Industrial & Warehouse

Dywidag Systems International has leased 24 000 sqm of production-social space in Panattoni Park Ruda Śląska II, site for the production of Post-Tensioning Systems and Stay Cable Systems. The tenant was represented by real estate advisory firm Cresa Poland.

Dywidag is an international construction company, founded in 1865. Dywidag Systems International sp. z o. o. (a limited liability company), is a part of Dywidag and has its registered seat in Chorzów in Upper Silesia. Dywidag Systems is the European leader in the production and supply of Post-Tensioning Systems and Geotechnical Solutions. The facility in Ruda Śląska will serve the production of Post-Tensioning Systems and Stay Cable Systems used in bridge construction or applied in the construction of parts for windfarms.

- Components for cable-stayed bridges and post-tensioning systems are flagship products for Dywidag around the world. We would like to launch production in Upper Silesia already this year, so we are in the midst of recruitment of specialists for individual positions. Ultimately, we plan to employ around 60 staff in our production facility. Our top priority is the health and safety of our employees, which is why we make every effort to ensure that the new production hall will satisfy the most stringent standards - comments Jacek Dolibóg, COO for the EMEA region for Dywidag Systems International.

Dywidag will occupy the entire building in Panattoni Park Ruda Śląska II, an area of 24 000 sqm The office-social space will represent 1400 sqm, with production taking up an area of 22 500 sqm. The company will also require a concrete storage area with an area of 4 000 sqm.

Panattoni Park Ruda Śląska II is comprised of two warehouse buildings with an area of 57 000 sqm enabling the flexible organisation of space into storage and office modules. The space of the facility can be dedicated to storage or light-industrial production. The technical features of the park include a “zero” gate and LED lighting.

- The search for the right production hall presented a challenge, not only because of the delivery time constraints but also because of the exceptional requirements on the depth of the hall. We are pleased to have found a location meeting these requirements, one which Dywidag will be able to relocate to this year, in accordance with our client’s strategy – says Jakub Kurek, Associate Director in Cresa Poland’s Industrial and Warehouse Department.

- Ruda Śląska has the advantage not only of its proximity to the current company headquarters, but also of being a business-friendly town with excellent transport facilities undergoing further modernisation as well as broad access to the employment market. Even a few years ago it was very difficult to find modern real estate in this region but today there are four industrial parks, and more are certainly on the way - adds Michał Kozar, Advisor and Technical Specialist in Cresa Poland’s Industrial and Warehouse Department.
