Given the special emphasis placed by BSH on environmental protection and environment-friendly logistics solutions, the investment has its own railway siding, so that the majority of production earmarked for exports is transported by rail. That is why the developer has built a railway station inside the facility with a platform running the entire length of the building (590 m). Moreover, the building features a special ramp system, LED lighting, as well as additional skylights and facade windows, to maximise access to natural light.
The company has four factories in Poland – three in Łódź, making washing machines, dishwashers and clothes dryers under Bosch, Siemens, Gaggenau and Zelmer trandemarks, and one in Rogoźnica near Rzeszów, where small home appliances are made under the Zelmer brand. Two factories, which will make built-in ovens and fridges, are currently under development in Wrocław. The new logistics centre is used by the company to handle exports of all the products made in BSH factories in Poland, and also for the purposes of domestic distribution. The facility also processes the supplies of components for production to be used in BSH factories in Poland and abroad.
The facility stands right next to the A1 and is situated just 30 km away from the Łódź Północ junction, where the A1 and A2 motorways intersect. The perfect location in Central Poland with access to the junction of the European east-west and north-south routes, as well as within administrative city limits, will facilitate BSH’s domestic and international logistics, as well as making it fast and easy for employees to get to/from work.
