Dallas’ Mary Kay Inc., one of the world’s top beauty brands, announced today it will build new $100 million global manufacturing and research and development in Lewisville.

The announcement follows an intensive internal evaluation to determine whether to update Mary Kay Inc.’s current manufacturing operations in Dallas or construct a new facility to house both manufacturing and R&D. The details and exact location of the site are not being disclosed pending closing of the property purchase.

“We are committed to the latest in technological innovation and Mary Kay’s new facility will be on the leading edge of design, construction and production,” said David Holl, president and CEO for Mary Kay Inc. “Our analysis identified a site in Lewisville as the optimal location for our new facility that will enable us to continue to provide the highest quality skin care and color cosmetics for our more than 3.5 million independent sales force members worldwide.”

The criteria for selecting the new site included employee and logistical considerations, as well as proximity to the company’s other local facilities, including its global headquarters in Addison, a distribution center in Carrollton and a warehouse facility in Dallas.

The iconic beauty company’s current global manufacturing and R&D facility opened on Regal Row in Dallas in 1969. Today, the 420,000 square feet facility produces up to 1.1 million units of in demand made-in-America products per day, of which 57 percent are exported to Mary Kay Inc.’s international markets.

With 3.5 million Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants and $4 billion in global annual sales, Mary Kay is one of the best-known beauty brands in the world. They are also know for their iconic pink Cadillacs given to their top sales consultants.
