Atterbury and Truworths sign deal for distribution facility in Cape Town

Truworths’ new Western Cape distribution centre will be built in King Air Industria Cape Town, an Atterbury Property and Old Mutual Property development.

The new building will consolidate Truworths’ various Cape Town facilities under one roof and the development’s 53 000m2 initial phase will consist of 3 000m2 office and 50 000m2 warehouse with the option to expand to 70 000m2.

As a result of business growth, we have spent some time looking to build a larger, state of the art, distribution centre to accommodate our future requirements.  The proximity of King Air Industry and the business park benefits have led us to conclude an agreement with Atterbury who we also feel have a good understanding of our warehousing business needs.  This positions us well for the future and we are looking forward to the completion of this project,” comments Emanuel Cristaudo, CFO of Truworths.

Designed to target an internationally recognised EDGE sustainability certification, the new development is due to break ground in October 2022 with completion scheduled for September 2023.

The 72-hectare King Air Industria provides easy access to Cape Town International Airport cargo terminals. It is located between Airport Approach, Borcherds Quarry, Robert Sobukwe, and Pallotti roads and connected to the city and inland region with access to the N2 highway and the R300 freeway.
