Last spring, the Jollyroom e-commerce company signed a rental agreement with Castellum and has now taken occupancy of logistics premises comprising approx. 20,400 sq.m. in the Port of Gothenburg Logistics Park. Castellum recently completed Stage One – approx. 30,000 sq.m. of the logistics park, which is strategically situated near the Port of Gothenburg.
Castellum has previously announced that the Bagaren och Kocken e-commerce company has already taken on a leasing agreement for 10,000 sq.m. of the company’s Port of Gothenburg logistics facility. Leasing to Jollyroom thereby assures that Castellum’s entire first stage of approx. 30,000 sq.m. is fully leased and occupied.
Jollyroom already rents two logistics facilities from Castellum, totaling close to 23,000 sq.m. Establishing themselves in the Port of Gothenburg Logistics Park now means the company will benefit from a significant increase in total logistics capacity.
“This leasing of additional facilities to Jollyroom constitutes one of the major logistics rentals to be carried out in Sweden this year, and fully demonstrates the increasing amount of storage-space required by an expanding e-commerce industry. We’re happy we can help Jollyroom grow within our property portfolio, thereby establishing a deeper working cooperation”, says Mariette Hilmersson, Managing Director for Region West at Castellum.
“Castellum has been a solid partner on the property side and a contributing factor to the company's ability to grow profitable in a tough competition situation," says Jollyroom’s founder and majority owner, Ole Sauar.
“In order to meet market demand, we’ve begun preparations for starting up several new logistics projects, including Stage Two – another facility, comprising approx. 35,000 sq.m. – at the Port of Gothenburg Logistics Park. We have also the possibility of building 5,000 sq.m. on Östra Sörredsvägen and soon, another 6,600 sq.m. in Arendal”, concludes Mariette Hilmersson.
