Expansion of Goodman Poznań Airport Logistics Centre kicks off with LiNA Medical as its first customer
Danish company LiNA Medical, a provider of specialist solutions for electro-surgery and laparoscopic treatment, is expanding its facility at Goodman Poznań Airport Logistics Centre by 6,400 sqm into a new area of the Park currently under development.
Goodman Poznań Airport Logistics Centre, is ideally suited to store and distribute advanced life saving and health products, and will provide LiNA Medical with additional space to ensure even more efficient distribution of innovative solutions for gynaecology used by healthcare providers worldwide.
Joanna Górna, Logistics Manager, LiNA Medical, commented, “Due to increased demand for LiNA Medical products, the need to lease additional warehouse space was only a matter of time. Having used Goodman’s services for several years, we found Goodman to be a predictable and reliable business partner, so the decision to continue our partnership was an obvious choice. Increasing leased space will ensure effective distribution of finished goods shipped worldwide and regular deliveries of components and raw materials to our production locations”
Goodman Poznań Airport Logistics Centre is 800 metres from the Poznań ring road, 4 km from Poznań-Ławica Airport and 9 km from Motorway A2 connecting central Poland with Germany and the rest of Western Europe. With population of 1 million residents in the Poznań metropolitan area, Goodman's clients benefit from an excellent access to a skilled labour force. The location is within easy reach for 40% of employees and companies registered in the Greater Poland Voivodeship.
Jarosław Czechowicz, Country Manager Goodman Poland, said, “LiNA Medical’s decision to extend both its partnership with Goodman and its existing premises, speaks to our abilities to create world-class logistics space for technologically advanced companies in great locations. Goodman Poznań Airport Logistics Centre aligns with our strategy to provide quality properties close to large urban populations with easy access to transport infrastructure. This allows our customers to be closer to their end consumers, enabling faster deliver and improved service, while also providing access to a skilled workforce, which is key in today’s competitive labour market.”
LiNA Medical will anchor the new development at Goodman Poznań Airport Logistics Centre which will offer a total of 19,000 sqm of leasable space, including over 930 sqm of office space. It will be 10 metres high and have a floor loading capacity of 5 t/m2, ensuring optimal conditions for regular logistics operations.
