ingredients PLUS has relocated its headquarters from Lakeville, New York, to an 11,000 square foot office in Rochester, New York. In moving, the company is able to centralise key roles supporting its nationwide business operations including sales, finance, human resources, information technology, customer service and the executive team.
The company has said it will continue to invest in its 125,000 square foot manufacturing, processing and logistics hub in Lakeville which serves the Northeast in the US.
Relocating its headquarters aligns with ingredients PLUS’ growth strategy, focusing on organic growth and diversification. By leveraging the expanded space and access to a wider talent pool, the company 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,” said Erin Johnson, Senior Vice President of Organizational Strategy & Development for ingredients PLUS. “In addition to facilitating the centralisation 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 that embodies our unique brand.”
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, Pennsylvania, plant. The centralised 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,” added Johnson. “We believe this move will enable us to work more effectively together and continue delivering exceptional service to our customer.”
On 7 June ingredients PLUS celebrated its 40th anniversary with an employee appreciation event at its Lakeville plant where the company first began operating on 10 June, 1983.
