Comments: Hain Celestial recently moved its worldwide headquarters to Lake Success, NY, a historic site that served as the headquarters of the United Nations prior to the construction of its permanent site in New York City.
In many ways, Hain is akin to the UN, housing a wide range of organic and natural brands across beauty and food).
With nearly 90,000 square feet in the new headquarters, the company consolidated some of its operations from other locations in the US into this site, including the personal care research and development.
“Twenty years ago, I founded Hain Celestial as a start-up company on Long Island with a handful of employees. As a proud, resident New Yorker, I am pleased to be increasing our commitment to the region with the expansion of our international corporate headquarters complete with state-of-the-art sustainable features,” said Irwin Simon, president and CEO. “The design and layout of our new facility will provide us with a nurturing environment to foster the next level of growth for the company. Our new in-house research and development capability will create products that can be sold all over the world.
Additionally, our commitment to innovative organic and natural products that consumers are increasingly seeking out should benefit our customers, consumers, employees and shareholders as well as provide New York State and Nassau County with a stable employer and employee base committed to a greater good as we all recognize the benefit of maintaining A Healthier Way of Life.”
