PGT Holdings’ Only U.S. Distribution Center Lands in Great Southwest Industrial District

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7 GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas  Philadelphia-based PGT Holdings Inc., a distributor of dog food and pet treats, has zeroed in on the Great Southwest Industrial District for its only distribution center in the U.S. “The company needed to find a central location in the U.S. so it picked Dallas/Fort Worth,” says Joe Santaularia, market director for Dallas-based Bradford Commercial Real Estate Services. The winning property was 907 Avenue R in Grand Prairie, TX, where PGT was able to immediately tap into 54,125 sf of a 129,400-sf warehouse. YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7 With new contracts in hand, PGT Holdings reached out to Santaularia and Brian Pafford, Bradford’s senior vice president and managing partner, to find suitable warehouse space, any place in Dallas/Fort Worth, that met its requirements, 100% air conditioned, good labor pool and available for immediate occupancy. “This was really a fast-moving deal. We searched all over the metroplex,” Santaularia says. “It was between this building and one other one. The ability to move in quickly was important.”  PGT Holdings , signing a long-term lease, has already ramped up operations in the 35-year-old warehouse, situated close to TX 360, the George Bush Toll Road and Interstate 30. Situated on nearly six acres, the two-story warehouse is owned by DFW I Investors LLC. Canon Shoults of Holt Lunsford Commercial represented landlord.
