OAK BROOK, IL – CenterPoint Properties is pleased to announce a 250,575 square foot build-to-suit expansion for DS Containers, Inc.’s building at DuPage Business Center in West Chicago, Illinois. This expansion will bring the building to 550,853 total square feet. Rich Brolly and Gerard Keating, SIOR CCIM, represented DS Containers in the transaction, while Dominic Carbonari and Frank Griffin of JLL represented CenterPoint.

DS Containers sits alongside New Continuum and Simpson Manufacturing Company at DuPage Business Center. The business park features diverse communication and utility infrastructure, fully improved sites with off-site detention, and adjacency to key transportation routes.

The build-to-suit expansion will house the company’s manufacturing operations – including a 10-ton crane – and accommodate its metal can production. The additional space and increased roof and floor loads will enable the company to grow its current capabilities while providing room to expand manufacturing further.

“CenterPoint looks forward to adding on to DS Containers’ recently completed facility. We are pleased to be able to accommodate their growing operations,” said Ed Harrington, Senior Vice President, Development of CenterPoint. “It is great to immediately follow up a development with an expansion and to see DuPage Business Center provide DS Containers the opportunity to keep expand their operation.”

DS Containers manufactures two-piece polymer-coated steel aerosol cans and offers overcaps, bag on valves, liquid pour overcaps, and polymer-coated steel products for aerosols and liquid/viscous products. The build-to-suit expansion features will increase the building office space to 25,183 square feet, 22 exterior dock doors and 139 car parking spaces across 25 acres.

“We are excited to work with CenterPoint to grow our operational needs,” said John Duffy, Vice President and CFO of DS Containers. “The new facility will have thickened floor slabs and other sufficient infrastructure in place to help us enhance our business.”

CenterPoint is the exclusive developer at DuPage Business Center and has master-planned more than 5.5 Million SF of proposed industrial facilities on approximately 500-acres of developable land within the park.
