Nairobi-based greenfield commercial property developer– Africa Logistics Properties (ALP) now targets Small and Medium entreprises with warehousing space as it expands its offering on the market.
This is at its new property in Limuru, targeting to ease supply chain management for small and medium-sized businesses.
The facility is part of the larger ALP West complex located in Tilisi which, once completed, will comprise seven phases of up to 1,076,391square feet of sustainably developed grade A warehousing.
Named after Lake Kyoga in Uganda, the warehouses which total 107,639 square feet have been completed just under a year after ALP broke ground on the site, in June 2021.
Speaking at the official opening, Trade, Investment, and Industry Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria encouraged other investors to build similar facilities, citing the need for better warehousing to stimulate trade and economic prosperity.
This is especially now that the economy is in the middle of recovering from the impact of the pandemic.
"Warehousing is and always will be a key economic enabler, and it is about time that the country invests in high quality warehousing solutions,” Kuria said.
ALP CEO, Richard Hough, reaffirmed the company’s commitment to providing quality warehousing for all sizes of businesses, while leading the way in climate-smart industrial real estate.
“We are in the business of making operations easier for our customers, regardless of the size,” Hough said.
Since 2017, ALP has been operating warehouses in Ruiru, Kiambu County, that are home to many companies including e-commerce giants Twiga Foods and Copia.
