Mary Kay New Global Manufacturing and R&D Operations
After exhaustive examination of potential sites throughout North Texas, the company has now identified a plot of land in the city of Lewisville.
Mary Kay Inc., a top beauty brand and direct seller in more than 35 markets around the world, identified the city of Lewisville in Denton County as the future site of the company’s new $100 million global manufacturing and research and development (R&D) operations. The announcement follows an intensive internal evaluation to determine whether to update Mary Kay Inc.’s current manufacturing operations in Dallas or construct a new facility to house both manufacturing and R&D.
After thorough research, Mary Kay Inc. announced last month it will invest in a new global manufacturing and R&D facility. After exhaustive examination of potential sites throughout North Texas, the company has now identified a plot of land in the city of Lewisville. The details and exact location of the site are not being disclosed pending closing of the property purchase.
«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,» said David Holl, President and Chief Executive Officer for Mary Kay Inc. «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.»
«As we approach the status of a top five beauty brand globally and following several years of double digit growth, the new facility will support our company’s future needs,» said Holl. «Today, approximately 75 percent of our business is overseas and yet more than 50 percent of Mary Kay products produced at our current manufacturing facility are exported to our international markets. So, it’s essential that we continue to have state-of-the-art manufacturing and R&D facilities to produce the best-in-the-industry products to our independent sales force and ultimately to our Mary Kay brand lovers around the world.»
