Ekol Poland will occupy 11,500 sqm in Panattoni Park Poznań VII as of July this year and another 1,000 sqm of office space as of December this year. The logistics operator will serve one of the leaders in the outdoor clothing industry – the British company Regatta, which has been on the market for nearly 40 years.
