25 Jun Vans Moving HQ
“I’m super excited,” Van Doren said. “We’ve outgrown our location.”
Vans is purchasing the three-story building on 15 acres near Harbor Boulevard and the 405 freeway, near the South Coast Collection, or SOCO. The company did not disclose a purchase price.
The announcement was made at Tuesday night’s Costa Mesa City Council meeting. Vans was interested in the property because it has room to expand, said Councilman Jim Righeimer.
Vans has 440 employees working out of the Cypress offices, and plans to expand to 500 by the time the move happens.
The company has grown from $320 million in revenue to $2 billion in the last decade, according to financial filings released earlier this year.
The build-out of the currently empty building will take about 16 months. Van Doren said the black-glass structure is gutted, with nothing but cement floors.
In the current North America headquarters in Cypress, 120 people work in a building that is 100 yards away from the company’s main offices, Van Doren said.
