Canada’s Landlocked Port Continues to Grow

WINNIPEG—This city’s ambitious plan to become North America’s biggest “inland port” just received a 12,000-sq.ft. show of support from the Houston-based Goodman Manufacturing Group. 

Goodman just opened 12,000-sq-ft worth of warehouse, showroom and office space at Brookside Business Park, one of CenterPort’s main industrial developments.

CentrePort is a 20,000-acre transportation hub and Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ), that promises unique access to tri-modal transportation (road, rail and air). Located next to Winnipeg’s James Armstrong Richardson International Airport, CentrePort provides companies easy access to major national and international road, rail and sea corridors and gateways. 

CentrePort first opened in 2009 and as an FTZ offers tax and cost savings to foreign investors looking for new ways to bring products to North America.

Goodman is a member of HVAC giant Daikin Industries and its facility will be the first tenant of a new, 44,000-sq-ft multi-tenant building that was recently completed by Calgary-based Olexa Developments, the developer of the 150-acre industrial park.

The facility is CentrePort’s first-ever speculative building, an important milestone in efforts to increase the industrial capacity of the zone.

“Increasing lease options on spec shows investor and developer confidence in what we are building here at CentrePort,” said Diane Gray, president and CEO of CentrePort. “Congratulations to Mike and his team at Goodman on their new operation. We are thrilled to have Goodman expanding into our marketplace and calling CentrePort home.”
