Mary Kay Inc. to build in Lewisville

Mary Kay Inc. will build its new $100 million global manufacturing and research and development operations facility in Lewisville. The selection of Lewisville comes after several months of internal evaluation by the beauty company and an exhaustive examination of potential sites throughout North Texas.


“An exceptional company has chosen an exceptional city,” said Rudy Durham, Mayor of Lewisville. “Mary Kay has deep roots in North Texas and we look forward to contributing to its continued global success.”

Mary Kay Inc. says Lewisville was chosen because of its proximity to the company’s other local facilities, like its global headquarters in Addison, a distribution center in Carrollton and a warehouse facility in Dallas.

“Our analysis identified the site in Lewisville as the optimal location for our new facility that will enable us to continue to provide the highest quality skin care and color cosmetics for our more than 3.5 million independent sales force members worldwide,“ said David Holl, President and Chief Executive Officer for Mary Kay Inc.

This new facility signals a major advancement in several of the 9 Big Moves that make up the Lewisville 2025 plan. Mary Kay Inc. has a focus on a healthy internal culture as well as sustainability and environmental responsibility with its current facility using 100% renewable energy and it has achieved a zero landfill site status. The Lewisville 2025 plan is the future vision set forth by our citizens for our centennial in 2025.

“We’re excited about working with Mary Kay because we feel the company’s culture and goals are consistent with those of the City of Lewisville,” said Mayor Durham.

Mary Kay Inc. believes its recognized global brand will expand Lewisville’s international and manufacturing footprints. Mary Kay Inc. is a top beauty brand in more than 35 markets around the world. It invests millions each year in research and development and conducts more than 500,000 tests each year to ensure its products meet stringent quality and safety standards.

Approximately 600 manufacturing and R&D employees will work at the new Lewisville facility.

Construction is set to begin in July of 2016. It is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2018.
