CTP is a full-service commercial real estate developer and manager based in the Czech Republic. Thanks to strategic investments expanding our portfolio of premium business and logistics parks, we are now the fourth-largest industrial developer in Europe and the eighth-largest overall.
CTP specializes in delivery and management of custom-built, high-tech business parks for leading international and domestic companies making strategic investments in new or expanded operations in Central Europe.
Our award-winning portfolio of properties includes the CTPark Network—the largest integrated system of industrial parks in Central Europe—as well as several stand-alone, city-centre A-class office developments, including Spielberk Office Centre in Brno and IQ Ostrava. An extensive development land bank, together with retail and mixed-use holdings, balance the portfolio.
CTP’s full-service platform incorporates all aspects of the development process under one roof—everything from land purchase, permitting and financing to design, construction, and fit-out, followed by comprehensive property management, park management, and client after-care services. Our dedicated team of over 160+ professionals brings the right mix of talent, experience, hard work and entrepreneurial spirit to each new project.
The 93,000 m2 Logistics Park Cefin Arad was officially added to CTP’s expanding Romanian portfolio, under the name CTPark Arad. CTP, Europe’s 4th largest industrial developer, continues to look at new opportunities outside of its home-market the Czech Republic, and Romania is considered the next key market for the global expansion of CTP’s award-winning CTPark Network.
The new CTPark Arad will offer the company’s signature A-class premium property, and units available from 1,000 m2 with the possibility of greenfield expansion. The park is especially suitable for manufacturing and logistics companies, particularly those looking to take advantage of CTP’s full-service plug & play solutions. Current tenants of the park include Gebrueder Weiss, DB Schenker and Gefco.
The park sits on the southwestern outskirts of Arad, 30km from Timisoara, Romania’s third largest city. The Arad-Timisoara agglomeration is favoured by investors involved in manufacturing and logistics thanks to its ideal location in the West of Romania on major transport routes linking central and southeastern Europe. Further industry growth is also supported by attractive labour costs, a skilled workforce and supportive local government. The Arad-Timisoara agglomeration is home to a cluster of foreign investors including Continental, Flextronics, Procter & Gamble, Linde Group, Draxlmaier Group and FM Logistic.
Remon Vos, CTP CEO states: “Romania is an important growth market for CTP, and we believe that the time is right to expand the CTPark Network into the region. More than 37,000 people are employed in our parks in the Czech Republic alone, so CTP’s Romanian entry can be seen as a key driver for lowering unemployment rate in the cities and regions in which we locate our parks. 400 international companies call the CTPark Network home and I know that many of these companies are actively looking for opportunities in Romania.”
Arad is the most important trans-European road and rail transportation junction point in western Romania, included in the 4th Pan-European Corridor linking Western Europe to South-Eastern European and Middle Eastern countries. The city has an extensive light rail network (second only to the country capital of Bucharest) and several bus lines covering most of the city's neighbourhoods and suburbs. Arad International Airport, with the largest and most modern cargo terminal in western Romania, is situated only 4 km west from downtown Arad and is directly connected to the Arad west bypass road, part of the A1 Motorway
CTP continues to expand in Romania. The developer recently completed handover of a 4,000 m2 property for existing client, Fränkische, in CTPark Turda.
CTP hands over a 4,000 m² unit in CTPark Turda to long-term client, Fränkische, on April 1st 2015. Investments into CTPark Turda exceed EUR 5 million, including construction of new infrastructure and also completion of phase I of the Fränkische service centre. Construction on the unit began in Autumn 2014 and continued over the winter months.
CTPark Turda is strategically located on the A3 motorway (operational) and the A10 motorway (currently in construction), in the centre of Romania. The park is close by the city of Cluj (home to a large technical university), and an international airport.
CTPark Turda covers an area of approx. 25 hectares of zoned land with permits and infrastructure. CTP is in an advanced stage of negotiations with further interested parties.
Fränkische, a major producer of plastic piping for the automotive and white goods industries, currently utilises a 19,000 m2 custom-built facility at CTPark Okříšky in the Czech Republic. Fränkische joined the CTPark Network (CZ) in 2007 and in 2013 expanded operations with a 7,290 m2 custom-built extension
