The Shannon Group has complimented global logistics provider DB Schenker on its €10 million development at Shannon Free Zone East. DB Schenker secured a 5.2-acre site for the project from Shannon Commercial Properties, a Shannon Group company.
DB Schenker plans to construct a 52,000 sq. ft. facility on site, built to the highest industry spec which will support its multinational customer base.
Shannon Group manages a large property portfolio which includes Shannon Free Zone and has worked closely with DB Schenker to identify a suitable site for this major development.
Commenting on the initiative, Gerry Dillon, Shannon Group Property Director said: “We are delighted to welcome DB Schenker, the latest FDI company to have chosen to locate in Shannon Free Zone. As a global leader with more than 140 years’ experience of logistics, it is wonderful to see their commitment to invest and grow at Shannon.
