Brennan Investment Group, LLC, a private real estate investment firm that acquires, develops, and operates industrial facilities, and Arch Street Capital Advisors, LLC, a full service real estate investment and advisory firm, announced its 11th acquisition in its current single-tenant, net lease industrial aggregation venture. The transaction consists of the purchase, and simultaneous leaseback, to Wilbert Plastic Services of a 310,000 square foot facility located at 4221 Otter Lake Road in White Bear Lake, Minnesota.  Wilbert Plastic Services, headquartered in North Carolina, is a leading supplier of plastic injection-molded and heavy gauge thermoform products and assemblies. The building serves as the company’s largest thermoforming facility.

Kevin Brennan, Vice President of Acquisitions at Brennan Investment Group stated, “The Minneapolis market is one of the top industrial markets in the United States with a total inventory of over 332 million square feet and has seen 26 consecutive quarters of positive net absorption.”
