ProLogis to develop facility for Adidas

ProLogis, a leading global provider of distribution facilities and services, has announced that it will develop a major new distribution facility in China for Adidas. 
One of the world’s premier makers of sporting clothing, Adidas is to lease more than 646,000 sq ft at ProLogis Park, Suzhou. The building will function as a new national distribution center for Adidas, primarily serving markets in mainland China. An existing ProLogis customer at the park, Adidas will relocate from a smaller 172,000-square-foot (16,000 square meters) facility when the new building is completed in the second half of 2006.
Sandrine Zerbib, president of the Greater China Area at Adidas said: “We look forward to working with ProLogis again on the development of this new, state-of-the-art facility, which will deliver substantial efficiencies for Adidas as we enhance our Chinese supply-chain operations.”
Founded in 1994, Suzhou Industrial Park is one of China’s most important and fastest-growing business and industrial areas. Situated in Suzhou, a city of almost 7 million people about 50 miles west of Shanghai, the park spans an area of more than 115 sq miles (300 sq km) and is home to the business operations of approximately 2,000 companies, including dozens of Fortune 500 and Fortune Global 500 corporations.
