NFI Industries Purchased a 759,260-square-foot distribution Center From SRG

A supplier of supply chain solutions NFI Industries, Inc purchased a distribution center in Inland Empire from Sares Regis Group (SRG) on December 1st, 2022. 

NFI provides services in the following areas: 

  • Port drayage.
  • Intermodal.
  • International logistics.
  • Brokerage.
  • Transportation management.
  • Warehousing and distribution.
  • eCommerce fulfillment.
  • Transportation and industrial real estate. 

SRG was established in 1993 as the premier west coast real estate development and investment company concentrating on multifamily and commercial buildings.

The distribution facility, next to a Prologis warehouse and several other industrial buildings, was constructed in 2000 on 42.8 acres at 13000 Mission Boulevard and 3100 Milliken Avenue. Although it was formerly leased to Kmart, it’s not apparent whether there is a tenant there right now. Requests for feedback were not promptly answered by either the buyer or the seller.

Industrial Market in the Inland Empire

Rising interest rates and flattening e-commerce sales growth do not affect the Inland Empire’s industrial market.

The nation’s industrial development pipeline is still expanding, now at 713.6 million square feet under construction, and vacancies remain low, signaling that demand continues to outpace supply and new deliveries. However, the paper claims that the industry has suffered from the unpredictability of the financial market’s climate.

Other Purchases in the Inland Empire

Best Buy leased 501,649 square feet in the bigger industrial park known as LogistiCenter at Eastvale earlier this year. In the summer, Rexford Industrial Realty purchased a brand-new 1.1 million-square-foot complex for $471.7 million, or $445 per square foot.

The seller’s interests were represented in the transaction by Colliers’ Michael Kendall, Gian Bruno, Kenny Patricia, Steve Bellitti, Tom Taylor, and Joey Jones, who offered market knowledge.
