As both a creator of exceptional buildings and an enabler of extraordinary things, our goal is to be Europe’s leading developer and owner‐manager of industrial property, and partner of choice for our customers and other stakeholders.
Our future success depends on our ability to make a positive contribution to local customers, employees, suppliers, investors and our communities. Being responsible and acting with integrity has always been at the heart of what we do.
Whether it’s manufacturing, retail or logistics, reliable distribution networks and resilient supply chains are vital for the modern world, enabling businesses to compete effectively, meet customer expectations and hit their sustainability targets.
What we do
We provide our customers with modern warehouse facilities close to consumers, talent and transport. Our big box sites offer flexible space to meet the needs of a wide range of sectors and operations, with the power to support automation and emerging technologies.
These are complemented by smaller urban warehouses, strategically situated within easy reach of end-consumers to enable swift ‘last mile’ distribution.
As business needs and consumer expectations become ever more complex, we continue to up our game to deliver for our customers. In 2021, overall customer satisfaction increased by 3 percent according to survey results, with 97 percent of current customers saying they would recommend SEGRO to others.
