doTerra Expands Corporate Campus in Utah
- Aug 25, 2017
doTerra, a rapidly growing direct sales Utah-based company that produces essential oils and other wellness products, is breaking ground on new office, medical and fulfillment space and expanding its manufacturing facility.
It’s the third phase in the company’s expansion within the Pleasant Grove and Lindon, Utah, area and will add about 950 jobs over the next three years. When the construction is completed, doTerra will have more than 2,950 employees in Utah and nearly 970,000 square feet of office, medical, manufacturing and fulfillment space spanning 100 acres. Founded in 2008, doTerra ships products to customers in over 120 countries.
“Expanding our campus provides additional opportunities for research and growth so we can continue to lead the way to sourcing, testing, manufacturing and distributing essential oils and other healthy living products for customers around the world,” David Stirling, founding executive, chairman & CEO, said in a prepared statement.
The company is constructing a 67,055-square-foot office building for an additional 400 employees. It will also have a childcare center that will serve up to 84 children, including infants and toddlers, and is due to be completed in fall 2018.
A 39,500-square-foot medical clinic is slated for completion in spring 2019. It will initially serve doTerra employees and Wellness Advocates, its independent direct-sales distributors, but will eventually be opened to the community. The building, which will focus on integrative care and accommodate 100 employees and five medical doctors, will be designed to expand as need demands with the potential of adding two more buildings.
“Health and wellness are the core of our business and we’re pleased to create a clinic where we can validate the medical benefits of oils with modern medicine,” Stirling added.
The company is adding nearly 200,000 square feet its manufacturing facility, which will have almost 324,000 square feet when it’s finished in fall 2018. It will have space for 200 more employees.
A 270,000-square-foot fulfillment center will be built on 32 acres along the 1-15 corridor in Lindon, Utah, near the Pleasant Grove exit. Although it is expected to house nearly 250 new employees, it will be designed to use advanced automation to fulfill orders from around the world.
It’s not the only news announced this month in Pleasant Grove. St. John Properties broke ground on Valley Grove, a 62-acre master-planned development that will have more than one million square feet of Class A office space, restaurant, retail and hospitality space.
Elsewhere in Utah, Biomerics and the Govenor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) announced in March it was building its corporate headquarters in Salt Lake City, after an estimated $39 million in capital investment. The medical device company intends to add up to 380 jobs to the community by 2025. The exact location of the new 200,000-square-foot property will be announced at a future date.
