DuluxGroup commits to new $27m facility in WA

DuluxGroup has committed to a 10-year lease on a new $27 million purpose-built facility in Maddington, Western Australia.

The new facility is being developed by Richmond and owned by the firm’s investment vehicle, Juceda Investments.

DuluxGroup partnered with property and supply chain firm TM Insight to design the property and will now project manage the build of the facility.

The facility is expected to be operational in mid 2020.

The 17,000-square-metre facility will be located at 4 Bickley Road, Maddington. The
development will feature significant levels of racked storage locations to accommodate a
vast range of product types, a mix of recessed loading docks and on-grade roller doors and a cross-docking facility design to create two large staging areas for inbound and outbound
freight, including customer pick-ups.

The state office for the DuluxGroup WA businesses will also be based within the facility.
“This new commitment in Maddington will consolidate multiple operations into a purpose-built facility to enable efficiency of storage, handling and distribution of multiple brands into common end points. This will allow us to support our growth in Western Australia,” Neale Rodgerson, National Distribution Manager at DuluxGroup said.

Milan Andjelkovic, Director at TM Insight, who is involved in the property procurement and
project management of the build, says the location was specifically chosen because of its
optimal positioning for DuluxGroup.
