GLP announced that the last building developed at GLP’s logistics park in Modlniczka, near Kraków, will have Cummins as its main customer.
GLP Kraków Airport Logistics Centre offers a total of 174,000 sq m of dedicated logistics and light industrial space. There is still 2,500 sq m available for lease in the building, which will be completed in May 2023. The site is located 300 metres from the Kraków Ring Road (Expressway S52) junction, within 1km of the city limits and 4km from Kraków-Balice International Airport.
The development, which GLP states is its largest project in Lesser Poland will be home to a division of Cummins that provides after-sales service for all products powered by Cummins engines. Cummins delivers solutions for specialist vehicles and critical applications, e.g. power generators. At GLP Kraków Airport Logistics Centre, Cummins will open a 3,500 sq m high horsepower engine rebuild facility. The company will also use 940 sq m of office space.
Cummins’ brand-new facility in Kraków is situated centrally in Europe to offer strategic support to customers across the entire region in all market segments. It will provide greater capacity, enhanced capability and will increase Cummins’ European footprint. The $10m investment, due to open late 2023, will be the new base for Cummins Poland, which will also be home to its main operational facility in the country, to include a warehouse, workshop, and administrative offices. Staff will transfer to this new improved facility, located only 7km from the currently site. The company anticipates the creation of several great new employment opportunities in the area around the new rebuild centre.
