Alfa Elektro triples in size
Alfa Elektro has been present at Prologis’ distribution park in Chorzów for ten years

POLAND In mid-2018, electrical wholesaler Alfa Elektro will move to a 16,100 sqm distribution centre at Prologis Park Chorzów.

The tenant was represented in the negotiations by Savills. Alfa Elektro has been present on the Polish market since the early 1990s and was the first electrical wholesaler to established a presence in Silesia. It sells a range of around 250,000 products, including light bulbs, lamps, sockets, cables and wires. Alfa Elektro is owned by Sonepar, which has operations in 44 countries.

“Having Benefited from steady growth over the past few years and from Poland’s favourable economic outlook, Alfa Elektro decided to open a new distribution centre quickly. Our analysis of available locations and our business needs revealed that Prologis Park Chorzów met our requirements. Another argument in favour of choosing this location was our enduring, strong partnership with Prologis. The project is already underway and we expect to open our new warehouse in early Q4 2018. By tripling our warehouse footprint at Prologis Park Chorzów we will increase SKUs and stock levels to improve product availability. A 16,100 sq m warehouse is a guarantee of continued top-quality customer service, which is a top priority given the current intense competition in electrical wholesaling,” said Piotr Kurzawski, the distribution director at AlfaElektro.
“Alfa Elektro has been present at Prologis’ distribution park in Chorzów for ten years, recognising its advantages, including prime location. The scheme provided expansion opportunities to accommodate the rapid growth of the tenant. Alfa Elektro has now expanded its 5,000 sqm warehouse to 16,100 sqm in one of the largest warehouse leases signed recently in Upper Silesia. The size of the transaction is a confirmation of our client’s growing strength on the Polish market,” says Wojciech Zoń, the head of industrial agency, Savills.
