FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
First fully integrated platform to combine fact-based, lease negotiation expertise with warehouse engineering and optimization services
Montreal – October 6, 2016 – LIDD Supply Chain Consultants announced today the launch of an industrial real estate practice headquartered in Toronto. LIDD's first real estate brokerage (www.liddrealestate.ca) will provide dedicated tenant advisory services to industrial users in the Greater Toronto market.
"The Toronto metropolitan area represents the third largest industrial market in North America, so opening our first brokerage here was a logical next step in expanding our services to include real estate," said Charles Fallon, Principal at LIDD. "We will continue to look at other strategic locations to better serve our expanding client base."
LIDD's real estate offering goes far beyond finding buildings and negotiating lease agreements. Their fully integrated platform is the first to align key real estate decisions – such as lease renewals, facility relocation and site selection – with a core suite of supply chain strategy and infrastructure advisory services.
“Traditional brokerages may know about real estate but they are at a loss when it comes to designing the interior of a distribution center or implementing the right supply chain software,” said Jesse Micak, Principal and Broker of Record at LIDD Toronto Brokerage Inc. “Our team has a wealth of industrial real estate knowledge, but we also understand how every detail – from column spacing to slotting – ultimately impacts the success of our clients’ facility investments.”
“We are dedicated to representing only tenants and users of space, which means we never take listings or represent landlords,” continued Mr. Micak. “We are uniquely positioned to advise our clients on how they can mitigate the risks associated with poor infrastructure decisions that can create long-term operating penalties.”
