Triplication of the storage area at the niceshops group

In view of the excellent business development, the niceshops Group has recently decided to extend the expansion of the new location in Saaz near Paldau by two years. The official ground-breaking ceremony for the new construction project took place on March 16, together with state governor Hermann Schützenhöfer, member of parliament Franz Fartek, Paldauer mayor Karl Konrad and the managing directors of niceshops GmbH and the contractors.

The extension will cover 11,000 m² and will provide mostly new storage space but also office and production space. As a result, the previous space capacities are tripled in one go. By 2020, as part of this expansion, the number of employees will grow from the current 150 to 300 people.

The niceshops GmbH is one of the leading Austrian companies in the field of online trade and logistics with headquarters in Saaz near Paldau and a branch in Graz. Currently more than 30 online shops are operated. From Saaz, around 100 employees send more than 5,000 parcels to Europe and the world every day. In addition, the Graz Reitschulgasse has an office with around 50 translators, IT and marketing experts.

Recently, sales increased continuously between 40 and 70 percent per year. In 2017, EUR 27 million were redeemed and for 2018 sales of around EUR 38 million are expected. In total, niceshops serves more than one million customers from over 150 countries served in 15 languages. The export rate is well over 80 percent. The value added remains largely in the region.
