every welding and cutting application, and serves as its world headquarters.  The property was completed in two phases in 1970 and 2016 and features clear heights between 18 and 36 feet, 19 dock-high doors, one drive-in door, 200-foot truck courts and less than 15 percent office finish.  Situated on 30.08 acres at 2800 Airport Road in Denton, the property is within the Northwest Dallas industrial market and located near the intersection of Interstates 35 East and 35 West.

The investment advisory team comprised members of the HFF Industrial team, including managing director Adam Herrin and director Stephen Bailey, and the HFF Net Lease team, including senior managing director Mark West and senior managing director Coler Yoakam.
