Elevation Labs is a leading formulator and manufacturer of innovative skin care, hair care and color cosmetics for the world’s leading prestige beauty brands. The company is comprised of three divisions, Elevation Labs Idaho, Los Angeles and Colorado, which were previously Northwest Cosmetic Laboratories LLC, Dream Team Beaute LLC and Colorado Quality Products LLC, respectively. As part of this purchase, Elevation Labs Colorado will combine its Aurora and Englewood locations under one roof, located on Havana Street in Denver. This move is expected to be completed by the fall of 2020.
With more than 160,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehouse space, this move will nearly double the capacity of Elevation Labs Colorado, according to the company. The new facility also comes with large-scale, state-of-the-art equipment, including multiple large CIP compounding tanks, automated high-speed filling lines and fork-lifts. According to the company, this additional space and equipment will enable Elevation Labs Colorado to significantly increase its capacity and better serve its customers, many of whom operate in the rapidly growing natural and organic space.
Elevation Labs will retain 30 skilled employees from the new facility and work to quickly onboard them to the quality, ownership and “Phenomenal Customer Experience” culture for which the company is becoming famous, according to company executives.
“This is a great opportunity to expand our footprint in the beauty space,” explained Elevation Labs CEO and President Michael Hughes. “We are committed to serve our customers with the highest quality product, with on-time delivery and customer service levels we believe are benchmark in the industry.”
Elevation Labs has recently committed to having all of its facilities powered by 100% renewable energy, beginning Jan. 1, 2020 and has said that this will include the new facility in Denver. With three locations, 400,000 square feet of capacity and over 50 years of combined experience, Elevation Labs offers comprehensive innovation and contract manufacturing solutions for the prestige personal care and beauty markets. The company's diverse portfolio of advanced manufacturing technologies and product capabilities ensures that it can serve a comprehensive range of customer needs, from trend-setting pressed powder to specialized sunscreens or organic hair care. Additionally, Elevation Labs has recently expanded its natural and organic capabilities, and both Idaho and Colorado are NSF Organic Certified.
