The Hain Celestial Group, a provider of natural and organic products, says it will expand its international corporate headquarters in Lake Success, and add 100 new jobs during the next decade.
The company, which currenlty has offices in Melville, plans to relocate 250 of its employees to new, leased office space in Lake Success, which Newsday described as 86,104 square feet at 1111 Marcus Ave., and once home to the United Nations.
Thanks to tax incentives through the State of New York via Empire State Development and the Nassau County Industrial Development Agency, Hain Celestial has committed to investing $10 million as part of its relocation and operation expansion.
Hain Celestial was founded almost 20 years ago by Irwin D. Simon, the company's president and chief executive. By 2001, the company reported more than $400 million in sales.
For 2011, the company reported wordwide sales of $1.1 billion.
The Lake Success facility will be "state of the art," allowing the company to conduct research and create products "that will be sold all over the world," Simon said in a statement.
Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano, in a statement, praised the move as "a win-win for Nassau residents.”
