“I am pleased that we have been successful in keeping up with international competition for 10 years. Our goal is to continue to expand the scope of the agency, but we must not forget that we have developed and grown up on industrial leases. This is one of the reasons why we want to focus more on educating the public, especially in the area of information about industrial halls and warehouses and their necessity for maintaining the standard of living we have now. Although this is not a popular claim, the truth is that industrial developers make a significant contribution to low unemployment. It should be noted that halls and warehouses are an integral part of public infrastructure, even in cities. Without them, there wouldn't be a supermarket offer as we know it, there would be no growth in online stores from which customers expect quick delivery, and cities wouldn't be able to offer enough jobs, ” he says.Jakub Holec, managing director of 108 AGENCY .
