Construction is underway on a project that eventually will relocate SeneGence International headquarters from California to Oklahoma.
The skincare and cosmetics firm recently broke ground on a roughly 150,000-square-foot distribution center and 250,000-square-foot warehouse in Sapulpa, Oklahoma. Upon completion of this initial phase, slated for mid-2018, the company plans to develop corporate offices, manufacturing and research and development, and convention facilities on site.
Buildout over the entire 225-acre campus is estimated to take five to seven years to complete.
Back in California, growing pains have prompted the company’s third headquarters expansion to date. SeneGence is in the process of moving its corporate offices and warehouse to a larger 50,000-square-foot space in Foothills Ranch, California, following three consecutive years of more than 100 percent sales growth year over year.
The company has ties to Oklahoma through its founder, Joni Rogers-Kante, who grew up in Sapulpa. Rogers-Kante started SeneGence in 1999 with LipSense Liquid Lip Color as its leading product. It now sells more than 300 products and accessory items in 15 countries.
