IWM Automation, the supplier of special-purpose machines for the automotive sector, will become the first tenant in the modern Hillwood Ruda Śląska warehouse park. The company will be moving to the property in Q3 of this year. The lease transaction was managed by consultants at the Industrial and Logistics Department at BNP Paribas Real Estate Poland.
When searching for the warehouse and manufacturing space, we focused primarily on locations that would provide convenient transport links for our staff, customers and subcontractors, as well as on the standard of the manufacturing and office space. We have analysed a number of potential locations for our Polish base, and in the end it was Hillwood Ruda Śląska that met all of our criteria. Furthermore, the developer’s flexibility enabled us to successfully resolve all of the issues encountered while completing the lease transaction in respect of our new location
Ryszard Gruszka, President of the Board at IWM Automation
IWM Automation set out clear requirements in respect of the space for growing their business operations. We have taken into consideration numerous different scenarios for the company’s new base and ultimately, in addition to boasting an excellent location at the junction of the express road connecting the cities within the Silesian agglomeration and the North-South ring road, Hillwood Ruda Śląska will provide IWM Automation with a modern tailored-made office, which are the components for creating an ideal workplace

The first phase of our new project in Ruda Śląska with IWM Automation as the tenant covers nearly 32 000 sqm. The entire park will offer nearly 100 000 sqm of modern warehouse and manufacturing space which – in addition to the standard LED lighting installed at all Hillwood warehouses, will feature increased fire resistance and floor loading capacity of 6t/sqm, thus meeting the needs of manufacturing operators
