InfoGroup is about to start innovative BTS-type industrial and logistics property developments in North Hungary in the near future. The company group will build a hall of 21,500 square metres with the option of expansion by 50,000 square metres in Miskolc and a hall of 18,000 square metres with the option of expansion of 18,000 square metres in Tiszaújváros, fully tailored according to the tenants’ demands, featuring flexible and effective design of space.
The future tenant of InfoGroup’s new investment in Miskolc will be a German automotive company, whose new warehouse hall, under construction on an area of 15 hectares, will be completed by late December 2017. In Tiszaújváros, InfoGroup will inaugurate the new warehouse hall, built on an area of 9 hectares, in the second quarter of 2018; this building will be occupied by an international electronics company.
BTS cooperation makes it possible for the partners to select the optimal location and the facilities are then constructed exactly in accordance with the users’ demands so it is possible to increase the functionality of the completed buildings and the efficiency of the work processes performed in them. “We satisfy tenant expectations of global companies both in Miskolc and in Tiszaújváros. What is more, we will also create new workplaces through the developments in a region that has an excellent road network but which is under-developed regarding logistics properties,” said Ádám Székely, Managing Director of InfoGroup.
As for the location, both developments boast with outstanding features as there are several international transportation routes running nearby, such as the Pan-European transport corridor no, 5, as well as the roads and railway lines of the Trans-European Transport Network (TENT-T, TINA).
The developments of InfoGroup will provide the customers with high standard logistics services.
From the aspect of the future tenants in Miskolc and Tiszaújváros, it is also important to mention the demographic conditions of the region: a population of nearly one million people can be reached by 30 minutes’ drive in the surrounding counties. Thanks to the investments, InfoGroup and the companies to settle down in the future can significantly improve employment in the North Hungarian region, characterised by unemployment rates exceeding the national average.
The logistics hall of 27,500 square metres, owned by InfoGroup and located in nearby Polgár Industrial Park, operates with 100% occupancy. Chosen as the Industrial Park of the Year in 2011, the Park can name such domestic and multinational companies as its tenants as Sona, Jabil or Toyota Tsusho, while Volvo and Gyermelyi have established their owned sites inside the Park and further areas are awaiting businesses wishing to settle there.
The preparatory works of the BTS projects in Miskolc and Tiszaújváros are well under way and construction will begin in the second quarter of 2017. “It is our goal to create buildings of outstanding quality not only by regional but also by national standards that satisfy all demands and help our customers to accomplish their business objectives,” said Managing Director Ádám Székely.
