Locations closest to our customers’ end-users, that are easily accessible and which have the highest sustainability standards are in huge demand. A good example of this is Prologis Park Brno, where KAISER+KRAFT, Europe’s leading mail order B2B store for factory, warehouse and office equipment, has just decided to locate its new Central European hub.
To connect to its main markets of Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and Romania KAISER+KRAFT needed a new hub for the storage, transshipment and preparation of goods. The centrality of the Czech Republic meant that they could not only shorten delivery times to within 24 hours, but also reduce the environmental footprint of some of their Asian suppliers as well.
“Corporate social responsibility is very important to us,” explains Rolf Schiffel, Managing Director Supply Chain Management at KAISER+KRAFT. “It means a lot to us that our activities and engagement can be perceived positively, which is why we specifically searched for space that could go hand in hand with our ecological awareness and sustainability ideals.”
Our deep rooted emphasis on social and wellbeing solutions struck a chord with KAISER+KRAFT. Like all of our developments, Building 1, at Prologis Park Brno is governed by careful consideration of social and environmental responsibility. Key features of the 8,700 square meter facility include water heating through solar power, fast charge stations for electric vehicles, standard LED lighting, smart metering, onsite technical support and a dedicated Prologis property management team. The building has been accredited with a BREEAM “Very Good” rating.
Martin Balaz, vice president, country manager for Prologis Czech Republic and Slovakia, says: “. We are pleased to welcome KAISER+KRAFT to Prologis Park Brno, which has been designed around the belief that our customers and their employees deserve the best spaces and places to work in, and we continually strive to meet such aspirations.”
Prologis Park Brno, located 10 kilometers from the city limits of Brno and 120 kilometers from Vienna, consists of two modern buildings totaling 67,000 square meters, with more than 20,000 square meters available for immediate lease and with development potential for one more building totaling 23,300 square meters. The park’s advantageous location adjacent to the main D52 motorway that links Brno with Vienna makes it an ideal distribution hub for domestic and international logistics services.
