Our sector-focused team deliver expert insight into best practice, current trends, issues, demands and requirements of FMCG and manufacturing businesses. Our forum integrates best practice knowledge and thought leadership ideas to assist with every aspect of your property needs.

By having a greater understanding of the issues affecting your business and aligning property requirements with business objectives, we can help keep you ‘stay fresher and last longer’ than the competition. We understand that being in the right location at the right price is the key to success, but there are challenges to consider:

Manufacturing Industry Real Estate Challenges:

  • rising prices and the global economic slowdown are concerns for both manufacturing and logistics companies
  • the drive towards efficiency is high on the agenda
  • faster growing emerging markets will be a key focus for exporters seeking growth, at least over the short term 
  • growth prospects are still dominated by downside risks and the Euro-zone crisis remains a threat to exports and manufacturing 
  • manufacturing and logistics companies are focusing more on enhanced productivity and continuous innovation across products, processes and services.

The manufacturing industry is facing increasing pressure to find greater business efficiencies and deliver increasingly complex customer demands. Real Estate is a key element of the business process and often represents a significant cost.
By having a greater understanding of the issues affecting your business we can align your property requirements with your business objectives, keeping you ahead of the competition.
