CBRE Industrial Services represents the largest industrial services platform in the world—with real estate professionals in all significant markets throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America.

 In addition to its core competency, the group is highly organized and networked, positioned to leverage the collective knowledge and experience of all of its industrial professionals. It is this power—along with the might of the industry’s most complete global platform—that we bring our clients every day.

With a specific focus on industrial properties and a proven track record of success, Industrial Services is known for its creative, out-of-the-box thinking and project implementation programs. We strive to live in our clients’ world and speak their language. We read their trade publications, attend their industry events and analyze the dynamics of the industrial real estate market in the context of their  business. Our goal is to be much more than a broker. We want to be an advocate, advisor and resource.


Because manufacturing, warehouse and distribution portfolios are often multi-market and cross-border, communication and collaboration among our professionals are essential. Intent on delivering the best real estate solutions for our clients, we have internal reports, shared databases and regular conference calls and meetings where our professionals share best practices, discuss emerging trends and devise strategies. In addition, our global technology platform connects our people to their counterparts in all corners of the world.

This real-time network of expertise is augmented by comprehensive databases of proprietary and third-party market information and research. It all combines to empower our people—and our clients—with the information they need to anticipate market opportunities, seize the competitive advantage, achieve unprecedented speed to market and execute the best-possible real estate strategies.
