57,500 sq m DC for motor parts group

Mobis Parts Europe, the official dealer for KIA and Hyundai parts, has opened a 57,500 sq m distribution centre at Beringen in eastern Belgium.

The DC developed by Goodman is one of the largest logistics real estate projects in Belgium this year. The new facility, situated in the Belgian province of Limburg, now serves as the central warehouse for Mobis, Hyundai Motors and Kia Motors, and will directly supply customers in the Benelux, France and Switzerland. The new building provides 54,500 sqm of warehousing space, which includes a 2,500 sq m mezzanine and 3,000 sq m of office space.

To meet Mobis’ specific operational needs, the ceilings are more than 12 metres high, the building has a reinforced floor, and provides separate spaces for hazardous materials and tyre storage.

Unal Aytan, senior manager operations at Hyundai Mobis Europe, said: “The new, modern distribution centre developed by Goodman will enable us to modernise our supply chain and better service our internal and external customers, while reducing our natural resource consumption. Goodman has listened closely to our needs and has added a number of specific features to the building that further ensure the safety of our employees and help us operate more efficiently.”

“The success of the project was due to the good cooperation between Goodman and Mobis, which embodies our customer-centric approach to real estate,” said Kim Cornille, Goodman country manager for Belgium.
