The modern production plant with almost 15,000 m2 of production, storage and office space is the second completed transaction of the third Arete fund in Slovakia this year, with the value of the transaction exceeding 11 million euros.
"With the Nanogate Slovakia production plant in Vrábly, West Slovakia, 20 kilometers from Nitra, our third fund is gaining a long-term and stable tenant who belongs to the top in its field. Nanogate provides a complete plastic injection solution. Its customers are companies from the electronics, automotive and aerospace industries, as well as companies from the field of medical and packaging technology. Since this year, Nanogate's European production plants have belonged to the American Techniplas group. In addition to an excellent international rating, the production plant in Vrábly gained access to the top know-how and new global markets of the parent company. The tenant's intentions in the locality are long-term, as evidenced by the prepared investments in technologies in the order of millions of euros. The acquisition of the production plant took place in a sale-and-leaseback structure, and we would like to appreciate the very constructive and open actions of the representatives of Nanogate, "said Lubor Svoboda, co-founder of the Arete Group.
Igor Mlynarčík, director and managing director of Nanogate Slovakia, adds: “The Arete Group has been able to offer us a package of services that will enable us to focus on our core business in the future and provide customers with better services and products. At the same time, we are gaining a strong and professional partner in the field of real estate, which will ensure greater user comfort and a professional approach to solving open points. The process of the whole transaction and the time course represented a great challenge, which was realized thanks to the very pragmatic approach of the teams of both companies, a high degree of professionalism and a proactive approach. We are already looking forward to cooperating on future projects. "
"We are pleased to welcome Nanogate Slovakia to our portfolio of premium tenants. From the perspective of the entire portfolio of our third fund, we are acquiring a quality tenant who, with its business focus and business profile, perfectly contributes to the fulfillment of our diversified real estate portfolio strategy. We have a very strong perception that, in addition to tenants from the logistics and e-commerce segments, it is necessary to stabilize the portfolio through long-term leases, especially with manufacturing companies. In line with our business strategy, industrial real estate in Slovakia will represent a significant part of our portfolio for a long time. We are therefore very pleased that we have managed to complete the transaction later this year. From the point of view of the long-term sustainability of the entire project, we plan the gradual introduction of renewable energy sources and BREEAM certification will be a matter of course. We already consider these activities to be the standard for building industrial portfolios today, "concludes Robert Ides, the second co-founder of the Arete Group.
