An important construction project began in January at Logicenters’ site outside Borås. Over a period of nine months, Logicenters has erected a modern logistics facility on behalf of Speed Group at the Viared logistics hub. The 38,000 square metre property has now been completed and the tenants have moved in.
During Q4 of 2017, Logicenters signed a ten-year lease with Speed Group for a logistics facility in the fast-growing Viared area, just outside Borås. Since the beginning of 2018, work has moved forward on completion of the 38,000 square metre facility. This facility will meet Speed Group’s need for more logistics space, a strategic location and flexibility.
“We are extremely satisfied with Logicenters’ working methods, which have enabled them to complete a logistics facility for us under a high-pressure time schedule. We have currently moved in three customers, and business is up and running, which is extremely exciting. It would have been impossible to achieve this in the short time frame that we had from the decision to completion without the excellent collaboration between business and the City of Borås. All of the stakeholders really want to do something good for Borås, which creates a very positive working climate, both now and in the future, in which we will work together to create more jobs,” says Peter Nilsson, CEO of Speed Group.
Logicenters sixth investment in Viared
Only 60 kilometres, 38 miles, from Gothenburg, Viared is important to Logicenters, which has invested in a number of properties in the area. This new build is located in Prognosgatan in western Viared, and also has a signboard along the R40 main road.
“Our relationship with the city of Borås is good, and we are very positive to the idea of more investment in Viared. We have now built our sixth property in the area, this time for Speed Group’s business, and we will continue to invest here,” says Matthias Kettelhoit, Commercial Head, Logicenters.
“The city of Borås has invested a lot in the little over 220 acre new industrial site, and we are very satisfied with the establishments that have been made there. This indicates a continued good growth in the region and secures jobs and investment in both the long and the short term,” says Daniel Göök, Establishment Manger, Commercial division of Borås City.
