The Dedeaux Properties Legacy

Founded by legendary baseball coach and business icon Rod Dedeaux, Dedeaux Properties has enjoyed a rich history of success throughout the years.

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.

Mr. Dedeaux was also a successful businessman and used his abundance of energy and business acumen to found Dart in 1938. Over the years the company grew to be a nationwide logistic firm, offering third-party facility management, warehousing, e-commerce fulfillment and transportation with over 1,000 employees.

Today at Dedeaux Properties

Over time, Mr. Dedeaux and his management team began acquiring industrial properties for the use by the company. As the company evolved and the needs of customers 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 with the goal of serving the needs of our clients.

Today – true to our history – Dedeaux Properties has continued to construct and/or acquire buildings for many of our customers. Over time, the business has progressed into speculative development and sale/leaseback opportunities in order to allow for continued growth.
