Pharmaceutical group Pelion SA selects 7R Park Łódź West I
According to JLL, Central Poland is one of the key warehouse markets in Poland. This is illustrated by the recent opening of Pelion pharmaceutical factory.
This is the second brand that belongs to the Pelion Group, the largest healthcare company in Poland, which operates in the 7R Park Łódź West I. The storage area for Medezin was designed in the BTS formula and was adapted to the specific needs of the pharmaceutical industry.
The developer has prepared over 3,700 sqm of warehouse and industrial area which is divided into a pharmaceutical factory and a wholesale warehouse. In addition, the company occupies 450 sqm of office space located near the production and storage area. The Medezin factory, which is on the outskirts of Łódź, will supply other companies of the Pelion Group with medical products. The Polish Pharmaceutical Group, DOZ pharmacy chain and Natura drugstores are the most well-known brands of the Pelion Pharmaceutical Group.
"Łódź is an extremely important location for us from a strategic point. In the building that we designed with the warehouse developer, 7R, we will launch a production line where secondary packaging of medicinal products will be manufactured. This type of production process requires specific restrictions in the location where the medicine is produced and stored. With our close cooperation with 7R, we have managed to create a space that meets our needs and allows us to develop our business in the center of Poland," says Paweł Pyć, Project Manager in Medezin.
In the building, there is the possibility to control the temperature from 15 to 25°C. Moreover, the developer has installed a refrigeration area for storing medicinal products in the temperature range of between 2 and 8°C. There is also an hourly exchange of air in the production area. What’s more, 7R has implemented for Medezine a special trans-shipment hub called "autodock", which allows for temperature compensation inside the warehouse during loading operations.
"Medezin is another pharmaceutical company along with Pharmalink, Cefea and Marrodent that has entrusted us with adapting an area in a 7R warehouse to rigorous standards for the production and storage of medicine. In the production section of the hall there is 12.5% of daylight as well as highly resistant, epoxy resin flooring. On the other hand, in the storage part of the building, we have set up an area for products requiring special precautions and conditions. We are very happy with 7R Park Łódź West I as it is an attractive location in terms of both production processes and distribution of medicine," adds Maciej Krawiecki, Head of Leasing at 7R.
Commercecon is the general contractor for the investment and AXI IMMO advised the tenant during lease negotiations.
7R Park Łódź West I is a modern warehouse park with a total area of 32,000 sqm, consisting of two A-class facilities, located on Inwestycyjna Street in Konstantynów Łódzki. The proximity of the A1 and A2 motorways provides excellent conditions for local, national and international transport. 7R Park Łódź West I’s location adjacent to the newly built S14 western bypass, guarantees access to infrastructure and is within easy reach of the city, which can also be an important issue for employees. Thanks to the implementation of the latest ecological solutions, which increase energy efficiency, both buildings included in 7R Park Łódź West I are BREEAM certified.
