Bioworld Merchandising, a global manufacturer and distributor of licensed apparel and accessories, has signed a new industrial lease totaling 123,844 square feet at 2650 Rental Car Drive in Irving, Texas.
Transwestern principal John Fulton and associate Clayton Johnson provided tenant advisory services on behalf of Bioworld, with additional support from principal Nora Hogan and senior vice president Jordan Wade. Steve Trese and Steve Koldyke with CBRE represented the building owner.
“This desired and central location in DFW Airport and convenient access to Bioworld’s existing employee base were integral reasons in choosing to expand operations here,” said Fulton. “Outgrowing the current business space, excelling in the e-commerce industry throughout 2020, and the benefits of being on airport property were compelling reasons for Bioworld to expand locally.”
Founded in 1999 in Irving, privately held Bioworld is a leading global manufacturer of licensed apparel, accessories and home goods. Bioworld partners with the world’s most iconic creators and brands to bring pop culture to life, all to create deeper connections between fans and the items they love.
According to Transwestern’s recent Industrial Market Report, Dallas-Fort Worth delivered a record amount of new industrial space and is on a trajectory to set another record in 2021. In 2020, Transwestern completed a similarly sized transaction on airport property, with the relocation of Heritage Auctions.
