Two buildings offering 60 000 m² of space, grant extensive opportunities mainly for manufacturing purposes. Filip Kozák, Head of Industrial Agency CBRE says: " After the past couple of difficult months, when activity in the market was fairly minimal, we can observe a gradual increase of re-interest from foreign investors in the Czech Republic."
Assa Abloy, the premier world manufacturer and supplier of complex solutions for door locking systems has expanded its warehouse area in Panattoni D5 Logistic Park by 4800 m². Václav Šmejkal, Production Manager from Assa Abloy comments: " In context of our production capacity growth, ASSA ABLOY Entrance systems decided to shift part of its production from the Western factories. This is both to increase the amount of currently available products and the implementation of completely new solutions. This change requires expansion in both, warehouse space and office space. During 2011 we should achieve a doubling of the number of employees compared to 2009 in both blue-collar workers and in administrative."
