Barilla has announced the relocation of its Region Americas Headquarters from Bannockburn, Ill. to Northbrook, Ill. by August, 2015. Barilla selected the single-tenant facility to provide a better employee and customer experience, improve research & development innovation capabilities and develop stronger employer branding.
In August, roughly 150 employees will transfer to the 75,000 square-foot Northbrook office facility located at 885 Sunset Ridge. The new Headquarters location was chosen by Barilla leadership after an extensive market analysis against strategic growth objectives. The two-story, recently renovated facility features a full test kitchen and pilot plant capabilities. Barilla will be making renovations to the new facility over the next four months to align with its strong brand identity, growth strategies and consumer and customer innovation aspirations.
“The move to Northbrook signifies an exciting new chapter for Barilla’s Region Americas operations, and we look forward to partnering with the Northbrook community in the coming months and the foreseeable future.” – Barilla Americas President, Jean-Pierre Comte
