Miele steps up to accommodate evolving business

Miele Australia owned a 4,000-sqm office/distribution centre in Sydney at Frenchs Forest. Miele likewise had its factory outlet business outsourced in several places totalling 2,000 sqm. The company wanted to make a strategic repositioning by consolidating all its existing offices, distribution centres and factory outlets into one national distribution facility, which will have an area of about 8,000 sqm.

Banking on our credibility and expertise, Miele was confident that Jones Lang LaSalle can turn this plan into reality. Upon appointment, we created competitive leverage to drive the best financial and location outcome for the client. The Firm also collaborated with Miele’s 3PL provider to smooth out logistics issues such as truck movements, travel times and costs to client network as well as its retail outlets and national delivery network.

With our assistance, all of Miele’s goals were accomplished. First, French Forests was sold at a price above its book value. Second, Miel had its operations consolidated into a built-to-suit facility that met all of its requirements. The agreement also provided for future flexibility, allowing expansion and contraction options as needed.
