MLP Group operates on the Polish, German, Austrian and Romanian markets. It has a portfolio of properties with about 1.2 million sqm of existing, under construction and permitted ready to build rental space. The Group currently operates 22 logistics parks in Poland and abroad. In addition, in 2022 it concluded several reservation agreements for new plots to develop further logistics parks in Poland and Europe. Based on the current land banks and reserved plots (totalling approx. 200 ha), it secured development potential for another 1 million sqm of warehouse space.
The strategic goal is to continually expand the warehouse portfolio by developing BigBox buildings and City Logistics projects. MLP Group intends to continue to develop rapidly, above all in Germany, where it is steadily increasing the portfolio of projects predominantly in the Ruhr area, Hessen region and Brandenburg. It also plans to strengthen its foothold on the Austrian market. Additionally, it is analysing entrance into new countries i.e. Benelux and Hungary. The Polish market remains very important to the Group, where it will consistently expand its offering in key logistics regions. In 2022, capital expenditure (CAPEX) will amount to approx. EUR 150-200 million, of which some 30% will be allocated to purchase of new plots.
