Panattoni Europe will develop its third manufacturing facility for Ideal Automotive. This time, the factory will be built in Świdnica, at the Wałbrzych Special Economic Zone Invest-Park, and will take up approx. 27,400 sqm. Construction works will commence as early as this April, and are scheduled for completion in Q4 of this year. The lease was mediated by the advisory firm Colliers International.
The new project will be built on a 9.2-hectare site in Świdnica at Pogodna Street. The planned factory will be divided into functional zones – the industrial section (approx. 25,000 sqm), comprising the production hall and warehouse, two unloading tunnels and technical facilities, as well as the social and office section, which will take up in excess of 2,000 sqm. The investment is scheduled for launch in the coming April and its completion is anticipated in Q4 of this year. The estimated cost of the entire project declared by Ideal Automotive is €15.200.000 (including investment and costs related with lease agreement). The lease was signed for 12 years, and the transaction was mediated by advisers from Colliers International. The investment for car supplier will be the third to be delivered by Panattoni Europe to this client.
„A short while back, in 2017, we have built the company’s first factory in Poland, in Zielona Góra, and in 2014 – the manufacturing facility at Panattoni Park Stříbro in the Czech Republic. In Świdnica – like in the case of the previous developments – the modern manufacturing and warehousing hall is tailored to the requirements of Ideal Automotive,“ Marek Foryński, Managing Director of BTS Group at Panattoni Europe comments.
The facility will make interior finishing elements for passenger vehicles, including top shelves for trunks, loading floors and other textile interior components. The facility will also house technical rooms, including: a compressor room, refrigeration plant, and accumulator plant. Outside the building, there will be more than 420 car parking spaces and 10 spaces for large trucks.Panattoni Europe’s third project for Ideal Automotive.
„The execution of such a complex project will be enabled not only by Panattoni’s experience in building advanced manufacturing facilities, but also by the mutual relationship with the tenant developed in earlier projects,” adds Foryński.
“Ideal Automotive is one of Colliers regular Clients, and the factory in Świdnica is our second joint project in Poland. We started cooperation with searching for a suitable location, which would reduce the risks associated with the more and more demanding job market and fit into the company’s development strategy in Europe. Demanding schedule of the project required a reliable partner. Together with the Client we have chosen Panattoni, the developer with extensive experience in construction of production plants for the automotive sector, which successfully finalized the first project for Ideal Automotive in Zielona Góra,” comments Łukasz Pańczyk, Senior Associate, Industrial and Logistics Agency, Colliers International.
Ideal Automotive BTS will be erected in Lower Silesia, in the city of Świdnica, a short distance from the national road no 5, which links the city to the A4 motorway, and near the national road DK 35, which also intersects the A8 (motorway bypass of Wrocław).
The investment will enjoy a strategic location between Berlin and Prague, which guarantees easy access to the manufacturing plants of Daimler, Audi, BMW and Volkswagen.
