Inpark’s new logistics centre for Kühne + Nagel in Páty goes fully operational
Páty, October 10, 2017 – The first facility in Páty Industrial Park was officially inaugurated today. The 23,000 sqm logistics centre was developed by Inpark and serves as a regional car parts distribution hub operated by logistics service provider Kühne + Nagel. The HUF 5 billion project created 160 new jobs.
Following a successful test run, Hungary’s latest international logistics hub was officially launched today in Páty, near Budapest. The ceremony was attended by Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.
The greenfield project was developed by the Hungarian state-owned industrial property group NIPÜF (National Industrial Park Management and Development Company), under the brand name Inpark. Construction began last November and the building was delivered in August. The building exceeds industry standards with its unique façade design and large glass surfaces. The two units of the facility offer different storage types: wide-aisle and narrow-aisle. This latter required the construction of a superflat floor. The 42-hectare Páty Industrial Park offers 188,000 sqm of development opportunity in total.
The complex is leased to Hungary’s leading logistics service provider, Kühne + Nagel Kft. They will provide contract logistics services, such as warehouse services, receipt of goods and pick & pack operations, plus value-added services including labelling and kitting in customer-specific product configurations.
The built-to-suit warehouse will employ more than 160 people. This number has the potential to grow by at least 33 percent to support increasing volume or changing trading profiles.
“We are living proof that Hungarian companies can achieve success in a tough market environment based on their expertise, innovation and prime location. The development of the logistics sector is beneficial for everyone, as it represents competitive advantage for the entire national economy” – Márton Lányi, Managing Director of Kühne + Nagel Kft. said.
Inpark’s project in Páty is part of the largest industrial park development program in Central Europe to date, which will include the construction of several modern production and logistics facilities all over the country, with investments totalling hundreds of billions of forints.
