IDI Gazeley (Brookfield Logistics Properties), announced that Whirlpool, a manufacturer of home appliances, has signed a long-term lease to occupy a 43,000 m² logistics warehouse situated at Magna Park Monticelli at Piacenza, North Italy.
The building will be operated by Scerni Logistics, an established provider of Third Party Logistics (3PL) Services who also occupy the remaining 14,105 m² space within the overall warehouse facility.
Directly connected to highways A1 and A21, Magna Park Monticelli offers customers easy access to the Greater Milan area and conurbation. The park can accommodate up to 144,500 m² of high quality, built-to-suit logistics warehouse space.
In addition to Whirlpool and Scerni Logistics, it is home to the logistics operations of Italia Logistica, one of the largest Third Party Logistics (3PL) providers in Italy, which manages the logistics activities for Enel, a leading multinational producer and distributor of electricity and gas.
The site forms part of a broader network of Magna Park distribution centres that IDI Gazeley is developing in North Italy linking with two other Magna Parks already in operation and established in Villanterio (Pavia) and San Bellino (Rovigo).
