CHARLOTTE, May 11, 2020 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale-leaseback of a 126,363-square-foot, single-tenant, fully leased manufacturing facility in the Charlotte-area community of Harrisburg, North Carolina.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Wilbert Plastic Services (WPS). AIC Ventures purchased the asset and executed a long-term, absolute net lease with the seller.

The building will continue to be a mission-critical location for Wilbert Plastic Services, a premier thermoforming and injection molding company. Situated on 15.64 acres at 7301 Caldwell Rd., the building is along the I-85 corridor, which is one of the premier distribution locations within the Charlotte market, and half an hour from the WPS headquarters and thermoforming facility in Belmont. This location is two miles from Interstate 485, five miles from Interstate 85 and provides exception regional access

The JLL Industrial Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Managing Director Pete Pittroff, Senior Director Patrick Nally, Associate Val Derrick and Analyst Dave Andrews.
