Gomez S.A. has expanded its logistic and warehouse base in western Poland to 12,000 sqm at Panattoni Park Poznań IX. JLL experts advised Gomez in the process of negotiating the leasing conditions.
Gomez S.A., which offers premium fashion brands in its brick and mortar stores and online shop, is developing its distribution facilities in the western part of Poland. The company has decided to increase its warehouse space to 12,000 sqm, which will have the capacity to accommodate over 750,000 items. Gomez was represented in the negotiation process by experts from the international advisory firm, JLL.
Gomez is a premium fashion multibrand with brick-and-mortar shops and online sales of clothing, shoes, bags and accessories. Today, the Gomez portfolio consists of more than 150 top brands that are available in 12 European markets, including Germany and Italy.
“The decision to increase the warehouse space is a natural consequence of our expansion. We want our storage resources to match the scale of our operations. Only in this way will we be able to provide a comprehensive service for each market and ensure that our products will reach customers even faster,” says Michał Dobicki, CEO of Gomez.
The organisation of the Gomez warehouse, based on three key zones comprising reception, dispatch, returns and complaints, makes it possible to increase distribution capacity and ensure even more efficient handling of orders. In the future, the company plans to further develop its warehousing infrastructure and automate selected processes.
“We are maintaining the continuity of this concept while increasing our warehouse resources. We are committed to centralising all processes, which will allow us to prepare for rapid increases in order volumes during the most popular sales seasons of the year,” adds Michał Dobicki.
The Swadzim distribution centre also supplies Gomez’s traditional stores, located in Poznań and Warsaw.
Warehouses located near Poznan are a popular destination for e-commerce companies. This sector is currently the second most active in Europe with its share in the region’s total demand increasing from 12 percent to 23 percent in the last two years. At the same time, the Poznań region together with Upper Silesia has the largest supply in the warehouse sector.
“For the Gomez brand, the location was a key factor in the process of looking for new space. The warehouse’s location near the company’s headquarters in Suchy Las and its brick-and-mortar showroom in Poznan guarantees easy communication and an efficient supply chain. The distribution centre in Swadzim is a facility that is well known to the tenant due to previous cooperation, which started in 2019, and the decision to take on additional warehouse space will be invaluable for Gomez’s further expansion. We are pleased to have been able to support our client in this process,” says Ewa Foryś, Consultant at Industrial Agency, JLL.
