CBRE: Simoldes Plasticos’s production hall at Kvasiny is already roofed
The new investor is also looking for their first employees
CBRE, the world leader in real estate services, brokered the negotiations for Simoldes Plasticos, which invested in the new production hall in the urban part of Lipovka, in the immediate vicinity of Kvasiny. They are also seeking their first employees. The completed hall, which is already roofed, is expected to open at the last quarter of 2015.
„For Simoldes this is a strategic location because it supports our customers strategy and growth. We believe it is the right location not only to supply Skoda Auto plants but also to supply other OEM plants within Central and Eastern Europe. The adequate infrastructure and the availability of technical knowhow combined with Simoldes experience and expertise make us believe that this new facility will be capable to deliver quality and competitive products and services, recognised by our Customers,“ said Jaime Sa, CEO Simoldes Plasticos.
Simoldes new production hall will open in the first quarter of next year, and will supply automotive components to Volkswagen group, including Škoda and other OEM’s.
The automotive industry is still an important driver of demand for industrial halls. The Czech Republic is strategic not only due to the significant manufacturer Škoda Auto, but also for its high-quality workforce, excellent infrastructure, proximity to other automobile manufacturers and convenient location in Central Europe. That’s why the location we chose in Kvasiny is very attractive even for an automotive supplier Simoldes Plasticos.
“Panattoni Europe guaranteed that the construction will be delivered to the client, Simoldes Plasticos, by the end of 3rd Quarter, 2015. I can now say that this commitment will be successfully reached thanks to Simoldes Plasticos and Panattoni Europe project management team,” enhances Pavel Sovička, Managing Director Panattoni Europe for the Czech Republic and further adds, “that this can be proved by the fact that the first client´s technologies will be installed within few weeks’ time.“
The construction is now roofed with the last part that needs to be covered and then interior work in the building will commence. The total area of the hall will be 22,000 sq m. To get an idea of its size, 176 pillars will support the 1,000 t roof. 25 companies have worked on the hall with a total of 200 workers. The hall will be outfitted with 20 km of cables and 1 km of piping.
