On September 9, 2021, Panattoni announced it has completed a 40,000-square-metre factory in the Polish City of Kalisz for Leviat.
According to the developer, the investment replaces the company’s existing plant in the central Poland city. As a result, it will increase its production capacity and will be able expand its activities. The project has been built in Kalisz, just 5 km from the firm’s existing factory in Nowe Skalmierzyce. “The short distance to the new larger facility will allow the firm to continue to employ the services of its qualified team of 350 professionals, while leaving open the option of further expansion. At the same time, Leviat will be able to increase its production capacity and, to a greater extent, use the potential of its existing tech and equipment to ensure that the company continues to grow,” a Panattoni press statement said.
Leviat is a global provider of solutions for the industrial and construction sectors, which operates in 60 locations around the world. In its new facility, the company will manufacture a range of fasteners for the construction industry.
“The excellent cooperation and mutual understanding we have had with Leviat has allowed us to not only deliver a facility that meets its requirements, but also to complete the project on time to ensure the continuity of its production,” said Panattoni BTS Managing Director Marek Forynski. “This cooperation allowed us the efficiency we needed to finish the project on time, despite all the pandemic-related restrictions.”
“The choice of this location was no accident,” added Leviat Managing Director Mariusz Mucha. “It allowed our current team of around 350 specialists to be employed in the new factory – and we very keen on this happening from the outset. Kalisz is also the second largest city in the Wielkopolska province, which in recent years has also become an important and dynamic academic centre with an excellent labour market. Thanks to all this we have been able to achieve our main goal – increasing our production capacity and, if necessary, taking on more people.”
