Swedavia has sold two companies that own land in Airport City Göteborg at Göteborg Landvetter Airport.
The buyer is Zeppelin Sverige AB, exclusive distributor for Caterpillar Inc. in Sweden.
In order to meet continued strong demand for logistics properties, Swedavia is planning to develop a further 350,000 square metres of warehouse and logistics facilities.
The sale is in line with Swedavia’s strategy to create value by successfully developing properties close to its airports in order to reinvest in the airports’ development and competitiveness.
Airport City Göteborg has the vision to be a cutting-edge airport city with opportunities for the companies of tomorrow to work and grow.
Located in the heart of Airport City Göteborg is Logistics Park 1, a hub for the logistics of the future.
Swedavia has now sold two companies that own land in the area to Zeppelin Sverige AB. Zeppelin is planning to set up its Swedish headquarters there, with 32,000 square metres of premises and some 100 jobs along with a modern, multifunctional and flexible service facility that will be a full-range base for all of Zeppelin’s operations in the western region.
“We are pleased that Zeppelin has chosen to set up operations in the middle of an optimal logistics hub next to Göteborg Landvetter Airport, with its proximity to air links, the biggest cities in the region, Gothenburg and Borås, to the Port of Gothenburg, and also to the large road network here,” says Stefan Stenberg, CEO of Swedavia Real Estate.
“With its international profile, Zeppelin will fit in well with the mix of companies setting up operations here. We are now planning for a Logistics Park 2 in order to meet the strong demand.”
“Thanks to the choice location, we can focus on a regional expansion since more people can use the facility from a larger catchment area,” says Volker Possögel, CEO of Zeppelin Nordics and Zeppelin Sverige AB.
“It will be easier than ever to reach us whatever the transport mode.
“The idea is for the building to be certified for its environmental performance.
“The Zeppelin Group works with great purpose to ensure that all strategic business units will be carbon-neutral before 2030, both in terms of premises and operations,”
