Mary Kay commits to new Texan manufacturing facility

Having explored several options, including renovating its current Dallas manufacturing and research center, direct sales giant Mary Kay has decided to construct a new facility in Dallas/Fort Worth to house its global manufacturing and R&D operations.

“After several years of double digit growth, our investment in a new manufacturing and R&D facility comes at a critical time and allows Mary Kay to continue production on the highest quality skin care and color cosmetics for our more than 3.5 million independent sales force members worldwide,” said David Holl, President and Chief Executive Officer for Mary Kay Inc. “Presently, approximately 75 percent of our business is overseas yet more than 50 percent of Mary Kay products produced at the Dallas manufacturing facility are exported to our international markets.”

The company is yet to settle on an exact location for its new facility, with several sites throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex under evaluation.
