(IDAHO FALLS, ID) — Idaho Falls based Melaleuca: The Wellness Company, announced plans for a new 371-thousand-square foot home office. This new facility will house ALL of Melaleuca’s international and domestic operations except for manufacturing and distribution. This is the most recent facility to be added to the company’s 195-acre campus just west of Exit 113 on St. John’s Road. The new building will cover over 43-acres of the 195 acre campus.
Having outgrown its current home office on South Yellowstone, the need for expansion prompted CEO Frank VanderSloot to seek out a way to consolidate all of Melaleuca’s operational facilities around Idaho Falls into one facility.
The new building will house all of Melaleuca’s international operations plus marketing, human resources, business development, IT development, data processing, web development, regional management, finance and accounting, administration, research and development, a state-of-the-art video studio, and a 500-person call center. It will also be home to the company’s employee services including a day care center, workout facilities and employee restaurant and concierge service center.
A 17,000 square foot events center will be Southeast Idaho’s largest event facility and accommodate meetings for over 900 people and will be available for other companies to use for corporate events.
Melaleuca expects the new building to be ready by Spring of 2014.
