Press release – Neuilly-sur-Seine, Wednesday, November 15, 2023 – 5.45 pm

ARGAN delivered and is now renting a tri-temperature platform of 14,500 sq.m located in Mâcon for BACK EUROP FRANCE

Our real estate company, specializing in the development and rental of PREMIUM warehouses, has delivered a new building in Mâcon operated by BACK EUROP FRANCE, the French leading player in the distribution of bakery-pastry (boulangerie-pâtisserie), as part of a 12-year fixed-term lease.

A brand new 14,500 sq.m logistics building was delivered to BACK EUROP FRANCE’s teams in the municipality of St-Jean-sur-Veyle (01), near the A40 French highway. ARGAN developed this site, which will be operated by BACK EUROP FRANCE as part of a long-term commercial lease for a 12-year fixed-term period.

In the span of 30 years, BACK EUROP FRANCE has become the leading player in the distribution of raw materials, supplies and small equipment for food professionals, and more specifically for those who specialize in bakery & pastry (boulangerie & pâtisserie).

Delivered as a turnkey site, this building is divided into three areas: ambient air, positive cold and negative cold, thus providing BACK EUROP FRANCE with the ability to manage all its catalogue of products on a single platform.

St-Jean-sur-Veyle that is directly located on the A40 French highway, very near Mâcon and the A6 French highway, is a prominent location to develop transports and logistics businesses. ARGAN, which is already the owner of a 60,000 sq.m building operated by CARREFOUR on a land portion nearby, is thus strengthening its presence on a PRIME logistics area, close to Lyon along the North-South « logistics backbone ».

As it is now the case for all ARGAN’s new developments, this site has the Aut0nom® label, i.e., “the warehouse that generates and uses its own green energy”. By installing a photovoltaic power station on the roof, in addition to batteries for storage, renewable and carbon-free energy can be generated and used on-site. Also, gas is banned, and heating is provided by a system that captures the heat resulting from cold-production infrastructures.

Our intention was to deliver a site that is a benchmark in terms of energy consumption, carbon footprint limitation and respect for biodiversity. These efforts and choices justify a BREEAM Very Good certification for this new ARGAN logistics platform.
