SEGRO is a UK Real Estate Investment Trust ('REIT'), and a leading owner, asset manager and developer of modern warehousing, light industrial property, as well as of higher value uses such as offices and data centres. We own or manage 5.3 million square metres of space in £5.2 billion of assets (our share of which totals £4.1 billion), serving 1,250 customers from a range of industry sectors. Our properties are located around major conurbations and at key transportation hubs across eight European countries, principally in the UK, France, Germany and Poland.
In the UK, we have a leading market position in Heathrow, with £0.7 billion of assets (including our share of joint venture assets) in some of the most sought after airside and off-airport locations. We have a £0.6 billion portfolio at Park Royal and Greenford in West London, which has become a primary focus for businesses seeking 'urban logistics' space to service Central London. We also own the £1.0 billion Slough Trading Estate, which is a well-established, modern commercial centre in the Thames Valley and which has also grown to become one of Europe's largest data centre hubs. In Continental Europe, we have £1.2 billion of assets, predominantly comprising logistics warehousing and light industrial assets concentrated in attractive sub-markets such as the Ile de France region around Paris, which shares similar characteristics to Greater London, the Rhine Rhür region in Germany and key markets in Poland.
