Galicja Tomaszek, a wholesaler of built-in home appliances and audio/video devices, has leased 11,100 sqm at a warehouse and industrial complex Panattoni Park Sosnowiec V. The tenant was represented in this transaction by Savills.
Galicja Tomaszek, owned by Ewa and Janusz Tomaszek, supplies home appliances and audio/video devices to Poland’s leading furniture chains and independent stores. Headquartered in Łańcut, the firm also has branches in Katowice, Poznań and Warsaw, employing more than 280 staff.
“We are currently in a phase of rapid growth and we need a new, high-quality warehouse. We have had our scheme tailored to our requirements to streamline our logistics processes,” said Dariusz Malarek, Head of the Galicja Tomaszek branch.
In addition to wholesaling, Galicja Tomaszek has also set up Poland’s first network of more than 340 independent, usually working as a family business, local stores with electronics and home appliances operating under the Max Elektro brand. It operates as a purchasing group in the form of a joint-stock company with shareholders being store owners. Galicja Tomaszek also is an organiser of franchise chain Max Kuchnie, a chain of around 300 stores offering kitchen furniture. The latest new brand, VERLE KUCHEN, envisages approx. 60 premium stores across Poland.
“Sosnowiec will be one of our client’s many warehouse locations. On its new space at Panattoni’s logistics park, Galicja Tomaszek will focus on order fulfilment in Upper Silesia. Its two previous warehouses will be combined to create a new facility for the tenant,” said Daniel Kempa, Senior Consultant, Industrial Agency, Savills.
