DACOR FINDS A NEW HOME
After eight good years in Diamond Bar, Dacor is moving its corporate headquarters to the renowned Plaza Tower in Costa Mesa, overlooking one of California's most prestigious shopping districts, the South Coast Plaza.
The headquarters relocation is the latest in a series of steps taken by Dacor over the past two years to realign its operations, consolidate corporate functions, increase efficiencies and reduce costs, to ready the company for new growth.
Longtime resident and supporter of the Orange County community, Chairman/CEO Michael Joseph is enthusiastic about the move. "I am excited that we were able to move our company to this area, which has so much to offer," said Joseph. "We had a remarkable eight-year run in Diamond Bar and, previous to that, for 23 years in Pasadena. However, I truly believe Dacor is in the best place at the right time and I am confident the company will soon begin to grow and prosper as never before."
In 2009, the Plaza Tower earned the LEED-EB Gold Certification for its environmentally friendly construction and operation, thus making the new space additionally attractive to Dacor because it is consistent with the company's commitment to the conservation of the environment. The Plaza Tower, along with the neighboring Center Tower and Park Tower, are the first multitenant buildings in California and among the first four buildings in the United States to receive the distinction from the U.S. Green Building Council.
"Dacor is well positioned and is clearly on its way to redefining the market by providing more ways for consumers to experience extraordinary cooking in their home," continued Joseph. "In additon to our well-established line of luxury appliances, the introduction of the new Distinctive™ line of appliances is perfect for consumers looking for a more affordable luxury solution that is stylish, well featured and does not compromise on performance. What else would you expect from Dacor?"
Dacor's new headquarters is located at 600 Anton Blvd., Costa Mesa, California, and the company's manufacturing facility will continue to operate in City of Industry.
