The Company

Industrials REIT is a multi-let industrial property company listed on the London Stock Exchange and the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.  We own and operate a diversified portfolio of purpose built multi-let industrial (MLI) properties across the UK. We have offices in London and Stockport, and own and manage more than 100 industrial estates which are home to over 1,500 customers.

We have invested in a technology-driven market-leading operating platform called Industrials Hive to support the gradual digitalisation and improvement of our customer experience and to drive occupancy and income. This platform covers all elements of our business, from marketing through to leasing, and from property management through to finance. We use it to deliver value and growth opportunities for all our stakeholders.

We believe in The Power of Space. Space to work, to think, to evolve, to grow and to succeed.  We focus on delivering a quality experience for our customers by creating a straightforward, supportive, transparent and a frictionless process.

Our culture

We are a friendly team, where everyone receives a warm welcome in a sociable environment and where even the most senior members are approachable and accessible.

At Industrials, it is natural to be genuinely inclusive and supportive – understanding, encouraging and reassuring each other, and looking for ways to nurture and inspire colleagues when they need help. This is the basis of wellbeing within our organisation. We care, and we show we care.

A collaborative approach prevails, with an emphasis on trust, transparency, and accountability, supporting clear communication and effective co-operation. A problem shared is a problem halved. All our work is teamwork.

We take pride in what we do, showing resilience and determination when the going may get tough. We do what we say we will do, which earns us credibility, externally and internally.

In everything we do, we aim to be innovative, using imagination and forward thinking to develop original, progressive – even unconventional – projects and initiatives.

We are results-driven, always motivated to improve our performance and achieve the best possible outcome for us and our customers.

We often need to find new ways of working, which means we must be inquisitive – always learning new skills, gaining more knowledge and absorbing new ideas. This is how we grow and evolve, as individuals and as a business.

Above all, we are ambitious. We see clearly where we are heading and remain orientated towards our targets and goals.
