Sime Darby Motors Australia will soon be making its way into Brisbane Airport Corporation’s (BAC) warehouse and distribution facility located at its Export Park development.
The new Export Park comprises a 9,450 sqm warehouse facility, 550 sqm of offices, 104 on-site car parks as well as eight on-grade roller shutters on a dual street frontage.
Sime Darby Motors Australia’ new facility will join warehousing and office facilities from RSEA Safety, GEODIS, DHL, Bonds Transport and Direct Couriers, creating 150 jobs during its construction.
Martin Ryan, BAC’s Executive General Manager Commercial, said that securing Sime Darby Motors Australia’s lease in the facility was quick after it was launched, an indication of the strong demand for industrial land at Brisbane Airport.
“We are thrilled to welcome Sime Darby Motors Australia to our growing network of logistics and transport companies and the broader BNE community,” he said.
“Our attraction of this global business demonstrates our unrivalled offering for industrial companies, with unparalleled transport connections and access to 24/7 operations.
“With Brisbane industrial vacancies at a six-year low, BAC is pleased to be in a position to be proactively developing first-class facilities in our prime location.”
“Sime Darby Motors Australia looks forward to expanding our Brisbane footprint with this significant new premises at Brisbane Airport,’’ Sime Darby Motors Group Retail Australia Managing Director, Matthew Wiesner said.
“We are pleased to be able to secure a large and well-appointed facility that is in such close proximity to the region’s major air, sea and land transport routes for maximum supply chain efficiency.”
Delivered using energy and heat efficient construction material, Export Park includes provision for solar energy and electric vehicle charging.
BAC is responsible for the sustainable development of the airport’s entire 2700-hectare lease holding and manages the $2 billion property portfolio.
