The company will lease the first completed warehouse of the new part of CTPark Košice to a provider of complex logistics services - an existing client of CTP, which is expanding its operations in Slovakia. The new warehouse with an area of 4,000 m2 will be built on the principles of long-term sustainability and efficient operation with the aim of achieving BREEAM Excellent certification.
“Around two-thirds of all new CTP leases are with existing clients. It is therefore crucial for us to be a good partner for our clients and to look for opportunities for further cooperation. This is also the case with the new construction in CTPark Košice, where the first tenant of the hall in the new part of the park is expanding its operations from our other existing location in Slovakia. This new logistics space takes into account the needs of our clients and meets their operational requirements without compromise. It has, for example, an adapted internal grid of columns, an increased number of loading ramps or larger external paved areas for truck parking," said Ján Rakovský, Senior Business Developer CTP.
The second warehouse represents a turnkey solution, with an area of more than 26,000 m2, for a company from the automotive sector.
The new part of CTPark Košice will be a class A industrial park with premises suitable for logistics, distribution and light industry. The park is located in the center of the region connecting Hungary, Poland and Ukraine and thus offers a strategically advantageous location. The proximity of the park to the Košice international airport and its proximity to the D1 highway ensures trouble-free access not only within Slovakia, but also to neighboring markets. At the same time, Košice provides access to a highly qualified and competitive workforce.
CTPark Košice currently consists of six industrial buildings with a leasable area of more than 79,000 m2, in which companies such as DPD, Ceva Logistics, U-Shin, Howe, Hi-Technology Moldings and Ehlebracht operate.
"The area around Košice has great potential, which is further fueled by the investment of the automobile company VOLVO. We therefore expect significant economic growth in the near future, also thanks to subcontractors moving to the east of Slovakia," explains Ján Rakovský.
Eastern Slovakia is one of the locations where CTP invested in the speculative purchase of land a few years ago. Thanks to this, it can now respond quickly enough to the growing demand for Class A industrial real estate, driven by a combination of factors such as nearshoring, which leads companies to move production closer to end customers, or friendshoring, the essence of which is the relocation of companies to a geopolitical environment with similar values and business conditions. The company CTP owns and operates a total of three parks in the east of Slovakia - CTPark Košice, CTPark Prešov North and CTPark Prešov South.
CTP is the market leader in the construction of industrial and logistics real estate in Slovakia with a gross leasable area of 803,000 m2 in 14 parks.
