Kirby and Beijer Ref Australia have committed to a 10-year lease on a new $48 million purpose-built industrial property at Altitude, Bankstown Airport, NSW. Bankstown Airport is a prime location for the business, due to its close proximity to the M5 and M7 motorways and local amenities.
The new 22,000m2 manufacturing and distribution centre, on Tower Rd, Bankstown Airport, will be situated on a 40,000m2 site. It will include 1,400m2 of office space for both businesses’ Australian headquarters.
“This new facility will help us to deliver our business strategies and objectives in Australia, acting as our main manufacturing facility, distribution centre and corporate headquarters,” says Paul Campbell, Director of Operations at Kirby.
The new development is intended to enhance the service offer to customers and allow for greater operational efficiencies by consolidating the workplace into a single building with sustainable practices.
Key features of the new distribution centre include a 5 star Green Star design, which will include a 250kW solar panel installation and a 50,000L rainwater harvesting system.
The new facility is expected to be operational by November 2020.
