Panattoni has completed the development of a modern factory in Wronki for Samsung. With the new manufacturing and warehouse space, the company will considerably increase the production capacity of the already operational household appliance factory.
“The Samsung factory completion makes a perfect ending for 2023, which was dominated by the effects of nearshoring and the re-industrialisation that this entails. Around a third of the industrial space delivered in Poland over the last twelve months was for the use of manufacturing. The world’s leading companies appreciate Poland’s central location, which not only allows them to reach customers all across the continent but also gives them access to skilled labour and well-developed infrastructure,” commented Marek Dobrzycki, the Managing Director of Panattoni.
Panattoni developed the factory as a BTO project, indicating its significance to the company's business. A new production line has been set up in a 60,000m2 area to manufacture refrigerators that include both existing and new models.
“The opening of our new factory is an important step for our future, where innovation, efficiency and modern solutions will streamline operations and improve our production figures. By investing in a new factory, not only will we ensure a rise of as much as 40% in our finished goods production capacity but this will also raise the efficiency of the sub-lines themselves and improve our in-plant logistics. Operating automated guided vehicles (AGV) within the plant is definitely a step towards more efficient and safer internal logistics,” stated Olgierd Bałtaki, the legal representative and director of Samsung Electronics Poland Manufacturing sp. z o.o. based in Wronki.
The developer prepared the land, built internal roads, and ensured a 4.95 MW electrical connection for the new factory. The factory uses modern automation solutions and has reinforced flooring for a load-bearing capacity of up to 20 tons per m2. It was built to sustainable construction standards and will be certified under BREEAM for a rating of Excellent. The building has improved insulation, heat pumps, and green areas around it. Noise pollution is reduced through acoustic screening and reducing the power of the central ventilation unit.
