Mary Kay has broken ground on a new 480,000 square foot manufacturing, research and development facility in Lewisville, Texas. The US direct sales giant chose to start work exactly 53 years after the company was launched.
The ceremony was attended by Mary Kay’s executive leadership team as well as representatives from building designers Jacobs Engineering, general contractor Beck Construction, members of the Denton County Commissioners Court, the City of Lewisville City Council and Mayor Rudy Durham.
“The city of Lewisville is thrilled to welcome Mary Kay as it breaks ground on the company’s newest facility in the heart of north Texas,” said Lewisville Mayor Rudy Durham. “As a recreational and business hub of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, Lewisville is a perfect fit with an iconic hometown brand such as Mary Kay. We look forward to partnering on this exciting and innovative vision for Mary Kay’s new US-based global manufacturing and R&D facility.”
The new building will support Mary Kay’s mission to become a top 5 global beauty brand, producing skin care, color cosmetics and fragrances for its 3.5 million independent consultants worldwide.
“Our company was founded in Dallas 53 years ago today and we are proud of our continued commitment to north Texas and products made in America,” said David Holl, President and Chief Executive Officer for Mary Kay. “We are committed to the latest in technological innovation and Mary Kay’s new manufacturing and R&D operations will be on the leading edge of design and production. With the construction of this new facility, we will continue to produce best-in-the-industry products that our independent sales force members sell to Mary Kay brand lovers around the world.”
