Miami—KLX Inc.’s Aerospace Solutions Group has announced its signing of a build-to-suit lease for a new global headquarters and distribution hub totaling more than 500,000 square feet in Miami. The relocation and expansion of ASG’s facilities highlights South Florida as a growing logistics, trade and air transport hub.
The building will be located at the intersection of NW 107th Street and 97th Avenue between Florida’s Turnpike and I-75. It will include two floors of office space with the ability to expand and a state-of-the-art storage and distribution area.
“Our new Miami headquarters will enhance our existing operations and assist with our ongoing recruiting efforts.” John Cuomo, vice president and general manager with KLX’s Aerospace Solutions Group, said in prepared remarks.
Matthew Cheezem, managing director with JLL, represented KLX in the lease transaction. Economic incentives were secured by the office of Florida Governor Rick Scott, Enterprise Florida, Miami-Dade County, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity and the Beacon Council.
“Florida businesses like KLX are incredible job creators in our state and we will continue to do all we can to cut taxes and reduce regulations to help businesses create more opportunities for Floridians,” said Governor Rick Scott.
“Attracting and retaining U.S. and global headquarters in South Florida is critical to our economic future, added Cheezem. “KLX will be among the first companies in our latest master-planned business park, which will ultimately include eight million square feet of new, Class-A warehouses and industrial facilities,” concluded Dan Marcus, executive vice president of development with Flagler Global Logistics.
