Miele Australia is set to establish their new Queensland headquarters in a 7,065 square metre tailored warehouse, office and showroom facility within the Brisbane Airport precinct.
After a formal market process managed by Colliers International, Brisbane Airport Corporation’s (BAC) property division, BNE Property, will deliver the facility for the white-goods manufacturer by the end of 2018.
Miele Australia Head of Facilities Management Scott Rundle said Brisbane Airport offered an ideal location for the company’s new Queensland warehouse.
“We initially engaged with the Colliers Occupier Services team to help us define our requirements and consolidate our two existing Brisbane sites.
"It was a complex 12 month process which now enables Miele to deliver a purpose built warehouse which consolidates all administration, logistics and servicing functions into the one building."Miele's company profile currently includes more than 18,000 employees worldwide and a turnover of 3.71 billion euros,“A key driver for our new location was access to road networks, the local shopping precinct and the public transport network," Rundle said.
BAC General Manager of Commercial Businesses John Tormey said the airport was happy to have secured Miele's business within the confines of Brisbane Airport.
“BNE Property has been working closely with Miele and Colliers to meet their specific requirements and look forward to providing an end-to-end service to deliver the project," he said.
“For Brisbane Airport to attract an international company of this magnitude in a competitive market demonstrates its strength as a business destination.”
Brisbane Airport is already home to more than 420 businesses and 22,000 workers, with this figure expected to grow to around 50,000 by the end of 2029.
