Friend Tire enters Florida market, leases 46,020-square-foot industrial space in Davenport
Colliers International facilitates lease transaction for tire company's Florida distribution center
David Wilson, Senior Associate, and Richard T. Davis, Jr., Executive Managing Director, of Colliers International represented the tenant. Bobby Isola of JLL represented the landlord, MDH Partners, LLC.
"Friend Tire is excited to enter the Florida market and expand their supply chain into the Southeast," Wilson said. "They were attracted to this location in Davenport because it offers exceptional access to Interstate 4 and U.S. 27, as well as the Orlando, Tampa and Ocala markets.
Four Corners Business Park is located less than two miles from the I-4/U.S. 27 interchange. The Class A industrial park includes three buildings totaling 795,753 square feet of industrial space. Other notable tenants in the park include Nestle Waters, HD Supply and JCQ Services.
"The I-4 corridor continues to see robust absorption from tenants and users across a broad spectrum of business types," Wilson said. "While names such as Amazon, Quaker and Home Depot have dominated the headlines in recent years, there is also strong activity from mid-size companies planting their flags in the Central Florida region or expanding their footprints."
Friend Tire is a wholly owned subsidiary of Yokohama Rubber, currently serving 23 states. The company plans to move in to Four Corners Business Park before the end of the year, after final office build-out and racking installation are complete.
