Sunglasses maker Oakley expands in SoCal

Signs lease for warehouse under construction

ProLogis has pre-leased approximately 290,000 square feet of distribution space in Ontario, Calif., to Oakley Inc., a producer of sunglasses, goggles and prescription eyewear.

Oakley’s new distribution facility will be located at Crossroads Business Park, a master-planned park ProLogis is developing. The facility is targeted for completion in the first half of 2007.

“We’re pleased to be working with ProLogis to expand our worldwide distribution network,” said Chris Veit, director of operations, Oakley Inc., in a statement “Given our current strategic initiatives and anticipated growth, we expect that this expansion, which is a combination of new space and a reconfiguration of existing space, will help us maximize our distribution operations.”
