PointPark Poznań’s position as one of western Poland’s most strategically located sites for new manufacturing facilities has been strengthened with the agreement to construct a 11,252 sqm build-to-suit (BTS) production and warehouse facility for online furniture retailer Sofa.com.
Piotr Bzowski, P3 Poland’s Leasing and Development Director said: “Many factors come together at PointPark Poznań to make it a very interesting location for companies looking to establish a manufacturing facility. The park has approximately 88,000 sqm available space and is conveniently located on motorway and rail links to the rest of Poland and Western Europe.”
Sofa.com sells high-quality furniture such sofas, chairs and beds to on-line customers in Western Europe, Asia and the United States.
PointPark Poznań is located some 10km from the city of Poznań and close to the A2 highway, that since 2012 provides Warsaw with an unbroken motorway link to Berlin and Western Europe. The park has a total space of 194,569 sqm including BTS opportunities with valid construction permits for four buildings covering 88,000 sqm.
Rohan Blacker, Sofa.com’s Founder said: “We aim to supply customers with better furniture at prices better than what they can find in stores and for this we need to have the right production and distribution facilities. PointPark Poznań offers a very attractive combination of an available labour force with a location that allows easy transport to our largest markets.”
Piotr Bzowski concluded: “There is a shortage of logistics facilities available on the Poznań market, which is why we see more and more companies turning to BTS projects to meet their production and distribution needs.”
