2 August 2017 – Press Release
Segro, the British investment fund that specialises in the logistics sector, has acquired a plot of land in San Fernando de Henares, Madrid. The plot has a surface area of 5.3 hectares and is located 17km away from Madrid, at the intersection of the A-2 and M-50 motorways, to the south east of Barajas airport.
The plot acquired by Segro is currently leased to a group that plans to operate the site as a logistics service centre for automobiles until 2022. This operation forms part of Segro’s strategy in Spain, which involves developing modern logistics facilities and urban buildings to support high-quality and sustainable distribution.
With this new acquisition, Segro is strengthening its presence in the Spanish market, where it is positioning itself as one of the major investors and developers in the logistics sector.
“San Fernando de Henares has become a key location, with several projects due to be launched over the short to medium term. This acquisition strengthens our position in Spain, in a strategic place that is just 17km from Madrid and it will allow us to build a logistics centre in a few years”, said David Alcázar, Director of Segro España (…).
Segro launched its activity in Spain in 2015 and since then has built up a portfolio containing five assets, covering a combined surface area of 120,000 m2 (constructed or under development) in strategic locations on the outskirts of Barcelona and Madrid.
