The new facility will carry out precision injection moulding, automated and manual assembly of dispensers as well as the design and development of dispensing solutions,” says Maros Nagy, Site Director WD Nitra, DS Smith, Plastics Division.
Nitra Invest is the developer of the property and is subleasing the space to DS Smith. Development company Nitra Invest is one of the major landlords and investment companies active in the commercial real estate market in the Nitra region. “We typically take a head-lease on these industrial buildings and consequently sub lease them to other 3rd parties. By doing so we effectively take on overall responsibility for the property, and the freehold owner is thus relieved from the effort of renting and taking care of the tenants. Hence they can remain fully devoted to their core activities and simultaneously enjoy the income from the rent”, says Ondrej Scurka jr., an executive of Nitra Invest.
Cushman & Wakefield, a leading global real estate services firm, was involved in the transaction.
“DS Smith was looking for production and warehouse space in the Nitra area with specific and strict requirements.

Following to consultations with the Cushman & Wakefield team, company DS Smith selected and subleased the building of the production company Daidong in Nitra industrial park as the most suitable alternative for their needs.
