Blendtec, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of blending equipment, is expanding their facilities by 100,100 square feet. The groundbreaking will take place on March 30, 2011 at 2:00 PM at Blendtec’s Orem Headquarters.
“The additional space will primarily be used for the manufacturing and assembly of Blendtec’s newest innovation, the Self Serve Smoothie Maker,” President David Beck said. This unique equipment allows consumers to make their own smoothie at the touch of a button. Blendtec believes this machine is the world’s first “Smoothie Shop in a Box.” The new facilities will also include a small medical clinic, complementing their existing fitness and massage center and full-time personal trainer.
Blendtec’s facilities in Orem currently include 168,000 square feet of manufacturing, warehouse, and administrative offices. The Architectural firm is Pasker Gould Ames and Weaver (PGA&W) and Layton Construction will build the facility. The new building is scheduled for completion in October 2011. Zions Bank is providing both construction and mortgage financing for the project.
Speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony will be Blendtec CEO Tom Dickson and Mayor of Orem City Jerry Washburn. Also attending will be other Orem City officials and representatives from PGA&W, Layton Construction, and Zions Bank. Following the ceremonies, refreshments and a factory tour will be provided for the guests.
