem – one of the world’s largest manufacturers of lithium-ion batteries, and LG Electrics – one of the leading global electronics manufacturers.
However, Pantos Logistics is not limiting itself exclusively to LG, and as Piotr Zienkiewicz, Logistics Managercommented: “The new Pantos Logistics warehouse at Panattoni Park Wrocław XI will enable us to increase the number of operations and our throughput will go up by about 30 per cent. After consolidating our existing facilities into one, in a strategic location, we are looking to achieving synergies and collaboration of our teams, which will enable us to enlist the cooperation of other entities based in and around Wrocław. We want to venture outside our current business scope, show our capabilities to other customers and reinforce our position in Wrocław’s logistics market.”
The choice of Wrocław as the site for its new logistics park guarantees that Panattoni Europe will be strategically poised with respect to three capital cities – Warsaw, Prague and Berlin. According to Marek Dobrzycki, Managing Director at Panattoni Europe: “The site of Panattoni Park Wrocław XI enjoys excellent road connections. The project lies right next to the “Pietrzykowice” junction on the A4 motorway – connecting Poland’s eastern and western borders, and the Wrocław Motorway Bypass A8 is only 4 km away. Lower Silesia also has the advantage of an ample labour pool. The voivodeship is inhabited by approx. 3 million people, with 600,000 in Wrocław alone, and 140,000 students in the city provide the potential for filling all the positions needed by the tenants of the logistics park.
Panattoni Park Wrocław XI will consist of two warehouse halls totalling 100,000 sqm. The architectural design has been adapted to occupier needs, both in terms of the technical specs and the individual arrangements of manufacturing, warehousing, office and staff space. The customers will have access to spacious service yards, as well as car parks and ground-level gates. The park is situated at ul. Relaksowa in Nowa Wieś Wrocławska, right next to the A4 motorway and a short distance from its junction with the A8 – “Wrocław Południe”.
