DALLAS, June 13, 2012 – Jones Lang LaSalle today announced that it has negotiated a 225,498-square-foot, long term industrial lease on behalf of Southwest Moulding Company, located at 3845 Gifford Street in Grand Prairie.  Southwest Moulding will relocate its headquarters to Grand Prairie this summer from its current distribution center in Dallas.

Jones Lang LaSalle Senior Vice President Michael Swaldi and Vice President Nathan Orbin represented the tenant. Stream Realty Partners Regional Managing Partner Chris Jackson and Managing Director Cannon Green represented the landlord, CH Realty IV / Grand Lakes.

“Our team did extensive research across the Metroplex to find the best facility for Southwest Moulding,” said Orbin of the 18-month-long project.  “We carefully took the supply chain network, employee base, total occupancy costs and growth capabilities into consideration to determine the ideal location.”

According to Jones Lang LaSalle research, the manufacturing sector has shown signs of improvement in early 2012. Year-over-year statics report 5,500 more manufacturing jobs in the Metroplex through March (the latest figures available from the Texas Workforce Commission).  Across the Metroplex, eight of the nine industrial submarkets recorded positive net absorption, with warehouse and distribution space acting as a driving force.
