Sweetener Products Sells Kent Washington Warehouse to Black Creek Group via Brokers NAI Capital and NAI Puget Sound Properties

VERNON, Calif., July 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- With the assistance of brokers from NAI Capital and NAI Puget Sound Properties offices, Sweetener Products has entered a multi-year sell-and-lease back agreement with Black Creek Group, a Denver-based real estate investment manager and development firm, for its Kent, Washington warehouse location.

Remarking on the short duration from listing to deal completion, Sweetener Products CEO Joe Tack said: "I am grateful for my relationship with Philip 'Ted' Attalla and Arie Salomon and am pleased by their efforts to quickly secure the sell and leaseback deal.  This transaction enables Sweetener Products to realize considerable return on our well-timed investment while maintaining our Pacific Northwest presence to service our customers, growing regional demand and increasing profitability."

Numerous real estate investment funds competed for the well-located, rail-served warehouse.  "We selected Black Creek Group as their offer best fits Sweetener Products' needs," said Tack.  "Not only are the terms attractive, but also Black Creek Group's professionalism and property management expertise gave us confidence that they will be a responsible landlord."

The deal closed earlier this month.
