Dedeaux Properties, LLC. was founded by legendary and colorful baseball coach and business icon Rod Dedeaux. Coach Dedeaux’s exploits on the baseball diamond have been well-documented and he was best known for leading the University of Southern California to 11 National Championships, coaching two Olympic teams in 1964 and 1984, and being named College Baseball Coach of the Century. However, Mr. Dedeaux also used his abundance of energy and business acumen to found Dart in 1938 which grew over the years to a nationwide logistics firm offering third party facility management, warehousing, e-commerce fulfillment and transportation with over 1,000 employees.
Over the past 60 years, Mr. Dedeaux and his management team began acquiring industrial properties for the use by the company. As the company evolved and needs changed, Dart began to lease a portion of its buildings to key customers as it acquired additional buildings to suit the needs of a growing enterprise.
As the years progressed, many customers and tenants began requesting newer or larger facilities in different locations and Dedeaux Properties was formed… always based on servicing the needs of its clients.
True to its history, Dedeaux Properties has continued to construct and/or acquire buildings for many of its customers. And the business has progressed into speculative development and sale/leaseback opportunities in order to continue to grow the business.
