Fiege and GTX Hanex Plastics Appreciate Prologis Park Dąbrowa

WARSAW (9 May 2016) – Prologis, Inc., the global leader in logistics real estate, today announced that it has extended two leasing agreements for 29,000 square metres at Prologis Park Dąbrowa.

The transactions include:

  • a 24,272 square metre renewal with Fiege, a leading provider of logistics services
  • a 2,735 square metre renewal and a 1,907 square metre expansion with GTX Hanex Plastics, a leader in the Polish packaging market. The transaction was facilitated by Cushman & Wakefield.


"Both renewals and GTX Hanex Plastic’s expansion at Prologis Park Dąbrowa demonstrate how well we understand the needs of our customers and how we are able to meet their expectations. The high quality of our services leads to long-term relationships such as these," said Piotr Brycki, leasing manager, Prologis Poland.

"Our partnership with Prologis has a European dimension and already includes five parks. We are very satisfied with their service, which is why we decided to renew our lease at Dąbrowa Górnicza, where we provide logistics services for 3M," said Krzysztof Kuczborski,  Operations Director Fiege.. "An excellent location on the express road S1 and proximity to the A4 motorway gives the Central European distribution park of 3M a great competitive advantage."

"The decision to renew and expand our lease agreement was strongly influenced by the proximity of our factory as well as by the tailormade solutions proposed by Prologis. The electrical system installed in our unit has been adapted to our increased demand for energy consumption so that we can grow our business even more effectively," said Marcin Pachalski, Operations Director GTX Hanex Plastics.

"Thanks to the excellent location and the scale of Prologis’ complex, as well as the attractive conditions offered by Prologis, we were able to offer a solution that would allow GTX Hanex to engage in production activity," said Wojciech Dachniewski, Senior Negotiator in the industrial department of Cushman & Wakefield.
