Prague-West attracts demand: Lindab expanding too


​PRAGUE, 04 MAY 2015 – Warehouse, commercial and production park Karlovarská Business Park is now fully leased. The park located close to the Prague Airport and the junction of R6, R1 and R7 will accommodate the expansion of Lindab – world’s leading manufacturer and distributor of products and system solutions for simplified construction and improved indoor climate. Lindab is moving a part of its warehouse capacities from its own warehouse nearby. The lease of 2,368 sqm of warehouse space was negotiated by the industrial agency of JLL. 

Member of the international Lindab group will join tenants such as Panalpina, Mercedes Evobus, Kettler LIFEsport, Fresenius Medical Care and Megadyne. That means the last existing free unit in the park has been leased. This new long-term lease agreement confirm the increasing attractiveness of high-quality warehouse space for rent in Prague-West. JLL has recently secured the expansion in Hostivice for another important tenant, logistic operator Damco. 

Karel Kleinmond, Lindab Czech Republic CEO, comments the transaction: “Prague-West represents a strategic location for our business. Lindab has been operating in its own premises with total size of 24,000 sqm of production, warehouse and office space in three halls in this location for 10 years so the most advantageous solution of our expansion plans was to move a part of our warehouse capacities into the neighbouring Karlovarská Business Park.”

Pavel Rufert, senior consultant, industrial agency, JLL, adds: “The successes and the growth of Lindab has brought the necessity for production and warehouse space expansion. Taking into account that Lindab has been present in Prague-West for a long time and JLL managed to identify Karlovarská Business Park as an opportunity to logically expand Lindab’s current operations. Successful Karlovarská Business Park has welcomed another strong and satisfied tenant.”
