Bilfinger Industrial Services Nederland has agreed a long-term sublease with Kalmar Netherlands for 3,285 sq. m. of office space at modern office building Waalhaven Oostzijde 123 in Rotterdam. The sublease includes 137 parking spaces on the office building’s parking deck.

Bilfinger is an industrial service provider for projects and maintenance to industrial assets. The company is moving its head offices in the Netherlands from Zwartewaal to Rotterdam. Bilfinger is leasing this high-quality office space directly from Kalmar, so that only a few adjustments are needed in the building. The company is moving to Rotterdam to be closer to its customers.

Kalmar offers solutions and services for cargo handling at ports, terminals, distribution centres and heavy industry. The company will continue to use the large commercial space at Waalhaven Oostzijde 123. The company supplies various modern RTG cranes to ports all over the world. Some of these cranes are assembled at Waalhaven Oostzijde 123.

The modern Waalhaven Oostzijde 123 office/commercial building, which was completed in 2013, is located in a prestigious part of Waalhaven. This area is known as the maritime business centre of Rotterdam. The available floors of the property offer a magnificent view of the harbour and the maritime activities in the area.
