This significant aspect of revenue grew by 38 %, from 26 million EUR to 36 million EUR per year.

Interest in investing in the infrastructure of modern industry grows,” says Milan Kratina, Chairman of the Board in Accolade Industrial Fund.
Nowadays fund owns fourteen industrial parks. Six in the Czech Republic (Cheb, Stříbro, Hořovice, Pavlov, Týniště nad Orlicí and Přeštice), seven in Poland (Štětín, Bydhošť, Zelená Hora, Lublin, Kielce, Bialystok and Lehnice) and one in Germany – Alsdorf. Within these parks operate sixty different tenants - world's famous brands such as DHL, Tchibo, Assa, Abloy, KION, Schenker and Vive.
“Last year we got sixteen new tenants. The European market is currently the most visible an e-commerce segment. In the development of modern industrial facilities plays the segment a significant role. All customers want their orders to be delivered the next day and companies look for facilities from where they can serve the biggest area possible. Preferably on several markets at once. We can also see that both investors and tenants take into account a sustainable footprint. Our facilities fulfill the strictest standards and requirements for modern and environmentally unharmful expansion. The proof is the fact that all of our buildings have BREEAM Certification.” adds Kratina.
