Spiżarnia, a distributor of Polish food to Western European countries, has chosen 7R Park Lublin to locate its new warehouse and offices. The company will occupy one of the five buildings at the planned logistics park. The facility for Spiżarnia, with an area of nearly 22,000 sqm, was developed in the BTS formula and houses three cold stores. The building will be completed in December 2021. During the lease process, Spiżarnia was supported by the consulting company Axi Immo.
The warehouse in the 7R Park Lublin complex, where Spiżarnia’s operations will be located, consists of nearly 19,600 sqm of warehouse space and office space measuring approximately 2,000 sqm. The 7R investment provides tenants with conditions specific to the food industry, including sprinklers in oil racks, a dedicated refrigeration system and additional pumped docks. The facility is scheduled for completion in late 2021.
“The food sector is a demanding industry that requires rigorous storage conditions based on the safety and reliability of the refrigeration and ventilation system, proper building construction and equipment, and the maintenance of sanitary and hygienic standards. Our main logistics center is located in Lublin. We also have five cross-dock warehouses in London, Manchester and Lincoln in England, Portadown in Northern Ireland and Zevenbergen in the Netherlands.7R,a company with experience and know-how in BTS construction, will provide us with comprehensive warehouse and office spaces that will be tailored to our needs,” – says Dariusz Jeleniewski, co-owner of Spiżarnia limited company, general partnership.
Food distribution is mainly determined by factors related to an efficient, sustainable, and uninterrupted cold chain. Here it is important to optimize the warehouse in terms of storage conditions and logistics operations.
“Lublin is a prospective warehouse market whose importance in the coming years will increase. The expanded construction of a section of the Via Carpathia pan-European route in this part of Poland allows clients to build a competitive advantage by securing space early enough to make optimal distribution facilities. In addition, Lublin fits into the client’s strategy, who has extensive logistics operations in most European markets, allowing him to transport goods quickly” – says Wojciech Waryś, Associate Partner, AXI IMMO.
“When investing in Lublin, we knew it was a promising market. The contract for the BTS facility with Spiżarnia was signed even before the construction of the logistics park began. This shows how much confidence the tenant has in us. It also shows how good the location is for this type of project. When planning the warehouse for Spiżarnia, we focused on the optimal management of the facility. For our client’s needs we prepared three cold stores, with different temperature ranges,”- comments Maciej Krawiecki, Head of Leasing at 7R.
The 7R Park Lublin logistics complex will consist of five buildings with a total area of approximately 110 000 sq m and will be situated in the industrial part of the city. Its location near the Lublin bypass means its well-served by road, an important prerequisite for the FMCG and TSL sectors, with the S12 and S19 express roads also close by. A railroad infrastructure is also being developed. Rail is one of the foundations of freight transport and allows companies to plan forwarding and transport operations throughout the country and beyond. The investment is certified BREEAM at Very Good level.
