The entry into the industrial zone in Sereď, in the Trnava Region, is the first investment for this company in Slovakia. Mountpark Logistics EU has chosen Sered due to its direct connection to the R1 expressway and its strategic position between Bratislava and Trnava, where an automotive plant (PSA Peugeot Citroen) has been built, and Nitra, where another carmaker (Jaguar Land Rover) is about to build a plant.

The start of construction and development of the logistics sites is estimated to start in the first half of this year and should be completed in the first half of 2017, the TASR newswire wrote. Production premises will cover 44,890 square meters.

Mountpark Logistics EU has more than 200 years experience in commercial real estate and has been involved in many successful logistics and retail projects in Great Britain and throughout Europe. In central Europe, it is also engaged a project in the city of Pilsen in the Czech Republic.     

Covering an area of some 24 hectares, the Sereď – South industrial zone is currently the largest industrial zone in Slovakia. It was launched in February 2015 to complement the Sereď - North industrial park which features more than 10 companies over a total area of 41.1 hectares and has 700 workers. The industrial zone is situated in the middle of a triangle of the biggest investments in Slovakia, Ingrid Kantorová of reebok.sk told TASR.
