GARBE signs 18,000 sqm lease with GPV at GARBE Green Park Piešťany
GARBE has signed a lease agreement comprising 18,000 sqm with GPV, a global electronics manufacturing services provider. GPV will occupy the entire building. The building is currently under construction and will be finished this month. Adjustments related to the customer’s operation will be completed by the end of the year. This green Park will be fully let and developed.

Manufacturing processes include SMT, THT, wave- and selective soldering, coating of PCBAs, assembly and testing, and packaging and shipping processes.

Martin Stratov, Business Development Director GARBE for Czech Republic and Slovakia, commented on the lease agreement: “In three years, we managed to find and acquire the plot, propose a unique green project, obtain all necessary permissions for our innovative solutions, develop it and fully let the space. From the beginning, implementing sustainable solutions has received very positive feedback and high customer demand. We would like to continue with similar steps and ideas to make our properties more attractive for tenants as well as better for the environment.
