Montea and Intergamma, market leader in the Benelux with construction markets Gamma and Karwei, signed an agreement for the development of a new distribution centre of circa 95,000m² on the former site of the old Glass Factory located in De Kellen, Tiel. The building will be among the 10% most sustainable new-build developments, with a BREEAM Excellent certification.
Hylcke Okkinga, Director Montea Nederland, commented: “This development fits perfectly into the strategy of Montea. A former factory site that is being completely revitalised, with all challenges that come with it. To be able to do that together with a party that shares the same sustainability ambitions is, of course, icing on the cake.”
Joost de Beijer, CEO Intergamma, said: “With the construction of this new distribution centre our distribution capacity in the Benelux will be centralised, expanded and made more sustainable. We have been investing in a sustainable logistics chain for some time, and now also in sustainable logistics property. This is not only important to us, but also to our customers and employees. With Montea, we found a development partner who shares our ambitions and is able to realise these.”
