Panattoni to build 50,000 sqm centre for US grill giant
The assembly line and distribution centre will supply the European, Asian and African markets
POLAND Panattoni is to develop a 50,000 sqm BTS warehousing and manufacturing centre for US grills and accessories producer Weber-Stephen Products in Zabrze in Silesia.

Construction work will begin in August, with the tenant to move into its new plant in August 2021. Around 450 employees are to work in the plant and 4,000 sqm of the space will be offices. Another 30,000 sqm could be added to the facility in the future. The building will feature a grill academy and leisure facilities for employees. It will be BREEAM certified and solar panels wills be fitted. The centre will be used to supply European, Asian and African markets.

“We have decided to set up our first assembly line and distribution centre in Poland due to the dynamic growth of our business. This is our first manufacturing plant in Europe. We chose Upper Silesia, because it is one of the key European logistics centres, close to suppliers and customers. Within an hour’s drive, you can reach a population of 8 mln people, and within 4 hours as many as 50 million consumers,” explains Michael Jacobs, the executive vice-president of the global supply chain and operations of Weber-Stephen.

Maciej Madejak, the managing director of Panattoni, has commented on the located of the centre within the Katowice Special Economic Zone: “It provides the investor with access not only to a qualified workforce, but also to a range of tax incentives, potentially up to 25 pct of the total investment outlay. The attitude of Zabrze’s authorities was important, too. It is worth highlighting that last year the Katowice Special Economic Zone was named the best industrial zone in Europe and the second best worldwide by the FDI Business Financial Times 2019.”
