Goodman to develop 64,462-m² facility for Stanley Black & Decker in Tessenderlo (BE)

Goodman Group has announced it will develop a 64,462-m² turnkey facility for Stanley Black & Decker at Tessenderlo, in Limburg Province, Belgium. This is the largest industrial facility to be developed in Belgium over the past three years.


The first half of the warehouse and the entire office space will be delivered in April 2012.

The development will comprise 61,486 m² of warehouse space, 2,398 m² of offices and social rooms and 578 m² of technical rooms.

Construction will commence in November and delivery will be on a phased basis. The first half of the warehouse and the entire office space will be delivered in April 2012, while the remainder of the warehouse will be handed over by the end of November 2012.

"We are pleased to have been selected by Stanley Black & Decker to develop their new facility, which is our second development in Belgium this year and follows the commencement of construction of another warehouse and distribution center in Puurs, in June. It is the largest industrial development to be undertaken in Belgium since 2008 and underlines Goodman's strength in a challenging market," said Kim Cornille, Goodman's Country Manager for Belgium.

Stanley Black & Decker will have additional land available for expansion at its approximately 150,000-m² site at Tessenderlo, and could add a further 15,000-m² extension in the future.

"We are delighted to partner with Goodman once again. We chose Goodman to develop our new warehouse, because we are very happy with the flexible solutions that they provide and are confident that they will deliver our warehouse in the very strict timeframe agreed," said Henk Vyncke, VP Supply Chain & Logistics Construction & Do-It-Yourself EMEA.

The new facility will become the distribution center for a wide variety of construction and do-it-yourself products including Stanley hand tools and storage products, Black & Decker and DeWalt power tools and Bostitch products. The distribution center will serve customers in the Benelux, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Scandinavia.

Stanley Black & Decker was advised by Jones Lang LaSalle.

"Jones Lang LaSalle is proud to have worked with Goodman and Stanley Black & Decker in negotiating this turnkey development. Thanks to the achievement of this project in Tessenderlo Stanley Black & Decker will improve the efficiency of its combined distribution center structures and processes and bring the expertise of warehousing in-house at an excellent location close to the container terminal of Meerhout with access to the main European motorways and ports," said Walter Goossens, Head of Industrial Agency at Jones Lang LaSalle.

The site is ideally situated in Tessenderlo, in the Ravenshout Industrial Zone, which is home to a number of large and multinational companies. It is located in the strategic logistics axis of Antwerp, Lummen and Liège and has a direct connection to the E313 road, just 3.5 km away.
