At the beginning of Summer 2016, production and distribution complex owned by one of the largest non-alcoholic beverage producers Coca-Cola HBC Czech and Slovak republic, was added to the Slovak industrial market. The complex, which offers approximately 30,000 sqm of leasable area with ca. 35,000 sqm of adjacent land for further development was exclusively marketed by the Industrial Agency team in JLL Slovakia.
As of October 2017 the new owner is Priemyselnýareál Lúka s.r.o. The value of the transaction remains confidential.
Marian Pavelka, Public Affairs and Communications Manager at Coca-Cola HBC Czech and Slovak republic, said, “After our decision to conclude production activities in Slovakia, we are extremely pleased, that in relatively short time period we have signed a contract with new investor. I am convinced, that we have secured perspective future not only for this unique production and distribution complex, but also for the community living in the area. Our company remains active on the Slovak market with future investments and support of other divisions such as sale, logistics, distribution and other activities, that we currently have in Slovakia. We will continue to provide our best service, maintain the quality of our products, and bring innovations to the Slovak market.”
Samuel Šporka, Head of Industrial Agency in JLL Slovakia, added: ”The very important part for our team was to find an investor who will appreciate the modern commercial real estate as well as the rich supplies of underground spring water fitting its business strategy. I am very proud that we have accomplished all of these in one year and the plant in Lúka is coming back to life.“
”Modern industrial space which we have about 1.93 million sqm in Slovakia is the most active real estate sector in the last 2-3 years and remain very attractive. Out of seven investment transactions totaling €154 million that took place in the first half of 2017 in Slovakia, three contracts were signed within the industrial sector,“ adds Šporka.
