MDC2 - a developer of sustainable warehouse and logistics space operating on the Polish market, together with an investor - Invesco Real Estate, has concluded a lease agreement with AFL, which has taken 10,784 sq. m. at MDC2 Park Gliwice.

AFL is an international company providing comprehensive optical fiber network infrastructure solutions for the service provider, hyperscale, energy, enterprise and industrial sector.

"AFL's mission is to connect our customers worldwide with innovative technologies, exceptional products and high-quality services. The landlord's ESG policy is very important to us. We chose MDC2 Park Gliwice because it uses the environmentally sustainable solutions to ensure low carbon and energy efficient operations. The park's location in the immediate vicinity of the A4 and A1 motorways, access to a skilled workforce and the support of the Katowice Special Economic Zone also contributed to the choice of the location," says Daniel Rose, Managing Director – Connectivity, EMEA, - AFL.

MDC2's ESG strategy, which underpins the company's growth, is guided by its motto "Building for Good", according to which it builds warehouse parks for good for a sustainable future for tenants, investors, local communities, the environment and the industry as a whole.

"We welcome AFL to Poland, to the prime location of MDC2 Park Gliwice, in the belief that the global IT leader's market success will be seamlessly transferred to Poland," said Katarzyna Dudzik, Development Director, MDC2.
MDC2 is committed to modern and environmentally friendly solutions. The focus is placed on adapting the roofs for the installation of photovoltaic panels.

Tenants will be guaranteed a system for monitoring their energy consumption. The developer has also provided charging points for electric vehicles and bicycle sheds. A rainwater retention system will also be installed. As part of the internal policy, 95% of the building materials are expected to be recyclable.

MDC2 Park Gliwice, which was completed in autumn 2023, comprises three warehouse buildings with a total area of 59,000 sq. m. The logistics centre is located at the junction of two motorways: A4 and A1.
