At a ceremony presided by New Jersey State Senator Tom Kean Jr. and Berkeley Heights, NJ Mayor David A. Cohen, L’Oréal USA broke ground last month for a new state-of the-art facility at Connell Corporate Park in Berkeley Heights, NJ.
The new building, which is scheduled to open in 2009, will house approximately 400 L’Oréal USA employees and will function as L’Oréal USA’s New Jersey headquarters. The L’Oréal USA corporate headquarters will remain in New York.
According to the company, the new facility will enable L’Oréal USA to bring together under one roof groups of employees who are currently sited in different New Jersey locations, allowing for improved communication and more efficient work practices.
“These new offices represent our commitment to providing our employees with an atmosphere that is open, respectful and that fosters creativity and innovation,” said Laurent Attal, president and chief executive officer, L’Oréal USA. “L’Oréal’s success relies on our ability to build for the future in a way that meets needs.”
The new facility will also have an environmentally-friendly focus with an emphasis on sustainable development. The open-plan design will maximize natural light and the use of raw materials while minimizing the effect on the environment.
