Logicenters is now acquiring a warehouse facility in Eskilstuna with a total area of 71 600 m2. The logistics company Logent – operating on behalf of Beijer Byggmaterial – will be the tenant in the property. The facility also includes a building right for an additional 27 000 m2 and is expected to be completed by the end of April 2024.
“We are delighted to acquire this brand-new central warehouse and further strengthen Logicenters’ presence in Eskilstuna. We look forward to a great collaboration with Logent and Beijer and are committed to being a valuable growth partner for many years to come”, says Matthias Kettelhoit, CEO at Logicenters.
Through a forward purchase agreement, Logicenters is acquiring Beijer Byggmaterial’s central warehouse in Eskilstuna. In addition, it includes a building right of 27 000 m2 on the same plot. The property will be leased by the logistics company Logent AB, which manages operations for Beijer Byggmaterial.
“Logent has been a part of the project since day one and has played a significant role in the design and layout of the property to ensure optimal conditions for the efficient operation of Beijer’s logistics. For Logent, it feels good that the property has found a long-term and stable owner through Logicenters’ acquisition of Beijer Byggmaterial’s central warehouse in Eskilstuna. This creates the conditions for us to continue offering high-quality logistics solutions to our customers. Logicenters are competent in property management, and we feel confident that they will be a good partner that creates the conditions for continued seamless collaboration for our operations”, says Daniel Rhedin, Vice President Solution Design at Logent AB.
The property is strategically located near Highway 53 and E20, with direct access to Stockholm – and by car, you can reach Eskilstuna in just 17 minutes. Buses run between Kjulamon and Eskilstuna every half-hour, making it convenient for customers and employees.
Logicenters is acquiring the completed facility from the current property owner, Charmilla Eskilstuna AB, who views the agreement positively.
“This deal is further evidence of our excellent and professional collaboration in the logistics market since our inception in 2007. I sell to Logicenters with great confidence, knowing they will manage and develop the property in an outstanding manner”, says Jan Lindberg, Owner of Charmilla Eskilstuna AB.
Retail company and e-retailer Teknikmagasinet has announced that they will be moving into Logicenters facility in Eskilstuna Logistics Park. The long-term leasing agreement is for a 6,000 m2 area of the logistics property company’s facility. At the same time, Logicenters will continue to develop the property to accommodate additional tenants.
Teknikmagasinet, a Nordic consumer electronics and technical lifestyle products chain, has now signed a long-term lease with Logicenters. The lease agreement is for a 6,000 m2 warehouse space in the logistics company’s modern property in Eskilstuna Logistics Park, located on the outskirts of Eskilstuna. The facility is equipped to function as a central warehouse for both start-ups and existing retail companies and is adapted for a combination of store and e-commerce flows.
“We would like to warmly welcome Teknikmagasinet to our modern property in Eskilstuna and we are delighted that they’re moving in. Teknikmagasinet is an exciting company in the growing e-commerce sector and we look forward to closely following their expansion. I would like to thank Teknikmagasinet for their excellent collaboration and I’m convinced that they will thrive in their new warehouse,” says Fredrik Nygren, Commercial Manager at Logicenters.
Eskilstuna Logistics Park consists of an area of 420 hectares and is located just outside Eskilstuna with direct proximity to the motorway, railway and airport. The geographical location of the logistics park provides excellent transport opportunities to Örebro as well as to the Mälardalen region and Stockholm. All of this contributes to optimal conditions for fast-growing retail companies and e-retailers. In addition, there is an opportunity for Logicenters to increase its presence even further in the region, which would enable for both current and new tenants to expand in the future.
“Our new warehouse gives us greater capacity and is optimised to handle our growing e-commerce business. It is also ideally located from a logistics perspective. Staying in Eskilstuna, where our current warehouse is located, was a stated goal as it would enable us to retain our existing staff and their expertise. In addition, it makes the move significantly smoother and minimizes the risk of disruption,” says Ulrika Göransson, CEO of Teknikmagasinet.
