RLI Investors accompanies the purchase of a logistics property near Ulm
On behalf of an asset advisory mandate, RLI Investors (RLI) accompanied the purchase of a logistics property as part of a sale-and-lease-back transaction for the German fund “Wittelsbacher Ausgleichsfonds”. The seller and long-term tenant is the Rompa Group.
The property is located in the ArealPro commercial area in Leipheim in the logistics region of Swabia. The asset built in 2019 has around 4,500 square meters of hall space and 200 square meters of office space. The property benefits from favourable transport links directly to the federal highway 8 (BAB 8), with a nearby connection to the federal highway 7 (BAB 7). The location between the established logistics regions of Stuttgart and Munich and the business locations of Augsburg and Ulm enables optimal transport routes both regionally and nationally.
Rompa Group, which leases the entire hall space back on a long-term basis, is a Dutch plastics processor with several production sites worldwide. The customers come from the automotive industry, consumer electronics and the medical sector.
Glock Liphart Probst & Partner mbB provided legal advice on the purchase of the “Wittelsbacher Ausgleichsfonds”.
Katrin Poos, Managing Director of RLI Investors: “We are pleased about the trust the “Wittelsbacher Ausgleichsfonds” has placed in us with the second mandate. Our selected partners appreciate our in-depth expertise in the German logistics market.”
In addition to its own fund business, RLI Investors advises national and international asset managers as well as family offices on the purchase of logistics properties for portfolio additions and then provides support in comprehensive asset management. In the past, RLI has accompanied investments of around EUR 303 million for third parties.
