Building Tomorrow Today

Family-Owned, Listed & Pan-European. 

We are a pan-European owner, manager and developer of high-quality logistics and semi-industrial real estate. We operate a fully integrated business model with capabilities and long-standing expertise across the value chain, from land acquisition to development and asset and property management. With origins as a construction company, today our strategic focus is on the development of large multi-tenant business parks. We are a family-owned business operating in 17 European countries. 

We build to create value

As a family-owned business we think across generations. We operate in a responsible and sustainable manner, striking the right balance between results, tradition and innovation.  Our business is driven by prosperous, long-term relationships. We strive to create value and be a trusted partner to our customers and the communities in which we operate.  

 

 

In our efforts to serve our customers and communities best, we are guided by three principles: local presence, respect and responsiveness. That means we have a deep and thorough understanding of markets and regional specifics and respect the individual needs of both our customers and our communities. By being on-the-ground and close to our customers as well as to the communities in which we operate, we ensure that we can react quickly to serve their needs. We listen to them and respond to their individual needs through creative solutions and a collaborative spirit. We do this by challenging ourselves and adapting to the changing demands of our industry every day. 

We focus on prime locations

The logistics sector is undergoing rapid changes. As E-commerce continues to reshape consumption patterns, businesses and third-party logistics providers are prioritizing the delivery process within their business model.  

With a careful and sophisticated selection process for our land bank, we are uniquely positioned to serve our customers who are looking for a location in the vicinity of major European cities with direct access to main traffic lines, offering easy public access as well as 24/7 operations.

Our Markets

VGP and its Joint Venture Partners

In order to sustain its growth over the medium term, VGP entered into several Joint Ventures with well-known established investors. These joint venture structures allow VGP to partially recycle its initial invested capital when completed projects are acquired by the respective joint ventures and allow VGP to re-invest the sales proceeds in the continued expansion of the development pipeline, including the further expansion of the land bank, thus allowing VGP to concentrate on its core development activities.

Having partners with a long-term investment vision and similar views on constructing a sustainable portfolio has been key in the selection of our Joint Venture partners.

VGP Foundation

Our mission is to encourage nature conservation, have impact on local communities through social projects and conserve and protect Europe’s cultural heritage.

Through the VGP Foundation, we are helping to improve quality of life across European communities, not just in the ones in which VGP operates its logistics and industrial parks.
