Logistic hubs meet companies’ demands

A vibrant area, good connections and services, and a central location have created a large logistics centre in the Lahti region. Congestion-free connections and a versatile supply of properties and business areas offers an excellent setting for logistics companies. The companies in the area include transport and forwarding experts, fashion and furniture logistics operators, heavy steel transport companies and several central warehouses.

The Pennala logistics and industrial area offers an excellent setting for a diverse range of industrial businesses. Even though Helsinki is only a hundred kilometres away, property and land costs in the area are approximately 30% lower than in the capital region. The size of the area, amount of affordable land available and the existing infrastructure create very cost-efficient surroundings. Companies can make use of the natural gas network, power lines and geothermal heat. There is a plentiful workforce available thanks to the good connections and large population of the area.

Pennala has attracted some major players: Itella Logistics has brought its operations to the logistics and industrial area and other companies include the concrete roof tile manufacturer Monier Oy, Allu Finland Oy and Eurokangas Oy.

Some of the large plots of land are not on groundwater areas, so a whole range of different operations are possible without having to deal with strict environmental legislation. Orimattila is a business-friendly town and is willing to expand the Pennala industrial park to meet companies’’ demands.
