The Logistics & Industrial Services team of international real estate consultancy firm Cushman & Wakefield (C&W) advised Swiss process technology specialist Sulzer Chemtech on a long-term lease for 11,500 sq m of industrial and logistics space at Zur Peninsula 6 in Essen’s “econova” business park. The landlord is BS Grundbesitz, which is based in Essen and holds a commercial real estate portfolio.
Sulzer Chemtech is part of the Sulzer group of companies and a global market leader for material exchange technology, static mixing and polymer processing equipment, supplying various customers from the chemicals, petrochemicals, refining and LNG industries.
The newly-leased space will be the site of another corporate facility; a service and manufacturing hub offering sales, engineering and manufacturing services for the European market.
The decision to open a new production facility here was substantially due to the good linkage with logistics chains, the proximity to a network of suppliers and the easy accessibility to customers. Numerous companies from the manufacturing and logistics sectors have already settled at the former steelworks site in Essen-Bergeborbeck in recent years.
