Arpex has signed a lease for around 3,300 sq m of warehouse space in SEGRO Logistics Park Gliwice. Cushman & Wakefield, a global real estate consultancy firm, acted as an agent in the transaction.
Arpex Sp. z o.o., headquartered in Gliwice, is a leading company offering ornaments and decorative products. Founded in 1993 as a family business, it now has more than 100 employees. Through cooperation with suppliers from Europe, North America and the Far East, it supplies products to retailers and wholesalers across Poland. Arpex was the first company to have introduced decorative electrostatic films and licensed party accessories on the Polish market. It offers more than 5,000 products in twenty product line groups. Arpex is also expanding in the markets of the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Romania. It will move to its new warehouse facility in July 2015.
Danuta Śmieja, President of Arpex Sp. z o.o., said: “SEGRO Logistics Park Gliwice is the best choice for Arpex, which is a fast-growing company focused on innovation and high quality. It is located close to our headquarters, offers great access and first-rate warehouse space, which will certainly improve our working environment conditions and efficiency. The relocation of one of our warehouses is a major part of our long-term growth strategy.”
SEGRO Logistics Park Gliwice offers modern space for logistics operators and light industry. When completed, it will provide around 200,000 sq m of space, which can be designed and developed on a built-to-suit basis to meet strict technical requirements of individual occupiers. SEGRO Logistics Park Gliwice covers an area of 48 hectares in a strategic location in the immediate vicinity of the A4 motorway, linking Krakow and Wrocław with Poland’s western border, and within 15 kilometres from the A1 and A4 interchange. The scheme also benefits from the proximity of the Gliwice Special Economic Zone.
Magdalena Szulc, Director of SEGRO for Central Europe, said: “We are delighted to welcome Arpex in its new location that will certainly help drive its growth forward. Upper Silesia is a mature and stable market providing an excellent environment for companies operating in this region. Its key advantages include good transport infrastructure, access to skilled labour, special economic zones and the proactive approach of local authorities.”
Wojciech Dachniewski, Senior Negotiator, Industrial Department of Cushman & Wakefield, said: “SEGRO Logistics Park Gliwice is a perfect location for companies looking for modern warehouse space with offices and staff facilities. We are pleased that Arpex has decided to move its warehouse for decorations and ornaments to this logistics centre.”
