The Dial Corporation and Henkel broke ground for a new headquarters building in Scottsdale, Arizona—also home to the current headquarters. According to a press release, the construction project is the largest in company history.
"Today, as we break ground for our new headquarters facility, we are marking a significant event in Dial's history," said Brad Casper, president and CEO, Dial. "The acquisition of Dial in 2004 was Henkel's largest, and this new building represents Henkel's largest investment in a new facility anywhere in the world. In undertaking this construction, we are acknowledging the commitment we share to the growth of our business, present and future, and our very real sense and spirit of community."
Dial's new 350,000 square foot facility will span 4.75 acres with four levels, totaling 60 feet in height. Dial's current headquarters and R&D operations are planning to move to their new headquarters in the fall of 2008. In total, Dial's new headquarters will house almost 800 employees. Additionally, through a dedicated effort toward a more sustainable future, Dial's objective is to meet LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification.
