Sportswear
giant ASICS Oceania called in several high-profile sponsors to open its
landmark Australian headquarters at Marsden Park, about 50 kilometres north
west of the Sydney CBD.

Rugby stars Cooper Cronk and Kurtley Beale, with tennis player Stam Stosur, netballer Caitlin Bassett, high-jumper Brandon Starc, and senior ASICS executives, unveiled the 5.7 hectare Richmond Road complex last week.

The
base includes a 4000 square metre contemporary office with conferencing
facilities and a gym, a 24,960 sqm warehouse and distribution centre and a 1500
sqm retail factory outlet.

The 5.7 hectare site is configured with an office, warehouse, retail factory outlet, 4500 sqm playing field, gym and Japanese inspired garden.

Oceania staff also have private use of a 4500 sqm sports playing field and
Japanese inspired garden.

Part
of the 256-hectare Sydney Business Park, the facility was penned by
London-based WDC Design, with local outfits, Reid Capital and Siren Design.

It
was constructed by Richard Crookes and Renascent.

The contemporary office has a mezzanine break-out area.

ASICS
Oceania employees, retailers, business partners, as well as representatives from
Sydney Business Park and Blacktown City Council were also at the launch.

The sports brand’s managing director, Mark Brunton, said the office, warehouse and retail space allows for future growth and greater operating efficiency, “enabling us to better service our retail partners and customers across Australia”.

“A
wide range of sustainability measures were incorporated including photo-voltaic
solar electricity, energy smart metering and monitoring, energy efficient LED skylights
to enhance natural lighting, performance glazing and insulated wall panels,
stormwater quality improvement devices and water efficient fixtures,” the
occupier said.

Other
Sydney Business Park occupiers include Aldi, Axalta Coating Systems, Bunnings,
Costco, Dulux, IKEA, Lindt, Linfox and Toll.

Sydney
Business Park’s sales & leasing director Matt Foldes – who negotiated ASICS
Oceania lease – said businesses were attracted to the precinct’s master-planned
road network, close proximity to the Westlink M7 Motorway, the ‘campus- style’ design
of buildings, “as well as excellent amenity for staff, customers and visitors
to enjoy.”

“The
opportunity for companies such as ASICS to co-locate various functions
including retail, office and warehouse on a single site is one of the unique
features of the estate and we are well placed to accommodate the commercial
needs of these large and growing businesses.”

Sydney
Business Park development director Owen Walsh added that the estate is about a
quarter developed.

“Upon
completion the area is set to create some 30,000 new direct jobs for Western
Sydney, making it one of the state’s largest employment growth centres and
economic drivers.

“The
major new retailers and businesses who have opened here have created thousands
of new job opportunities and that has resulted in new residential communities
to be developed,” Mr Walsh added.

“The
next five years will see even more dramatic transformation with commercial
office towers, as well as a new 123-room hotel and the commencement of the
Marsden Park Town Centre.

“By
2025, the surrounding North West Growth Centre is expected to support 177,000
new residents and 61,900 new homes,” the executive said.

Sporting identities Cooper Cronk, Sam Stosur, Caitlin Bassett, Brandon Starc and Kurtley Beale joined ASICS Oceania executives to open the Marsden Park headquarters last week.
The factory outlet includes a mock starting line and test track with different surface types.
