Prologis developed and leased a 5,400 square meter build-to-suit logistics property at Prologis Park Augsburg for Media-Concept Bürobedarf GmbH, a leading European online distributer of printer cartridges and toners. In total, the logistics park covers an area of 93,000 square meters; 49,000 square meters are dedicated to distribution and storage space, divided into three distribution centers used by different customers.

Construction of the new facility began in October 2015 and was completed in March 2016.

“Our new customer Media-Concept appreciates the much-needed expansion opportunities and operational optimization that Prologis Park Augsburg offers and which was no longer available at the existing location in Munich,” said Sascha Petersmann, vice president, market officer, Southern Germany, Austria, Switzerland. “The construction of multiple logistics units allows us to respond to current business developments in a flexible manner.”

Prologis customized the new build-to-suit to meet customer requirements. Another advantage of this development is its location in the Augsburg freight hub, which links to the A8 motorway and the B2 and B17 main roads. The DHL freight infrastructure is only a few minutes away by car.

“Short distribution channels are particularly important for us. Without our reliable, fast delivery service, we would not be the leading specialist in the online distribution of printer cartridges and toners in the European market,” explained Sebastian Köhler, managing partner at Media-Concept Bürobedarf GmbH. “In Prologis, we have a partner on our side for the long term, supporting us in all steps along the way—from customized property development to property management.”
