Panattoni, the world's most active industrial real estate developer, completed and officially opened a BTS facility for Vita Group, an international polyurethane foam manufacturer, within Panattoni Park Żary on November 22. The developer plans to expand the park by an additional 7,000 square meters, with the new space being adapted to the specifics of the future tenant's operations.
Panattoni's BTS branch is rapidly expanding: in the CEE region, it already has over 100 customer-tailored facilities, including several technologically advanced manufacturing plants. In Poland alone, the developer has delivered nearly 4 million square meters in the BTS and BTO format – almost 30 per cent of the country's space. A particular region in this regard is the Lubuskie Voivodeship, where custom-tailored facilities account for about 60 per cent of the total space delivered by Panattoni – 375,000 square meters out of approximately 630,000 square meters. Now, another investment improved this fantastic result. On November 22, the developer officially opened a BTS facility within Panattoni Park Żary for Vita Group, an international polyurethane foam manufacturer, which will use 8,000 square meters of space. Representatives from Vita Group - Wiesław Pacyna, General Manager oraz CEO Vita Group Omar Hook - and the developer – Maciej Zawada, BTS Development Director Jacek Miedzialec, BTS Project Manager and Jakub Jankowiak, BTS Technical Business Development Senior Manager participated in the ceremony.
"The location of the Żary park turned out to be ideal for Vita Group's international operations. Currently, the Lubuskie Voivodeship is one of the most prospective locations not only in Poland but also in Europe, and European and global companies, which will be increasingly present here, need facilities tailored to their standards and processes. We believe that today's opening is an excellent foundation for further cooperation between Panattoni and Vita Group, especially since we tailor to the needs throughout Poland and Europe," summarized Maciej Zawada, BTS Development Director at Panattoni.
The next tenant will be able to take advantage of the huge potential of the park, as Panattoni plans to expand by 7,000 square meters in the BTS format. It will allow the facility to be adapted to manufacturing, logistics, or warehousing processes.
Panattoni Park Żary is located just 30 30-minute drive from the border with Germany, near the European E36 road, connecting the Lubuskie Voivodeship with Berlin. The journey to the Czech border takes two hours. The investment is being carried out in the Investment Zone of the Żary Municipality, making it even more attractive to the client.
"The excellent location is ideal for operations on a European scale. The potential is supported by incentives for business from local authorities. Cooperation with offices at the municipal, district, and city levels fills us with optimism before the expansion of Panattoni Park Żary, and is also an important asset in the search for additional tenants," says Marek Foryński, Managing Director at Panattoni.
In BTS, work is in full swing. Panattoni BTS is carrying out investments across Poland. In the last two months, the developer has started construction of facilities for Air Spiralo – a leading manufacturer of ventilation systems in Europe, and Maxcess - a global leader in innovative products and services for automated production line handling applications. Additionally, at the end of October in Rzeszów, the BTS Panattoni team officially opened a factory for Knorr-Bremse - a leading manufacturer of brake systems for rail and commercial vehicles. In the first half of the year, the branch completed the construction of the sixth facility for K-Flex in Uniejów, and the entire production and storage complex has now exceeded 100,000 square meters. In June, the company also finalized a facility for Action – an international chain of non-food discount stores – in Zakroczym with a surface area of 53,000 square meters, having delivered a total of over 110,000 square meters for the company.
Recently, the BTS department also completed a green factory for Danfoss, and the project made it to the finals of the prestigious MIPIM Awards accompanying the largest event in the real estate industry. This is a unique project in terms of energy savings and sustainable solutions. The construction of a factory for an international giant in the RTV and household appliances industry is also ongoing, and in the coming months, the BTS branch plans to carry out the construction of a production facility for a global manufacturer in the lighting industry.
