Prologis, the global leader in industrial real estate today announced an agreement to lease a 102,900 square foot distribution centre at Prologis Park Heathrow in Hayes to leading chilled food manufacturer Adelie Foods Group Ltd.
Adelie currently supplies the retail, coffee shop, travel and contract catering sectors with a wide range of high quality Food to Go products and will use the new building to expand its national distribution network in order to meet growing demand across its customer base.
“We are delighted to have secured this new facility which affords us significant extra capacity in such a great location,” said Rick Kovac, Supply Chain Director at Adelie Foods Group. “The new building gives us the scope to further develop our own and our third party distribution model and, importantly, also enables us to create a much better working environment for the team.”
Responding to the demand for modern distribution facilities in West London, Prologis developed the building speculatively. It completed at the end of 2014 with an EPC A (14) rating and is expected to achieve BREEAM ‘excellent’ accreditation.
“We are working hard to create the best opportunities in prime markets for our customers and we are very pleased that this unit suits Adelie Foods’ operations so well,” said Andrew Griffiths, managing director of Prologis UK.
“With this letting, Prologis Park Heathrow is almost complete and we are looking ahead to our next development in Hayes. In 2014, we acquired a 30 acre site next to nearby Stockley Park. Our plans for this site, which is now known as Prologis Park West London, are progressing well and we have just submitted an outline planning application to the London Borough of Hillingdon.”
Savills and DTRE acted for Prologis, while Aspect Property Consultants represented Adelie Foods Group.
Prologis owns and manages approximately 23 million square feet of logistics and distribution space in the UK as of December 31, 2014.
