“We are happy to be able to collaborate with MEDiVET and are grateful for the trust they placed in us with such a demanding project”, says Katarzyna Żbikowska, Business Development Director, Hillwood Poland. “The investment’s objective was to adapt the warehouse for the needs of pharmaceutical and veterinary wholesales with office facilities and amenities. The premises have been adjusted to the specific requirements of the tenant, strictly regulated by pharmaceutical laws, including, but not limited to the regulations concerning good distribution practices for medicinal products and veterinary medicinal products. Under these requirements, it is essential to provide temperature and humidity control throughout the entire warehouse and adhere to appropriate cleanliness and goods arrangement standards.” adds Katarzyna Żbikowska.
Our cooperation with MEDiVET started a few years ago. As an advisory company, we strive to provide our customers with our knowledge and support them in everything they do.
As part of this transaction, our role was to find a location suitable for our customer and to draft the relevant technical specifications for the pharmaceutical warehouse, as well as to implement them at Hillwood Częstochowa West. We are confident that the chosen solution will meet the tenant’s expectations.
