Logistics company JUSDA Europe, former Foxconn's Global Logistics Solutions, leased 37,389 sq m of warehouse and office space in CTPark Pardubice II. In this project, JUSDA Europe was represented by JLL Industrial Agency.
„Securing the CTP Park in Pardubice allows JUSDA Europe to maintain and build on what are already very strong foundations. It provides us with the base enabling us to fulfill our next 5 year strategy to grow our Warehousing portfolio and capabilities not just in the Pardubice region but right across Europe. Going forwards we see this as a three way partnership (JUSDA, CTP & JLL) delivering solutions like this, leveraging the core competencies and expertise from all three companies to deliver a fair and balanced outcome allowing all stake holders to prosper.” said Graeme Strachan from JUSDA Europe.
"We are happy to see that JUSDA Europe is strengthening its position in the country and especially in the Pardubice region. Thanks to the flexibility on both sides of the transaction we could successfully close this deal which is one of the largest on the market for the last twelve months." said Miroslav Kotek, Associate Director in JLL Industrial Agency, which represented the company during the negotiations.

The company operates worldwide in the following industries: hi-tech electronics, home appliances, automotive, apparel, medical equipment, FMCG and others.

The industrial market in the Pardubice region is showing promising growth and currently offers 167,000 sq m of class A industrial space for rent and further 12,000 sq m is currently under construction. In general, the interest in industrial real estate in the Czech Republic lasts, and the rate of construction activity remains high. This is proven by the fact that in three consecutive quarters total volume of industrial space under construction has surpassed 500,000 sq m. At the end of Q4 2017 the total volume of industrial space under construction in the Czech Republic reached 527,400 sq m. During Q4 2017, gross take-up reached 359,500 sq m which is 12% above the Q3 2017 figure and 31% below Q4 2016. In Q4 2017, the countrywide vacancy rate stood at 4.1% which is one of the lowest figures in Czech history.
