Prologis completed an 8,000 square meter build-to-suit (BTS) facility at Prologis Park Wroclaw V on schedule for RTP Company, a U.S.-based thermoplastics manufacturer. RTP Company is a current customer in the U.S., and Prologis’ proven ability to meet the company’s complex and specific needs led to the expansion of their business relationship in Poland.
“RTP Company’s decision to stay with Prologis for its Poland expansion move validates our belief that any long-standing, fruitful and mutually beneficial relationship must be built on the ability to meet the needs of the customer. In terms of the park itself, Prologis Park Wroclaw V has an optimal location in the region and the proposed plot had access to the necessary utilities and valid building permits, which made it possible to start development immediately and deliver on time,” says Ewa Zawadzka, vice president, head of land and development, Prologis Poland.
“RTP Company is excited to expand service to our customers in the European market through the addition of this facility in Poland. Finding a proven and reliable partner in this endeavour was extremely important. Given our productive and positive experience with Prologis in the U.S., the company was an obvious choice to help facilitate our move into Poland,” says Danny Miles, RTP Company’s vice president and managing director, Europe.
The new distribution and production facility, RTP Company’s first investment in Poland, is designed to further support the company’s customers in Europe. It features 11-meter clear heights and a 36-meter-wide docking area. The production area has extra natural light and is equipped with additional ventilation and drainage. The facility also has external office space and a laboratory with controlled temperature and humidity.
Prologis Park Wrocław V comprises seven facilities totalling 148,000 square meters. It is located in Nowa Wieś Wrocławska, 3 kilometers southwest of the Bielański Junction at the interchange of the A4 motorway (Berlin-Wrocław-Kraków-Ukraine) with the SB/E67 expressway, near the Wrocław motorway ring road. In addition to its excellent location, the park offers customers the ability to expand their logistics operations.
