First tree celebration in Châteaudun (28)

VIRTUO plants the first tree in its V.PARK CHÂTEAUDUN (28). Construction of a 24,000 m2 turnkey facility for ALLTRICKS.

On Wednesday, November 23, 2022, Grégory BLOUIN, President of Virtuo Industrial Property and his teams; Mr. Hervé DEMAI, Deputy Prefect of Châteaudun and delegate of the Prefecture of Eure et Loire, Mr. Fabien VERDIER, in his capacity as President of the Community of Communes of Grand Châteaudun and Mayor of Châteaudun; Mr. Gary ANSSENS, CEO of ALLTRICKS; as well as co investor AXA IM Alts, met to officially lay the first tree of the new V. Park Châteaudun.

This next-generation logistics platform, with a total surface area of 24,000 m2, on which work began last summer, is located in the Parc d’Activités de la Bruyère, in the town of Châteaudun, in the Centre Val de Loire region, 50 km from Orléans. For this new project Virtuo targets a BREEAM Very Good certification as well as a Biodivercity® label. This project was developed to meet the needs of the company ALLTRICKS, which sells cycling products, as well as running gear and outdoor gear. The site is scheduled to be operational in the summer of 2023.

“We are very proud of this collaboration with Alltricks, which illustrates Virtuo’s ability to offer turnkey solutions, even when times are tough,” said Grégory Blouin, President of Virtuo.

“This building will give us the opportunity to carry out our expansion plans in France and abroad, focusing on our top performing categories—Bicycle, Running and Outdoor—and develop new activities such as second-hand products”, explains Gary Anssens, President of Alltricks. “I am proud to be part of this ambitious project which addresses the site’s environmental responsibility and will enhance the quality of our teams’ work. With a tool like this one, we are reinforcing our promise to deliver more than 2.5 million parcels a year in less than 24 hours,” adds Cyril Desloge, Alltricks’ Logistics Director.

Virtuo’s partners in this new V.Park includes AECO architect, Project Manager CLC engineering, AMO environmental ELAN, AXA IM Alts fund manager, Oudot & Associés Notary Office, BG2V Law Firm along with local companies for the construction.

“On top of developing a successful logistics real estate operation, this project marks a significant collaboration between two groups that share the same values and ambitions. Alltricks and Virtuo are united by their creativity, business acumen, ethics and transparency. We are thrilled to have been a part of their plans for growth”, says Grégory Loesel, Director of Development and Partner at Virtuo.
