iPort Deliverability

Founded in 2010 by Michael Hughes, Verdion is a real estate investor, developer and asset manager specialising in European industrial and logistics real estate.


From Central London headquarters and offices in Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Malmö, it has developed €800 million of high specification logistics and industrial space across Europe, including two 102,000 sq m customer fulfilment centres for Amazon in 2017. Its development pipeline stands at 450,000 sq m and it is continuing to acquire and control large areas of strategic development land to meet our clients’ needs.


Since 2013 it has created a €1 billion pan-European investment portfolio and are now seeking value-add and core properties, particularly opportunities to leverage our technical innovation and development expertise to increase investment returns.


But its core focus is the end-user experience. It works closely with occupier customers, drawing on detailed, sector-based expertise to understand and fulfil their requirements, developing, managing and investing in well-located, highly specified assets with a long-term commitment.
