Located less than 50km from one of its production facilities, the new warehouse will be used by Mueller Fabryka Świec to store finished products and intermediates.

“We are pleased that Goodman will be a partner in the continued development of our business. Our candles are sold to domestic and international stores, retail chains and wholesalers. The new warehouse space at Goodman Toruń Logistics Centre, which is close to our facility in Grudziądz, will support more balanced use of our production capacity and reduce the impact of seasonality on our production process.
