TC, an institutional real estate investment manager, has partnered with Haskell, an experienced architecture, engineering, and construction company, to offer an integral solution to the industrial sector in Latin America. TC will provide funding to develop industrial assets tailored to clients’ specific needs.
Traditionally, if an industrial company needed to expand its facilities, it had to resort to its CAPEX, reducing capital available for reinvestment into the company’s operation.
TC and Haskell’s proposal becomes an alternative for those companies in the industrial sector looking to develop new production facilities (greenfield), modify existing facilities (brownfield), or design and adapt new production lines.
Andrés Lee, Project Development Director at Haskell Latin America, explains how this partnership will create a technical and financial solution to support companies’ expansion plans: “The proposed solution offered by Haskell & TC is to design and build spaces catered to clients’ needs while also providing funding, with the end goal of leasing the space to the client, so it can instead invest the capital it would otherwise have tied up in real estate to expand its operations.” Andrés comments.
Typical characteristic of companies suited for this type of solution are:
- Logistics and distribution companies that need to lease long-term facilities in different locations outside industrial parks.
- Small and mid-size companies looking for technical and financial support to execute their expansion plans.
- Mid-size and large companies looking to expand their operations but that do not want to or cannot make sizable CAPEX investments and, therefore, prefer to lease.
The partnership between TC and Haskell drives the growth of different companies to implement their investment needs through a “win-win” framework, where three parts will be involved: TC (financial partner), Haskell (technical partner), and the client (end-user).
“We are very excited to partner up with Haskell because it represents an additional step in our diversification process towards income-producing assets. We believe that given their technical experience and market knowledge, Haskell is the ideal partner to materialize this idea” comments Gregorio Schneider, Founding Partner and CIO of TC.
The initially projects will be in Mexico and Colombia, and the target investment amounts are expected to range between US$15 MM and US$20 MM.
