The BSH factory in Łódź has taken a place at the centre of the company’s logistics hub. By constructing two roofed and walled passageways, 58 metres long each, Panattoni Europe linked it up with the 79,000-square-metre BSH Logistics Centre. The latter, which has its own railway siding, finds itself at the Central European Logistics Hub – the largest logistics complex in Europe. The tunnels connecting it with the factory allow for an uninterrupted flow of materials between the facilities, and facilitate the logistics of finished products from the factory to their destinations. The HUB complex also includes a 30,000-square-metre Panattoni Appliance Park. It was developed exclusively for the needs of the BSH dishwasher factory. The park provides a base for manufacturers and subcontractors, whose transport operations are facilitated by the road to the BSH factory created by Panattoni.
The BSH dishwasher factory in Łódź gives jobs to over 1500 people, who makes 3 million appliances a year. The products made at the plant include slim-line 45 cm dishwashers, which were not manufactured in Poland to date, and also appliances featuring the Home Connect function – BSH’s own solution based on the Internet of Things. It provides for enhanced functionality of devices thanks to smartphone and tablet applications.
