The industrial park at Košice Airport was bought from the Austrian Erste Bank by the company CTP in the autumn of last year with the aim of expanding its portfolio in the largest cities in the region. ctPark Košice consists of five industrial buildings with a leasable area of 57,000 m2. The project provides additional space for the construction of new buildings in the range of approximately 21,000 m2.
Ehlebracht has just shown interest in building a new hall. The construction of the new hall with an area of 8,916 m² is to start in November this year. It should move to new production halls at the end of 2021. “We decided to move our production to the industrial park near Košice, as we want to expand our portfolio in the field of plastic molding, related technologies and tool shops. We already have limited opportunities in our current space, which are not enough for us in terms of our medium-term plans and our development," said Stefan Hanke, CEO of Ehlebracht.
Along with the expansion of production, the number of employees will also increase. The company announced that it plans to gradually employ 230 -250 employees, which is an increase of 60-80 jobs compared to the present. Ehlebracht offers process-oriented complete solutions for technical and optical plastic parts, components and system solutions. The customers are OEMs and customers from the automotive and electrical industries.
"The industrial park in Košice has a strategic location. It is always a good choice for manufacturers of parts, components or other components. Last but not least, the City of Košice has quality universities that attract modern R&D centers, several of which have also found a home in ctPark Košice. I think that these factors, together with quality transport connections and infrastructure, decided to relocate our client's production in this case as well. We are glad that even in this situation in which we are, we see the growth of our clients' production, and thus the demand for modern industrial halls that already meet the new energy standards," said Stanislav Pagáč, CTP's regional director for Slovakia.
