The construction of a production plant for Pilkington IGP at Panattoni Park Białystok is not the first joint project between these companies. In the years 2011-2015, the developer delivered 66,000 sqm of an innovative automotive glass factory for Pilkington Automotive Poland located in Chmielów near Tarnobrzeg. Three years later, the companies again joined forces in a fruitful cooperation, and on 15 May this year the modern production plant was officialy opened for use.
This time it is a factory making glass units and metal racks for glass. As part of this project, Pilkington IGP occupied over 10,000 square metres of space. - As part of this project, Pilkington IGP took up over 10,000 sqm, including 9,113 sqm of industrial space and 936 sqm of social and office space. The building contains 4 modern production lines, and this year a modern glass tempering furnace will be installed. The facility will provide jobs for more than 200 people.
“The choice of the park by Pilkington IGP was determined both by the developer's experience and its excellent location. Białystok is the most dynamically growing city in Podlasie, so building a modern production plant here is a great opportunity for us to develop dynamically and strengthen the company's position in the region,” said Krzysztof Granicki, Presidend of the Board and Managing Director of Architectural Glass Products in Poland and Processed Glass Products in Northern Europe at Pilkington IGP Sp. z o. o.
“The location in Białystok also provides excellent road connections. The park is located near the S8 road connecting Wrocław, Łódź, Warsaw and Białystok, while the nearby S19 road (via Carpatia) is going to bring together the cities in the east of Poland and connect the north of Europe with the south of the continent,” said Dorota Jagodzińska, Managing Director at Panattoni Europe.
Bialystok is located on the transport route running along the eastern border of the European Union - from Lithuania through Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania to Greece. In the future, this will enable the flow of goods between the Baltic States and the southern Europe.
Panattoni Park Białystok is the first logistics park close
to the capital city of Podlasie and the first Panattoni Europe project in this
region. As part of this project, the developer has created 40,000 sqm of
multi-tenant space, which can be adapted to the needs of clients from different
business sectors - from logistics to production. The Park consists of two
A-class warehouse buildings.
