Industrial Advisory specialists at Colliers and supply chain experts at Argon & Co have announced an industry-first collaboration to provide a full end-to-end industrial advisory service across Australia and New Zealand (ANZ).
The partnership will see leading real estate professionals at Colliers working collaboratively with Argon & Co to maximise the value of supply chains, technology, automation and the resultant property for real estate occupiers.
This joint venture is a continuation of the relationship initially formed by Pollen Consulting Group, before they joined the Argon & Co group in June 2022.
Paul Eastwood, former CEO of Pollen Consulting Group and now Managing Partner at Argon & Co said the team are thrilled to build on the partnership with Colliers and states “This is an exciting partnership for Argon & Co.

Argon & Co will work closely with Colliers to understand each client’s specific needs and design an appropriate solution. This could be as simple as a change in material handling equipment or racking layout, or a total network design.
Colliers’ role will be to provide crucial property information and negotiation skills to secure new facilities or renegotiate existing facilities, delivery of the project can also be completed via the company’s Project Leaders business. Argon & Co’s role in the partnership will be to provide initial analysis, insights and advice to ensure the best outcome for the clients utilising their expertise across manufacturing, warehousing and logistics.
