Panattoni has officially launched its latest project for the e-commerce sector in Lower Silesia. At a ceremony held the 3rd December, the developer laid the cornerstone for the construction of a 35,000 sqm facility for FM Logistic at Panattoni Park Głogów. From these premises, the tenant will service B2C e-commerce for a leading pet store chain owned by Fressnapf Group, which operates in Poland under the international brand Maxi Zoo, carrying out orders for individual clients from Poland and Germany. Panattoni Park Głogów, which will eventually cover 20 ha, is to offer 110,000 sqm under one roof. The investment is to be BREEAM certified at the ‘Excellent’ level, allowing companies to significantly reduce their CO2 emissions and energy consumption.

Sure-fire success in Lower Silesia. Panattoni has so far delivered over 1.5 million sqm in Lower Silesia, but it is by no means slowing down. In October this year, the developer started the construction of Panattoni Park Głogów – with a target area of ​​110,000 sqm – and today held the cornerstone ceremony for the construction of a new facility for the park's first tenant, FM Logistic. The ceremony was attended by representatives of the local authorities, the developer and FM Logistic.

“Once again, it is clear that Panattoni’s space is highly appreciated by the e-commerce sector. Of the more than 12 million sqm we have delivered in Europe, over one-third is used for online sales. We are being chosen by regional and global leaders as well as representatives of specific industries, such as DIY and clothing. In this case, a logistics operator that will provide services to a pet store chain has placed its trust in us, which just confirms our versatility when it comes to ​​e-commerce,” comments Damian Kowalczyk, the Development Director of Panattoni. He also emphasises the importance of this new location: “Głogów provides confirmation of the ongoing potential of Lower Silesia. A month ago, the town where our latest investment is situated was ranked second in the Business-Friendly Local Authority category in the Lower Silesian Economic Business Stars Plebiscite 2021. The investment-friendly attitude of the local authorities enables the town to exploit its full potential. With the addition of Panattoni's modern and sustainable space, another town has become an attractive location for the leaders of several industries, such as FM Logistic.”

“The decision to choose Lower Silesia as the location of the warehouse followed extensive research into how to optimise the services provided by our customer, Maxi Zoo. We took into account such factors as the availability of employees and the possibility of efficient deliveries to the German market. Panattoni’s latest investment is ideal for such requirements,” claims Anna Galas, a Senior Business Development Director at FM Logistic, who adds: “We are also seeing increased interest and demand for such types of operations in our country, as well as excellent development opportunities here for our other clients.”
