Prologis has signed leases for a total of 225,000 square meters in the southern Netherlands. The contracts cover several locations, including Waalwijk, Tilburg, Oosterhout, Venlo and Born, for both existing and new warehouses.
Renewal of Partnership with Ingram Micro
From a total floor area of 225,000 square meters, 55,000 will be used by Ingram Micro, which extended the lease for the Waalwijk DC1 facility. The company will also lease the nearby DC2 warehouse of 18,000 square meters.
Jack Heijkans, country executive Benelux, Ingram Micro Commerce & Lifecycle Services, said, “We are pleased with the further renewal of our long-term agreement with Prologis. We selected Prologis because they offer us flexible growth options at the same location and because the site matches our strategy to further expand our operations in the southern part of the country.”
Gina Helmold, vice president, head of developments Prologis Benelux, added, “We are delighted to facilitate the growth of Ingram Micro by extending and expanding our long-term partnership. And, of course, it is good to see that several other customers also extended their contracts with Prologis.”
Developing High-Grade Logistics Space
Sander Breugelmans, vice president, country manager Prologis Benelux, commented, “Our customers continue to appreciate the Netherlands as a preferred location because it is the gateway of choice to Europe. Economic growth and increasing consumer spending are pushing the demand for logistics space. We aim to meet this demand in a responsible manner by increasing our footprint at specific logistics hotspots. By equipping these hotspots with future-proof logistics facilities, we not only meet the demands of current users but also offer a fitting solution for second- or third-generation customers.”
