Wihlborgs signs lease with Exakta in Malmö
Wihlborgs has signed a 12-year lease with Exakta for 10,700 m² of production space and 4,000 m² of office space in the Norra Hamnen district of Malmö.
Exakta is currently one of Sweden’s leading graphic design groups, offering a number of conceptual, digital and printed communication-related services.
The business is a privately-owned limited company that is experiencing strong growth, both organic and through acquisitions. Concentrated in Malmö, Borås and Hässleholm, the operations employ around 260 people and generate sales of about SEK 500 million.
In January 2019, Exakta is moving its production into the Stenshuvud 3 property in the Norra Hamnen district of Malmö, and will also be moving its head office into the same property in October. Four divisions, all located at different sites in Malmö, will then be brought together and form one large unit in Norra Hamnen.
Malmö’s Norra Hamnen district is the perfect location, close to shipping, rail, and motorways; there are plans for a major expansion of the area, with continued investment in infrastructure and opportunities to establish operations.
“Malmö is growing in several directions, and co-locating Exakta’s operations into one efficient unit at a geographically interesting location also gives the area as a whole additional strength to grow,” says Ulrika Hallengren, CEO of Wihlborgs Fastigheter.
“Moving all our operations in Malmö to the same location is a challenging thought. From the first meeting, Wihlborgs has been a secure partner, helping us to find an excellent solution. Wihlborgs’ experience and breadth is of great value for Exakta. We feel confident that we will get into our new premises in the best possible way,” says Håkan Larsson, CEO of Exakta.
