dōTERRA celebrated the opening of their new 200,000 square foot Pleasant Grove production building in true dōTERRA fashion Aug. 25 — focusing on the essentials.
The new facility houses their manufacturing and production lines, warehousing, a product will-call center for their wellness advocates, aromatherapy spa, reception area and additional office space. The new center has brought all of dōTERRA’s local employees under one roof. Prior to this, their warehousing, production, and manufacturing employees were working in buildings scattered throughout Utah County. VCBO Architecture was the local designer and architect for both the headquarters building and this building.
“It’s exciting to get everyone in one spot,” said McKay Brown, senior director of corporate marketing at dōTERRA. “In just a year, we’ve grown and filled some spots sooner than we anticipated. It’s been very strong growth.”
The company started in 2008, supplying essential oils for health and wellness to customers through direct sellers, known in the company as wellness advocates. David Stirling, dōTERRA CEO, credited these wellness advocates throughout the world, as well as dōTERRA’s management and employees, for building dōTERRA into the solid business it is now.
“It’s been a team effort from everyone,” he said.
He also highlighted dōTERRA’s global reach, mentioning how the company is now employing thousands of people in impoverished countries who are planting, growing and processing the plants for dōTERRA’s essential oil products.
“We anticipate thousands more will be employed in the future,” Stirling said. “We have a huge market behind us, and bring this market to them. Then we educate them how to up their production to the quality we need. We’re fortunate.”
