ProLogis has announced it will develop a 300,000-square-foot (27,900-square-meter) industrial facility in northern Germany that has been pre-leased to Meyer & Meyer Internationale Spedition, an international provider of logistics services to the fashion and textile industries.
The new building will be located in Peine, Germany, approximately 30 kilometers east of the city of Hanover. It will allow Meyer & Meyer to consolidate operations currently housed at a number of different locations in the area, and also serve as a regional headquarters facility for the company.
"Our business has grown considerably over the last ten years, and we now have an opportunity to improve operational efficiency through centralization and consolidation," said Michael Meyer, managing director of Meyer & Meyer. "We're pleased to be working with ProLogis, and look forward to realizing the benefits of this new facility."
"Meyer & Meyer evaluated a number of possible developers before selecting ProLogis for this important project," said Roland Hennebach, ProLogis vice president. "Our international scale and reputation for quality were key factors in their decision, and we're pleased to be working with them as their industrial facilities provider."
Located along Germany's Autobahn A2 motorway, the site for the new facility offers easy access to railways, canals and Hanover-Langenhagen Airport. Construction will begin this month and is expected to be completed in the second half of 2006.
