PointPark Properties (P3), the specialist investor, developer and asset manager of warehouse properties, has started construction of a 14,660 sqm warehousing and distribution facility at its PointPark Bratislava logistics park. Donaldson Filtration Solutions will use 5,360 sqm of the unit to supply customers in Central Europe and Russia, 2,900 sqm is reserved for another logistics provider while the remaining 6,400 sqm is being speculatively constructed for future clients.
Peter Jánoši, P3 Country Head Slovakia said: “PointPark Bratislava sits directly on a network of highways that links Slovakia to Austria, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Southern Poland and eastwards to Russia. Almost the whole of Europe, including western Russia, is within 24 hours’ drive of the park, making it ideal for companies such as Donaldson that need to reach customers across the region”.
Donaldson is a leading worldwide provider of filtration systems and replacement parts. The company will use the Bratislava facility to distribute products to its aftermarket distributors and OEM customers in Central, East and South East Europe, including Russia. Construction of the unit began in mid-March and delivery is expected by the end of the summer.
Jan Peeters, European Distribution Manager Donaldson said: “We are adding distribution capacity in the region to better support the growing customer demand for Donaldson filters. Easy access to these customers, as well as ease of doing business, were key factors in choosing the site of our new distribution facility. PointPark Bratislava provides us with both.”
PointPark Bratislava is located in Lozorno, 15km north of the Slovak capital on the D2 highway to Brno, and close to the city’s bypass in the direction of Vienna and Budapest. It lies close to the so-called ‘Golden Logistics Triangle’ of Bratislava, Vienna and Győr. The park currently has five warehousing units, with a total floor area of 120,591 sqm. When the new facility is completed the park will have 58,000 sqm space available for future BTS projects.
Clients at PointPark Bratislava include Schnellecke Logistics, Möbelix, Whirlpool, Ingram Micro, IHLE, GBM Europe and Panasonic.
Peter Jánoši concluded: “The rapid development of Slovakia’s logistics sector in the last few years has led to a tightening in the supply of quality, well located, distribution facilities in the country. Vacancy rates here are very low. P3 has a land bank at PointPark Bratislava with building permits in place that allows us to move quickly to implement BTS projects that meet the logistics needs of new customers.”
