Alza expands warehouses with JLL


​Prague, 4 September 2014 – The largest electronic retailer and e-commerce pioneer in the Czech Republic Alza.cz will open a new 12,681 sq. m. warehouse in September 2014. Alza.cz is expanding to a new location at the D8 motorway north of Prague, Prologis Park Prague-Úžice. The transaction was negotiated by the Industrial Agency of the real estate advisory company JLL.

Rudolf Žůrek, Logistics Manager of Alza.cz comments the lease agreement: “Having opened our new warehouse in Úžice, we can better meet our need for warehouse space expansion which has been driven by ever-increasing stock. This will help us continue widening our product portfolio in order to guarantee quick and effective delivery to shops and customers. The premises in Prologis Park Prague-Úžice perfectly suited our needs and requirements for technical parameters, price and flexibility of an A-class warehouse. JLL provided great support in this transaction, including a detailed and comprehensive comparison of all the market options as a basis for our decision.”


Martin Polák, Senior Vice President of Prologis, adds: “We are pleased that a prominent company such as Alza.cz decided to connect its growth with our logistics park Prologis Park Prague-Úžice. We believe that attractive lease conditions will help Alza.cz in their success and further expansion.”


Pavel Rufert, Consultant at JLL Industrial Agency, concludes: „Currently, the demand for units larger than 10,000 sq.m. is very high, so we are delighted that we were successful in finding a number of suitable options in Greater Prague.
