17th May 2021 — GLP announced today that Stiegelmeyer, a leading medical furniture manufacturer, is leasing a warehouse in GLP Torun logistics centre, Poland, which will be used as a European distribution hub. Stiegelmeyer’s new warehouse comprises more than 3,600 SQ M of space as well as 200 SQ M of office facilities with a further 6,500 SQ M of warehouse space available for lease.
Stiegelmeyer is a German manufacturer of quality medical beds and furniture for use in hospitals, care homes and healthcare facilities. The company produces 125,000 beds annually which are sold across European markets. GLP Toruń is located within a 20-minute drive from one of Stiegelmeyer’s four manufacturing plants in Europe.
The GLP Toruń Logistics Centre is situated within the Pomeranian Special Economic Zone, and 10 km from central Toruń. It is located next to the National Road 91 which provides easy access to Expressway S10 and Motorway A1, which links the north and south of Poland. The two buildings currently offer 42,000 SQ M of warehouse space. Depending on client needs, the project can be expanded to include an additional 28,000 SQ M.
Kamil Bosiacki, CEO at Stiegelmeyer said: “With one of our manufacturing plants situated in the nearby village of Grubno, the GLP centre is the optimal solution for us to support the manufacturing process and the distribution of our beds to European markets while ensuring our employees a convenient commute. We’re happy with our professional relationship with GLP and we believe that the new warehouse will support our day-to-day operations and business growth.”
Małgorzata Gaul, GLP’s Business Development Manager responsible for the project said: “Our park is popular with clients who value flexibility and a convenient location next to major transport hubs in this part of the country. Toruń is situated within a 1.5-hour drive from the largest Polish seaports. Also, our innovations such as recently introduced LED lighting make our buildings increasingly energy-efficient.”
