Optima Logistics Centre launched in Solpark, Poland
Optima Logistics Center has been launched by Hans Bühler, managing director of the Optima Group, who handed over the new building to Heiko Funk, managing director of OPTIMA materials management.
Optima invested about EUR 20 million in the project in the Solpark industrial park in Schwäbisch Hall in Poland.
All the participants from Optima and the commissioned partners completed the new logistics centre—one of the largest projects in Optima’s history—in record time.
The new building along with all new infrastructure and the latest IT technology have been in full operation since the start of March, so it was now time to officially dedicate it.
“We chose this location because the Solpark offers the best expansion opportunities and we wanted to avoid having two large facilities,” said Bühler. “The current development at Optima Pharma has proven that this is the right path—the expansion opportunities there are already being put to use with the new assembly hall.”
The new centre offers about 6,000 square meters of space plus an office wing for 150 employees, and is ten meters tall. The building is heated and cooled with a concrete alternative—similar to underfloor heating.
The result is consistently pleasant temperatures in the building all year round. “It was important to have daylight enter the space, therefore the large window was installed in the facade, and skylights also provide a great deal of natural light,” said Rolf Blank, the architect.
