The facility is being built in the BTO (Built To Own) formula and will be commissioned in around the middle of 2023.

Green energy will be used in the production process in the new factory - and photovoltaic panels will be installed in the building.
This is not Panattoni's first project for the Hager Group - the companies have been cooperating with each other for 7 years. In 2015, the developer built the Hager production plant in Sosnowiec, where 4 years later the company expanded by over 100 percent.
– Many years of cooperation and efficient implementation of the smaller projects have reassured Hager that Panattoni is the ideal partner for the construction of the production plant that will be crucial for company’s development in Poland. It will be another factory tailor-made by Panattoni in the country, which in the era of nearshoring is an important sign for other companies looking at investments in Poland. A partner with the right know-how and portfolio is waiting for them – Marek Dobrzycki, Managing Director, Panattoni
