In June, BendPak purchased a new global headquarters in order to support its growing operations and expand its workforce. The new administrative building is 22,256 sq. ft. and is located on a 12-acre property in Agoura Hills, California.
“Our new global command center will enable us to provide a healthier, more comfortable and supportive work environment to help our employees thrive personally and professionally,” said Jeff Kritzer, BendPak president and CEO. "We look forward to this exciting new chapter in our company's history.”
Designed to help promote relaxation, innovation, and constructive thought among our staff members, it features Zen-like elements such as a waterfall, a brook, and a koi pond, along with many outside relaxation and meeting spaces. The building includes private offices, conference rooms, and open workspaces.
Built in 2012, the building features an open and modern design with plenty of natural light and sustainable design elements such as a green roof, solar panels, and a rainwater harvesting system. It also features a sophisticated climate control system, photovoltaics (PV), thermal solar hot water tubes, and extensive water-saving elements.
The net-zero energy building harnesses the power of the sun to generate all the power it needs through the array of solar photovoltaic panels covering its parking canopy. This feature also highlights BendPak’s commitment to sustainable practices and reducing the company's carbon footprint.
"Our new headquarters is not just a physical space, it's a reflection of our company culture and values," said Rudy Diaz, chief operating officer. "With three strategic campus locations across the United States, we’ll be even better positioned to provide our customers with the highest-quality products and services, while also increasing our capacity for further growth and innovation.”
