Solar Polska opens centre in Symetris Business Park
Solar Polska is to open a shared services centre in Symetris Business Park, an office complex in Łódź, owned by EPP. Colliers International advised the tenant in the transaction to lease almost 1000 sqm of office space.
Solar Polska Sp. z o.o. is part of Solar Group – one of the largest distributors in Northern Europe of solutions for electrical and industrial companies. Solar has been operating on the Polish market since 1998, advising on solutions for individual customer needs. The company’s headquarters and central warehouse are in Łódź, and it has branches in many Polish cities, including Kraków, Lublin, Gdańsk, Poznań, Szczecin and Wrocław. Solar products can be bought on the solar.pl website.
“The shared services center (SSC) has existed for almost three years. Due to the continuous development of Solar Group’s structure and the transfer of subsequent processes to Poland, we decided to lease a large office. We chose Symetris Business Park due to the convenient location in the center of Łódź and the high standard of the building”, says Monika Ciupińska, Manager at the Solar Polska Shared Services Center in Łódź.
“The opening of Solar Polska’s SSC confirms that Łódź is a good location for shared service centers. We are glad that we could help the tenant in choosing the location and that the Solar office is located in one of the best quality buildings in Łódź”, emphasises Marcin Włodarczyk, Regional Director in Łódź, Colliers International.
Symetris Business Park is a modern office complex consisting of two buildings totaling approximately 19,000 sqm. The facility is located on Piłsudskiego Avenue – the main artery of the city, connecting Śródmieście with the two largest districts of Widzew and Retkinia. Symetris Business Park offers flexible layouts, open space, conference rooms, offices and quiet rooms. 381 parking spaces in the underground garage are available for tenants. The complex has a green BREEAM certificate.
Symetris Business Park, developed by Echo Investment, is currently held in the portfolio of EPP – a real estate investment company operating according to the REIT formula and investing primarily in the retail properties throughout Poland. EPP’s current portfolio includes 18 retail properties, six office buildings, and two development sites in Warsaw, with one currently under construction, offering a total of over 790,000 sqm.
“Since it opened, Symetris Business Park has enjoyed great interest from tenants, especially leaders of the shared services sector, who, like Echo Investment, see the great potential of Łódź. Our investment is in a convenient location, is easily accessible and offers a whole range of modern solutions”, says Paweł Milcarz, senior leasing manager at the Echo Investment Office Department.
