"We are very proud of this award and at the same time we are delighted that for several years we have been able to maintain a leading position in the industrial and logistics market. This would not be possible without the commitment of our team and colleagues from other Colliers offices in the CEE region. Our success is the result of hard work, market knowledge, good relationships with tenants and developers. In 2013, we brokered one of the largest and most complex deals in Poland (over 120,000 square meters), which was conducted with Intermarche and Goodman. Our clients are leading companies from the "Global 500" list by Fortune magazine. We always try to adjust our services to our clients’ needs – advanced warehouse search www.warehouses.pl is a good example." - says Tomasz Kasperowicz, Partner at Colliers International.
