Panattoni Europe has completed the construction of another production facility. This time it is the first European all-terrain vehicles factory of Polaris Industries Inc.- a US manufacturer of snowmobiles, quads, motorcycles and electric NEVs. The facility was built in Opole, at the Wałbrzych Special Economic Zone Invest-Park, and features 33,000 sqm.
“This is the manufacturer’s first European factory of all-terrain vehicles which will make as many as 25,000 quads and small all-terrain vehicles per year to be delivered to Europe, Middle East and Russia. Due to the scale of the undertaking, about 350 jobs will be created, and the number may go up in the future,” said Boguslaw Dawiec, Plant Manager.
The production facility for Polaris Industries Inc. is a greenfield investment, which means that it was built in an area not previously used for industrial or service purposes. Polaris chose the location in the Wałbrzych Economic Zone Invest-Park in Opole at ul. Wspólna.
In turn, Panattoni Europe, as the developer of the whole investment, was responsible for acquiring the property in a tendering procedure, putting in place the rudimentary utility infrastructure, preparing and going through the building permit application procedure, as well designing the facility taking into account Polaris’ specific requirements and planned production profile.
