The factory initially constructed by Panattoni in 2018, spanning 16,000 sq m, has undergone a substantial expansion, augmenting its footprint by an additional 6,000 sq m. This expansion was purposefully undertaken to cater to the specialized technological requisites of the "FTS" (fluid transport systems) division, specifically focusing on fuel and compressed air hoses. Notably, this extension facilitated the integration of advanced technological equipment, paving the way for an automated hose assembly station and a state-of-the-art hose marking station within the newly created space. The formal handover of this upgraded facility occurred on July 14, 2022, coinciding with the execution of a 15-year lease agreement.
In combination, Panattoni's efforts have yielded a substantial operational expanse of nearly 40,000 sq m for Kongsberg in Poland. This comprehensive offering encompasses developments spanning both Brześć Kujawski and Koluszki locations.
Strategically situated, Kongsberg's plant enjoys a favorable location in close proximity to the A1 Motorway – a pivotal conduit seamlessly linking Poland's northern and southern borders. Positioned at a distance of approximately 80 km from the geographical center of the nation, this advantageous site further derives benefits from its inclusion within the Brześć Economic Zone, acknowledged as a key driver of the broader Kujawsko-Pomorskie region. The region's proactive investment policy, coupled with meticulous land preparation and a pool of skilled human capital, synergize effectively with the strategic location, collectively attracting global enterprises spanning diverse sectors. This appeal extends from logistics and manufacturing to apparel and chemicals. A testament to its vitality, the zone is subject to continuous enhancement, demonstrated by the introduction of new bus lines and the construction of cutting-edge technological thoroughfares. Consequently, the development of this region remains a foremost priority for local authorities, underscored by their resolute commitment to fostering growth and prosperity.
