Ingredients PLUS has relocated its headquarters from Lakeville, N.Y., to an 11,000-sq.-ft. office in Rochester, N.Y. This move allows the company to centralize key roles supporting its nationwide business operations, including sales, finance, human resources, information technology, customer service and the executive team. Ingredients PLUS says it will continue investing in its 125,000-sq.-ft. manufacturing, processing, and logistics hub in Lakeville, which serves the Northeast.
Relocating its headquarters aligns with ingredients PLUS’s growth strategy, which focuses on organic growth and diversification. By leveraging the expanded space and access to a broader talent pool, ingredients PLUS aims to strengthen its position as a provider of food ingredient solutions for its target market.
“As we keep growing across the U.S. and diversifying our product offerings, the need for added space and talent drove our decision to relocate our headquarters,” says Erin Johnson, senior vice president of organizational strategy & development for ingredients PLUS. “In addition to facilitating the centralization of our executive and support functions, the move allowed us to renovate the administrative space at our Lakeville operation, creating a modern and open environment.”
From the Rochester headquarters, ingredients PLUS CEO Doug Wagner and the executive team will oversee business strategy, sales and customer support for the company’s 60-acre Lakeville facility and 30-acre Landisville, Pa., plant. The centralized approach enables streamlined operations and enhanced collaboration among team members.
“Relocating our headquarters to Rochester provides an expanded employee pool, enabling us to fill critical positions with top talent,” Johnson adds.
On June 7, ingredients PLUS celebrated its 40th anniversary with an employee appreciation event at its Lakeville plant where the company began operations on June 10, 1983.
