Businesses in Orange County will have the opportunity to enhance their supply chains with a purpose-built facility developed by Goodman Group. The company has acquired a 65-acre manufacturing and distribution center in Fullerton, California and will be redeveloping the site into a modern logistics campus. Renamed the Goodman Logistics Center Fullerton, the project supports construction of up to 1.5 million square feet of new space.
The new facility will represent almost half of the 3.2 million square feet of logistics space currently available for lease in the entire infill Los Angeles market. The site has the potential to generate hundreds of jobs for the city.
With its strategic location, customers can choose to lease space ranging from 170,000 to 1.5 million square feet set across a four-building campus configuration or develop their own built-to-suit facility to support their specific requirements. In addition, it will offer customers access to a premium location including features such as potential for cargo/commuter rail service, significant paved trailer parking and cross dock functionality with multiple points of ingress/egress.
“With the evolution of our customers’ supply chains continuing and increasing consumer expectations for faster delivery, it is important that we continue to source and offer high-quality logistics sites for our customers. These sites provide our customers with the opportunity to be more efficient and agile and keep up with the changing retail and e-commerce landscape. This acquisition provides maximum flexibility for our customers to create a unique logistics campus tailored to their needs with capability to increase their supply chain efficiency,” says Anthony Rozic, CEO of Goodman North America.
Strategically located to optimize delivery speeds, Goodman Logistics center Fullerton benefits from its close proximity to the Los Angeles and Long Beach Ports, key freeway infrastructure including the 91, 57, 5, 605 and 710 freeways, and 26 UPS, FedEx and OnTrac shipping hubs and connecting to a large affluent consumer population of 18 million.
With the acquisition of this site, Goodman has successfully purchased close to 200 acres in the Greater Los Angeles market within the last three months. Goodman continues to build on its global gateway city strategy to better serve customers with urban logistics sites close to consumers.
