Olivia Garden’s founders, Jean and Micheline Rennette are surrounded by family as they cut the ribbon on their new facility.
Olivia Garden, a manufacturer of professional beauty products and supplies, recently held an open house for its brand new facility in Antioch, California. Attendees toured the company's new 30,000 square-foot custom designed USA facility and a celebration of over four decades in business.
Olivia Garden’s founders, Jean and Micheline Rennette, along with their children, Anne Maza and Pierre Rennette who now run the business, were on-hand to greet guests which included clients, business associates, local city officials, along with friends and family members. The ceremony included a short speech, office and warehouse visits followed by hors d’oeuvres and refreshments.
The new facility features 6,500sq ft. of state-of-the-art office space with a contemporary design filled with natural lights in every office. It includes a photo studio, a store merchandising prep room, a onference room, a large fully functioning kitchen with lunch room. The office infra-structure is designed to be doubled to 13,000 square feet when Olivia Garden will need that additional space. Its glass offices open onto its high capacity storage warehouse which can accommodate 1,200 pallets, plenty of space for new products and well organized for fast order processing.
Anne Maza kicked off the event with a short speech referencing the origins of Olivia Garden which was founded in Belgium in 1968. “The road to where we are today was not an easy one but it was a successful one because of Jean and Micheline’s hard work, sacrifices, perseverance, dedication, intelligence, creativity, fairness, teamwork, focus and passion,” said Maza. Jean and Micheline built a successful company in Europe and then moved to America in 1985, to start all over again. Today, Olivia Garden has offices in both Europe and the USA and its products are available in over 65 different countries worldwide.
