Prologis delivered a 55,000 square meter build-to-suit distribution center at Prologis Park Galanta-Gáň to Tesco Stores Slovakia. The new building will serve as Tesco’s distribution hub for dry grocery products to stores in Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland. In addition to the new distribution center, Tesco and Prologis have extended their lease agreement for an existing 91,500 square meters of distribution space at Prologis Park Galanta-Gáň.

Commenting on the new build-to-suit, Martin Kuruc, Retail Director of Tesco Stores Slovakia, said: “This will help us serve customers better in our stores in the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland as well as Slovakia, and will be at the heart of our Central European distribution network. I’m delighted that this new hub will be here in Slovakia. Our decision to extend our operations at Prologis Park Galanta-Gáň was largely due to its ideal location for serving customers across Central Europe.”

“With its location just east of Bratislava, Prologis Park Galanta-Gáň is playing an increasingly important role in our Slovak and CEE portfolio,” said Martin Polak, senior vice president, regional head, Prologis Central and Eastern Europe. “More and more global retailers are looking at Slovakia as a hub for their regional logistics operations thanks to its central location and favorable market conditions, and it is our priority to make sure our customers can use this to their business advantage by providing them with Class-A distribution space.”

Prologis Park Galanta-Gáň is just off the E571 road and currently comprises three build-to-suit facilities totaling 185,000 square meters of state-of-the-art distribution space. The park’s direct access to the D1 highway offers customers easy access to Hungary and the Czech Republic. When fully developed, the park will have five buildings totaling almost 250,000 square meters.
