Colliers is pleased to announce the sale of a 36,119 square feet of warehouse space on ±77 acres of land located near W Reagan Street and Loop 256 in Palestine, Texas. The buyer, Perfect Life TX, LLC dba Callizo Aromas, was represented by Judy Beebe and Blake Gibson of Colliers. Steve Demuth and Ray Ver Hey of Staples Commercial Group, LLC represented the sellers, Tom Clamon and Baylor University, respectively, in the transaction.

 

"We are excited to have helped our client find their first U.S. location for manufacturing and distribution operations,” said Judy Garza Beebe, Associate of Colliers. "Our international platform, in-house bilingual skills, and a great group effort with Steve, Ray and the Palestine EDC proved to be the right combination for a successful transaction, and we could not be happier for our client."

 

The buyer purchased the warehouse and land tract to develop their first facility in the U.S. for the creation and sale of aromatic ingredients for companies that manufacture mass consumer products. With current operations in Spain and throughout Latin America, including Costa Rica, Colombia, Peru, Paraguay, Venezuela and Mexico, Callizo Aromas primarily manufactures fragrances and flavors, including pet flavors, and zootechnics.

 

Located between the Houston and Dallas metro markets, along Loop 256 in Palestine, Texas, the property will serve as a strategic location for product distribution. Union Pacific, two Walmart distribution centers totaling over 1.1 million square feet, Sanderson Farms, and NASA are among the major employers in Palestine. Since 1872, Palestine has also been a town with deep roots in the railroad system.  The Palestine EDC continues to focus on offering businesses incentives to encourage the area's economic growth.
