Whirlpool locates logistics centre in Northern Italy 09 July 2015

Key strategic location allowing easy distribution throughout North Italy

Whirlpool, a leading global manufacturer of home appliances, has signed a long-term lease to occupy a 43,000 m2 warehouse situated at Magna Park Monticelli at Piacenza, North Italy.

The building will be operated by Scerni Logistics, an established 3PL who also occupy the remaining 14,105 m2 of space within the overall warehouse facility.

Whirlpool are partnering with IDI Gazeley on a strategic and beneficial lease agreement in Monticelli which may prove to be a starting point for further cooperation going forward.

Directly connected to highways A1 and A21, Magna Park Monticelli offers customers easy access to the Greater Milan area and conurbation. The park can accommodate up to 144,500 m2 of built-to-suit logistics warehouse space.

In addition to Whirlpool and Scerni Logistics, it is home to the logistics operations of Italia Logistica, which manages the logistics activities for Enel, a leading multinational producer and distributor of electricity and gas.

The site forms part of a broader network of Magna Park distribution centres that IDI Gazeley is developing in North Italy linking with two other Magna Parks already in operation and established in Villanterio (Pavia) and San Bellino (Rovigo).
