Panattoni has begun construction on a brownfield site in Ostrov, where it’s developing a new industrial park. Having served in the past as a trolley bus factory serving the entire Eastern Bloc, the site will be transformed in the coming years into Panattoni Park Ostrov North. Panattoni’s director Pavel Sovička says the first 20,000 sqm building will be occupied by Amphenol Tuchel Industrial, allowing it to leave the center of Ostrava as well as increase its employee ranks by 50 to 350. The company will be producing components for the medical, agricultural and construction machinery sectors as well as for photovoltaic systems, batteries and heat pumps.

“Our revenue growth hit double digits during the Covid period and we expected that we’ll continue with this pace of growth,” said Joachim Schmidt, the chief executive of Amphenol Tuchel Industrial GmbH. “Next year, we should reach €100 million in sales for the first time in the history of our company.” Sovička says the majority of the demolition waste left over from the former factory on the site has been recycled and that the new industrial park is a unique example of adherence to constructing according to circular economy principals. Both of the buildings planned for the site aspired to exceptionally high BREEAM certificates, said Sovička.
