Online store in new warehouse

We decided to consolidate our production and storage properties into one location at Hillwood Marki, because we needed to streamline storage processes and tight control over the inventories and manufacturing. Our goal was to shorten delivery times. We have chosen the Hillwood’s project because it is located not far from our previous facilities. That allowed us to avoid difficulties to reorganize distribution network and to remain in the area, what clients and employees are accustomed to already. – comments owner of the company Hurtownia Opakowań Anna Gumowska.

The Client asked us about high quality warehouse space in the Marki area, near Warsaw. The company wanted to increase the quality of space and consolidate its points without changing location in significant way. The market investigation showed that the best solution is to choose Hillwood Marki. – comments Jakub Kokiernak, Industrial & Logistic Consultant z AXI IMMO.

Jakub Kokiernak adds that dynamically e-commerce sector and growth in consumption in Poland has significant influence on the packaging market, where the tenant is active. This sector is now growing approx. 7 % a year in Poland, so tenants from this market should have the possibility to expand within the parks, like in Hillwood Marki.
