Furniture1, Karzol-Trans become HelloParks Maglód's latest tenants
Furniture1, one of the largest online furniture stores in Hungary, and logistics company Karzol-Trans logistic company are the latest tenants of HelloParks Maglód's 46,000 sqm warehouse, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
Furniture1, started operating as a startup in Lithuania in 2006. Now the company is present in 10 countries. It has been operating in Hungary since 2015 as Butor1.hu. The new 5,000 sqm distribution center in Maglód is one of the largest logistics investments of the company, where it establishes a facility supporting eight countries. For the company, which mostly uses bulk and rack storage, HelloParks Maglód was a clear choice primarily due to its excellent location and unrivalled rental conditions.
“Our company has reached an important milestone with the investment in Maglód. We are very pleased to have reached an agreement with such a flexible company, which offers excellent conditions and the best value for our money, such as HelloParks. It is also a great pleasure that environmental awareness and sustainable operation are just as paramount to HelloParks, as they are to us!” said Ferenc Balsai, country manager of Furnitue1.eu.
The Hungarian-owned Karzol-Trans has been dealing with logistics and related services for more than 25 years, and currently has its own 5,000 sqm warehouse in neighbouring Ecser. With the new 6,400 sqm lease, the company will be able to centralize its fragmented service locations.
“HelloParks Maglód, which is located five minutes away from our site, was chosen due to the extraordinary features of the area, the proximity of the airport and the highway. This allows us to outsource the operation for our dedicated customers as close as possible, which is extremely important for a smooth business. Together with HelloParks, we have developed a shelving system in the new facility for more space-saving storage of pallet goods, and we implemented new security and IT investments in line with our customers' needs” said Zoltán Joós Jr., managing director of Karzol Logisztika Kft.
“Hello Furniture1, Hello Karzol-Trans! It is a great pleasure for us that such well-known companies with international networks have chosen HelloParks Maglód as their logistics center. We hope that we can be partners in supporting their future growth, as nearly 200,000 sqm of warehouse space development is possible in our park. We hope that our park will serve as a real home for their activities and future plans. We would like to thank them for the trust they have placed in us with excellent service, expert attitude and flexible cooperation!” said Rudolf Nemes, CEO of HelloParks.
One of Hungary’s leading developers, Futureal Group’s member HelloParks intends to build a total of 193,000 sqm of warehouse, light industrial and office space on the Maglód site. Several buildings will be developed in the park with different sizes - depending on the needs of tenants - between 26,000 and 90,000 sqm. The minimum leasable area in the first facility is 3,200 sqm. For smaller tenants, the second building can offer premises of 500, 1,000 or 2,000 sqm.
Similarly to HelloParks Fót and HelloParks Páty, the HelloParks Maglód facilities will also meet one of the highest BREEAM sustainability standards, due to smart solutions that ensure energy efficiency and environmentally friendly operation, according to the press release.
