Welspun Group Promoters, through a closely held family office investment has acquired majority stake in warehousing platform - One Industrial Spaces, an integrated fund, development and asset management organization focused on the warehousing sector in India.

“The warehousing sector presents an attractive investment proposition as it provides both development returns as well as stable long-term rental yields. Indian consumers demand same day delivery both online and offline, which has resulted in an increased strategic back-end storage requirement. We have been looking to enter this space as warehousing demand is poised to grow aggressively. I am confident that under the leadership of Anshul Singhal, Welspun One is well placed to scale this business,” B.K. Goenka, Chairman, Welspun Group said.

One Industrial Spaces was founded in July 2019 by Anshul Singhal, Former Embassy Industrial Parks-Warburg Pincus, CEO.

The first project under the new platform will be a 3 million square feet project in MMR. "Welspun One will continue to build its core business of fund, development and asset man- agement, which includes raising funds from domestic and foreign institutional investors to invest in the industrial asset class in India in an organized, transparent and institutional manner," the company said.

Post the acquisition, One Industrial Spaces will be re-branded as 'Welspun One Logistics Parks'. Welspun One will also be the exclusive development manager for a portfolio of ready land assets owned by the promoters in their personal capacity with an estimated value of US$ 50 million and development potential of over 5 million square feet of Grade-A industrial warehousing space.

“We are excited to have the backing of the Welspun Group promoters to grow the vision of the company. Currently, a big challenge for existing players in this space is the land acquisition and approvals. As Welspun One, we are uniquely positioned to address these challenges. We can now leverage their deep understanding and experience in buying large land parcels and successfully executing millions of square feet of industrial and infrastructure projects pan India. We believe this will meaningfully improve the overall value proposition for our stake- holders. Our goal is to emerge as India’s most preferred warehousing company,” Anshul Singhal Managing Director, Welspun One.
