Direct sales giant Mary Kay has earmarked a new site in Lewisville, North Texas, as the location for its new $100 million manufacturing site.
Following the announcement in October that they were to build a new R&D manufacturing facility, the company scouted numerous locations before deciding on the Lewisville site. Reasons behind the site choice included employee and logistical issues, such as public transport, employee drive time, and proximity to the company’s existing facilities.
All 600 manufacturing and R&D employees in the existing R&D facilities will move to the new site, which is said to begin construction in July next year and be completed in early 2018. It is said the new facility will allow the company to develop more products, which in turn will help them to hire more staff.
