XYMOGEN proved that there really is no place like home as we opened our new global headquarters in Orlando, FL, in April 2012. The complex’s design strategically weaves a ultramodern manufacturing and packaging system, merchandise center, full-service research laboratories, a warehouse, marketing studios, customer care, digital printing services, and administrative services under one massive roof.
More than 40,000 square feet are dedicated to manufacturing and packaging, and this also includes a 4,000-square-foot full-service laboratory to test all raw materials and goods.
The expanding success of XYMOGEN’s seminar series and tradeshow exhibitions motivated us to include our own conference center in the building. This will enable us to host educational programs in the facility year-round.
We are planning to achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification for our new headquarters. For a start, it offers “green” features such as parking spaces dedicated to energy efficient cars, and there is a no smoking policy.
From day one, founder Brian Blackburn’s business has been structured around core family values, and a happy and positive workplace. For that reason, the building design also includes spacious work areas, a 24-hour gymnasium, and a basketball court for the more than 150 employees.
The XYMOGEN work environment has always been Brian Blackburn’s first priority. He believes that the successful operation of a business pivots on nurturing and caring for employees. This philosophy continues today, nearly 25 years later.
