Houston-based Midway has completed an $18 million expansion for Bluebonnet Nutrition Corp. in the Sugar Land Business Park off South Dairy Ashford Road.
The 128,000-square-foot facility, which was built by Houston-based D.E. Havery Builders, will serve as Bluebonnet's new headquarters. It also allows the company to more than triple its workforce to about 300 employees, which earn an average salary of $78,000, Bluebonnet said.
Houston-based Powers Brown Architecture designed the facility, which includes 80,000 square feet of warehouse space, 28,000 square feet of manufacturing and 20,000 square feet of office and lab space. Bluebonnet makes and distributes nutritional supplements such as multivitamins, children's nutrition, food supplements, protein powders and fish oils.
Besides the new building, Bluebonnet occupies about 100,000 square feet in tow other buildings inside the 1,000-acre Sugar Land Business Park. The new facility adds more capacity in the capsule and tablet unit, with anticipated inventory values at $11 million, the company said. Bluebonnet picked Midway for the development more than 20 years after the full-service real estate firm built its Sugar Land headquarters in 1998.
