Airbus Helicopters has expanded its existing office in the Forum 76 building in Łódź by an additional 432 sqm and now occupies 1,235 sqm. Colliers International advised the tenant in the expansion and lease extension process.
Airbus Helicopters is the world’s largest helicopter manufacturers and part of the European aviation and defence Airbus Group. Airbus Helicopters’ Design and R&D centre has been operating in Łódź since 2015. The centre cooperates with Airbus Helicopters production plants in France and Germany.
Forum 76 is a modern, A-class office building with approximately 8,000 sqm of office space. The facility is located at the famous Marshal’s Crossing – the intersection of Piłsudskiego Ave., the main transport axis of the city connecting the city centre with the two largest districts Widzew and Retkinia, and Śmigłego-Rydza-Kopcińskiego Ave. Forum 76 is owned by Benson Elliot and Sharow Capital.
“The high standard of service, partner relations and flexibility regarding the changing needs of our clients are the pillars on which we build our business model. We are glad that the advantages that make Forum 76 stand out in the market have been appreciated and we wish Airbus Helicopters further successes in Poland,” says Michał Proński, senior manager at Sharow Capital.
“One of the factors that has helped Airbus Helicopters’ rapid development in Łódź is access to a large pool of highly qualified technicians and engineers – graduates of universities in Łódź, including the University of Technology. The best companies and international corporations that have R&D activities – like for instance Airbus Helicopters – take advantage of this potential,” said Marcin Włodarczyk, regional director of Colliers International in Łódź.
