Plexus Moves into New Corporate Headquarters in Arizona

Fast-growing Plexus Worldwide has officially opened its new 70,000-square-foot corporate headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The weight-loss and nutrition company elected to build the facility alongside its existing 30,000-square-foot warehouse and fulfillment center in Scottsdale’s Pima Center. The new headquarters consolidates Plexus’ 200-plus employees, formerly dispersed across multiple offices, with ample space for future growth.

“Building our new headquarters adjacent to our warehouse facility allowed us to create a functional campus where we can truly get the most out of each building design while increasing the coordination between our talented employee teams, which previously worked in various locations around Scottsdale,” Plexus CEO Tarl Robinson said in a statement.

Robinson and former company executive Alfred Pettersen took over Plexus Worldwide in 2008. At the time, the 2-year-old company sold just one product, a Breast Chek Kit to help women screen themselves for breast cancer. Plexus now sells a range of weight-loss, detoxification, pain-relief and nutrition products through more than 275,000 independent Ambassadors.

Annual revenue climbed from less than $1 million in 2010 to more than $300 million in 2014, an accomplishment that earned Plexus the No. 8 rank on the 2014 Inc. 5000, a list of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. Plexus remained in the top 4 percent in 2015, earning the No. 132 spot. The DSN North America 50 named Plexus the No. 30 direct selling company in the region, based on 2014 revenue.

Scottsdale officials and dignitaries from the local Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community joined Plexus employees and Ambassadors at a ribbon-cutting ceremony held Thursday, Jan. 21, at the company’s new headquarters. Attendees had an opportunity to tour the facility, which features workspaces offset by oversized breakrooms and casual meeting spaces, as well as a large multimedia studio.
