Engler Group and Garbe Industrial Real Estate build logistics centre for online tyre dealer
Hamburg/Ensisheim (France), March 9, 2020 – The Engler Group and Garbe Industrial Real Estate GmbH are building a new logistics property in Ensisheim, Alsace, on a 185,000 square metre site. The project development comprises two halls, one of which has already been leased to Delticom AG, Europe’s leading online tyre retailer.
“In addition to our previous portfolio purchases in France, Ensisheim is now the first project development and part of our strategy to position ourselves more internationally with such pan-European products in the future,” says Jan Dietrich Hempel, Managing Director of Garbe Industrial Real Estate GmbH. Construction work has already begun on the logistics facility, which comprises two halls of roughly the same size with a total floor space of around 103,000 square metres. The new building is scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of 2020. The project development is part of the portfolio of Logistrial Real Estate GmbH, which was recently acquired by Union Investment.
Steven Engler, Managing Director of the Engler Group: “The online tyre dealer Delticom will use a logistics hall as a warehouse location for tyres and complete wheels. The company, which offers more than 100 tyre brands and 25,000 tyre types in online sales under the brand name ReifenDirekt, benefits from the convenient location. The location in Alsace between Mulhouse and Colmar is located directly on the A35 motorway and offers fast connections between the border triangle of Germany, France and Switzerland. Basel and Freiburg can be reached in 30 minutes by car and Strasbourg is less than an hour’s drive away, plus points that also apply to the rental of the second hall section. “At present,” says Steven Engler, “we are in talks with potential interested parties.”
