Leading developer of the Slovak industrial real estate market, Prologis, began construction of a new building in its logistics park in Nové Mesto nad Váhom (Trenčín Region) for freight company Raben Logistics Slovakia, the press release confirmed.
Scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2017, the facility will increase Raben’s total leased space within the park to 14,700 square metres, in comparison to the current 11,000 for operations serviced by trucks and vans.
The expansion is a strategic decision based on its mission to create a competitive advantage for its customers, not only via the location, but also the quality of services both at Prologis Park Nové Mesto nad Váhom and across the region, said Věnceslav Dobrynský, contract logistics manager at Raben Logistics Slovakia.
“We are continuously exploring new ways to optimise our operations and this new, customised facility is fully in line with Raben’s strategy,” said Dobrynský, as quoted by the press release.
Martin Baláž, director of development and leasing at Prologis Czech Republic and Slovakia, explained that as the nature of logistics continues to evolve, flexibility is becoming increasingly important to third-party providers looking to meet growing demand.
“We are committed to tailoring our facilities to meet our customers’ exact requirements and are pleased do so for our long-term customer, Raben,” Baláž said.
The logistics park in Nové Mesto nad Váhom, located about a hundred kilometres northeast of Bratislava, currently comprises two fully let facilities totalling more than 36,000 square metres of state-of-the-art distribution space. The company Prologis provides more than 545,000 square metres of logistics and industrial space in Slovakia, the press release stated.
