The US colour cosmetics company has settled on a site in Lewisville
US cosmetics company Mary Kay has announced plans to open a new $100m manufacturing and R&D facility in Lewisville in Texas.
The company had been toying with the idea of revamping its current manufacturing site in Dallas but announced that “after thorough research” it had settled on a location in Lewisville. The company is currently not revealing details of the exact location of the site until after the property purchase is finalised.
David Holl, President and Chief Executive Officer for Mary Kay, said: “We are committed to the latest in technological innovation and Mary Kay’s new facility will be on the leading edge of design, construction and production. Our analysis identified a site in Lewisville as the optimal location for our new facility that will enable us to continue to provide the highest quality skin care and color cosmetics for our more than 3.5 million independent sales force members worldwide.”
The company chose the Lewisville location bearing a number of factors in mind including: employees, logistics and proximity to other Mary Kay facilities. Mary Kay’s pre-existing 420,000sqft facility opened in Dallas in 1969. It produces up to 1.1 million units per day.
