Wisconsin-based Kohler Co., a manufacturer of bathtubs, sinks and faucets, could expand its operations significantly in North Texas with the help of a new 1.3 million-square-foot distribution facility in DeSoto, which, upon being built, will sit about 15 miles south of downtown Dallas.
This could more than double the manufacturer's distribution operations in an existing facility totaling 651,500 square feet of industrial space at 951 Garden Ridge Parkway in Flower Mound. The existing building in Flower Mound is owned by Prologis Inc. (NYSE: PLD).
JLL Managing Director Terry Darrow agrees, adding that southern Dallas County has an edge in the market.
"Things are going great down in southern Dallas County," Darrow said. "There are a few big deals knocking around the market and this part of the region offers lower operating expenses and the ability to be closer to a distribution center."
