Africa Logistics Properties (ALP) has opened a new modern warehouse facility at ALP West Logistics Park in Limuru, Kiambu County aimed at easing supply chain management for small and medium-sized enterprises.
Named Kyoga, after the Ugandan lake where the Nile flows through on its way from Lake Victoria to Lake Albert, the warehouses total 107,639square feet have been completed just under a year after ALP broke ground on the site in June 2021.
The facility is part of the larger ALP West complex located in Tilisi which, once completed, will comprise seven phases of up to 1,076,391square feet of sustainably developed grade A warehousing that maintains 44 and 51 per cent energy and water savings respectively, and 50 per cent less energy in embodied materials.
Speaking at the official opening, Hon. Moses Kuria, Trade, Investment, and Industry Cabinet Secretary, commended ALP for their efforts and underscored the government’s commitment to attracting investment into Kenya.
“I want to reiterate the commitment of the government to promote investments and welcome investors to create jobs and help increase incomes and improve Kenya’s competitiveness on the regional and global stages. What delights me is the business model. What you are doing as ALP is empowering and enabling businesses,” said Hon. Kuria.
ALP CEO, Richard Hough, reaffirmed the company’s commitment to providing quality warehousing for all sizes of businesses while leading the way in climate-smart industrial real estate.
“We are in the business of making operations easier for our customers, regardless of the size. Our commitment to ensuring all our tenants, and by extension other businesses in Kenya, experience climate-smart and modern warehousing that meets their current and future needs,” Hough said.
ALP West is strategically located at Tilisi, which is 2 minutes away from Nairobi/Nakuru highway. The expansion of the six-lane highway will ease transportation and make an excellent distribution network within Nairobi Central Business District (CBD) and neighbouring countries like Uganda.
ALP acquired 22.4 acres of industrial-zoned land at Tatu Industrial Park situated 22km north of Westlands and the CBD. The site is 3 km from the Northern and Eastern bypass junctions and 5 km from the Thika highway. ALP North is designed as a multi-tenant facility with space available from 2,000sqm upwards.
