Auckland Airport today announced that it is to build a brand new 7000sqm warehouse and office facility for international freight forwarding specialist, Röhlig Logistics.The site at 13 Maurice Wilson Avenue will also accommodate two 3000sqm general purpose warehouse and office facilities, further accelerating the Airport Company’s successful speculative build programme which continues to support South Auckland’s strong industrial leasing market.
Delivery of the new Röhlig facility will complete Stage 2 development of The Landing – Auckland Airport’s world-class business park, located less than five minutes from the airport terminals. Development focus will now shift to Stage 3 and the preparation of a further 12 hectares of land. Earthworks on Stage 3A are scheduled for completion in March 2017.
Mark Thomson, Auckland Airport’s general manager – property, is delighted to welcome Röhlig to The Landing, where they will join a roll-call of major logistics and manufacturing companies.
“We have developed The Landing to attract quality long-term tenants, not simply through proximity to the airport but through the overall master-planning and our ability to design buildings to the unique requirements of our tenants. With more than 150 years’ history and over 150 branches in 33 countries worldwide, Röhlig is an ideal partner for us and we are excited to be able to provide a new base for them in New Zealand that will directly benefit their customers.”
Röhlig New Zealand’s managing director, Andrew Antonopolous, says the move to The Landing will not only benefit existing clients, but support the company’s growth strategy here in New Zealand.
“We are committed to growing our New Zealand business here in Auckland. This new purpose-built facility, and its surrounding amenities, will cater for this growth and play an important role in enabling us to attract and retain the high calibre of staff that will help to drive our business forward.”
