OHL recently signed two leases for additional warehouse space in Ontario and Fontana, CA, totaling 250,000 square feet. This brings the OHL total to eight buildings equaling 1.6 million square feet in Southern California.
The Southern California region continues to be a hot spot for OHL, the company said. The region’s employee base has also continued to grow steadily. OHL has added 66 employees in the past six months and shares labor within the region.
OHL operates multi-customer campus distribution centers in the Riverside, Ontario and Fontana areas serving more than 60 customers in the food and beverage, electronics, consumer packaged goods and restaurant supply industries.
“The Southern California region is a very strategic area for OHL. As our company expands its international footprint and service offerings, we depend more heavily on our North American warehousing network solutions,” said John Peddie, senior vice president of operations with OHL. “Our California operations serve as key import and export locations and we expect to experience continued growth in this region.”
The agents for OHL in the Ontario and Fontana leases were ProVenture Commercial Real Estate and CB Richard Ellis. The agent for the landlord was Colliers International.
OHL currently has more than 120 distribution centers with more than 28 million square feet of warehouse space worldwide. OHL has operated in Southern California since 2003.
