VB Cosmetics Inc. has signed a 40,000 square-foot lease to expand and relocate their corporate headquarters, R&D and manufacturing operations in Chandler. The company will be moving into the Lotus Project, one of Chandler’s premier industrial developments, located near Kyrene Road and the Loop 202.
VB Cosmetics Inc. is a manufacturing company engaged in the creation and sale of cosmetics and personal care products. It is also the inventor of Dazzle Dry®, a quick-dry, award-winning and proprietary nail polish system that is revolutionizing the multi-billion dollar US nail salon and spa industries.
“VB Cosmetics is in a premier location for continued growth and success,” stated Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke. “We are thrilled they found a new home in Chandler that will allow them to take their innovative cosmetics enterprise to the next level.”
Construction for the project is expected to start immediately with VB Cosmetics targeting to be fully moved into their new headquarters, designed to efficiently process and manage materials, by April of 2021. This relocation and facility expansion will allow them to meet the increased product demands with new automation and continued innovation as they aim to grow their employee headcount from 50 employees to 120 over the next three years.
“It was important for us to not only keep the company growing here in Arizona, but specifically in Chandler where it all started, the City is most welcoming and where we have so many personal roots,” says Dr. Vivian Valenty, Founder of VB Cosmetics. “The new building at the Lotus Project truly is a symbol of the next phase of VB Cosmetics – one where our newly established and nurtured working community members can help each other be successful to create and enjoy opportunities and take the brand into the next level with manufacturing developments that will best serve both our local community and all customers nationally and globally equally.”
The award-winning Lotus Project was developed by Conor Commercial Real Estate and incorporates four Class A industrial buildings designed for advanced manufacturing and light industrial. The development is now 95% leased with the signing of VB Cosmetics. Phase II of the Lotus Project will commence shortly and will feature an additional three industrial buildings.
“The Lotus Project is the perfect fit for VB Cosmetics, and I’m confident that their business will thrive there,” commented Derek Buescher, Development Manager at Conor. “The development’s unique design matches VB Cosmetics’ innovative presence in the cosmetics industry, and the building’s location will provide numerous advantages to the business and its employees.”
