ProLogis, a leading global provider of distribution facilities, announced today it has leased 154,000 ft² (14,300 m²) of newly-developed distribution space during the third quarter to Geis Logistics, a full-service, global logistics company.
Geis Logistics will take the space in Building Two at ProLogis Park Ostrava, a logistics park located approximately 14 kilometers west of the Ostrava city center, a major administrative and manufacturing hub in eastern Czech Republic. The park is positioned between the D47 motorway and the city's ring road, approximately 20 kilometers from the Ostrava International Airport.
"The Moravian region of the Czech Republic is an important location for the Geis Group," states Dr. Johannes Sollner, Managing Director for Geis Holding. "Our new state-of-the-art facility in ProLogis Park Ostrava will serve both as a central warehouse for our operations in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, and a gateway into the Eastern European markets."
ProLogis Park Ostrava comprises two buildings for a combined total of 66,000 m² of warehouse and office space. Other ProLogis customers at ProLogis Park Ostrava include Richter + Frenzel and In Time Spedice.
"Due to its strategic location, access to a highly-qualified local labor force and good public transport connections, Ostrava is quickly becoming a popular location for logistics and light production companies," said Mario Sander, Market Officer for ProLogis in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. "We welcome Geis Logistics to the ProLogis network in Central and Eastern Europe, and look forward to working closely with the customer to ensure optimal building efficiency."
ProLogis' portfolio in the Czech Republic includes six distribution parks for a total of 605,000 m² of distribution space owned, managed or under development.
