Logicenters’ extended facility in Pirkkala, Finland, just outside Tampere, has a new tenant. British product packaging company DS Smith will move into the property in March 2023. The building has been built in accordance with Logicenters’ sustainability profile and is environmentally certified according to Breeam Very Good. The facility is fitted with solar cells and is heated using geothermal energy.

“We at Logicenters are delighted to be involved in the development of DS Smith’s new facility in line with our ambitious sustainability profile. The new factory has been adapted in line with tomorrow’s logistics and there has been a really strong collaboration behind this project. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome our new tenant. We look forward to working with you for many years to come,” says Jarkko Äikää, Commercial Manager at Logicenters.

DS Smith is a leading global provider of environmentally sustainable packaging solutions, paper products and recycling services. The new premises in Pirkkala will enable it to streamline its operations and strengthen its position outside Tampere.

“We are delighted about this partnership and look forward to moving into our new facility. Logicenters has responded to DS Smith’s requirement for a modern and sustainable building in close proximity to attractive transport routes. The production in Pirkkala and Tampere, when combined with that of our other factories, will enable us to deliver exactly the type of cardboard packaging our customers need,” says Ari Viinikkala, CEO at DS Smith, Finland.

The logistics centre is located in the Tampere region, one of Finland’s most strategic locations for logistics management, with fantastic opportunities for HGVs to access the E12 motorway. Pirkkala airport is also just ten minutes away.
