EZW unit starts earthworks for German project
Dubai, August 27, 2011
Gazeley, a company of Dubai-based Economic Zones World (EZW) and a leading supplier of logistics warehouses and distribution parks, said it has started earthworks on a 47,100 sq m build-to-suit project in Kassel, Germany.
The 26 acres site is part of Magna Park Kassel where Gazeley has already built a total of 135,000 sq m of logistics and distribution space for renowned customers such as Volkswagen and Zufall Logistics Group.
The new warehouse will be developed for a leading international manufacturer of solar components and is scheduled for completion by the end of this year.
In line with Gazeley’s sustainable commitment it will include various eco elements and is aimed at achieving the “Silver Certificate” of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB), said Salma Hareb, EZW chief executive officer.
'We are fully committed to the implementation and promotion of energy efficient practices and environmentally friendly logistics developments,' Hareb stated.
'The warehouse at Magna Kassel, being developed by Gazeley, demonstrates our expertise and ability to deliver tailor made solutions for customers. Through this project and more, we will continue to seek newer and more efficient solutions for our global clients and the communities we serve,' she added.
Ingo Steves, country director, Gazeley Germany, expressed delight at having secured this long-term lease agreement which enables the company to develop the largest individual warehouse at Magna Park Kassel.
“This prime logistics location in central Germany has seen a tremendous upswing in recent years, partly due to the excellent cooperation between Gazeley and the regional development authorities,” he observed.
Magna Park Kassel provides easy access to the A7 motorway, one of the most important North-South motorways of Germany, and is linked to the East-West motorway A 44. Any German destination can be reached from here within five hours.-TradeArabia News Service
