Set to be one of Australia’s largest automotive parts distribution centres
One of Australia’s largest automotive parts distribution centres will open at Merrifield Business Park in late 2021, with leading Australian developers MAB and GPC confirming Ford Australia has signed a 10 year pre-lease for a 51,480 m2 facility. The facility will consolidate Ford’s spare parts operations into one purpose-built facility and help them service their customers faster and more efficiently.
The new purpose-built parts distribution facility, to be constructed by Texco, will comprise a 50,580 m2 warehouse, 900 m2 office occupying a site of 87,691 m2 and features a 5-Star Green Energy rating, super awning and 14.6 metre clearance height to enable Ford to store parts for current and future generation cars.
It will also offer Ford staff onsite parking facilities, a cafeteria and a walking track within the Merrifield Business Park, where it joins a growing network of businesses including Dulux, D’Orsogna and Steritech.
The new logistics facility represents the biggest investment in Ford Australia’s parts business in 60 years.
Merrifield Business Park’s close proximity to key rail, road and airport infrastructure, along with the ability to efficiently service the eastern seaboard helped secure the deal.
