The Belgian investor has increased the area of its warehouse complex in the Leningrad Region.
In the Lomonosovsky district, in the Gorelovo industrial zone, a new warehouse complex of the Alers Rus company was opened today. The Belgian company has invested more than 1.5 billion rubles in the development of its business in the region. Its area is 25300 sq.m. - it will become part of the company's existing warehouse complex, which will now amount to more than 60,000 sq. In addition, the investment project will bring about 200 new jobs to the region.
“Two years ago we signed an agreement on the implementation of the project, which we are opening today. The company's plans were implemented in a difficult, turbulent time, but despite the sanctions pressure, the company did not stop its investment cycle and completed the project. The Leningrad Region is a major transport and logistics hub, and the creation of new storage facilities in the region adds impetus to the development of industry in the region,” Anastasia Mikhalchenko, Director of the Economic Development Agency of the Leningrad Region, who accompanied the implementation of the investment project at all stages, said at the opening ceremony.
The company has been operating in the field of warehouse logistics in the Leningrad region for over 25 years. The decision to build an additional Class A warehouse terminal was made in 2019.
