Aug 4, 2016Western Growers unveils new headquarters
Western Growers unveiled its new headquarters in a private ribbon-cutting ceremony, welcoming members of the Western Growers Board of Directors, spouses and special guests to the company’s new home at 15525 Sand Canyon in Irvine, California.
Chairman Larry Cox, of Lawrence Cox Ranches, did the ribbon-cutting honors. Guests and their spouses participated in a building tour, reception and dinner. The event was held in conjunction with Western Growers’ quarterly Board Meeting in Newport Beach.
Prior to the relocation, most employees of Western Growers’ 12 companies and business divisions were spread amongst four different locations in Irvine.
“Consolidation to an 80,000-square-foot standalone three-story building allows us to bring all our Orange County-based employees under one roof and still gives us the opportunity to expand,” Nassif said.
While the new building pays homage to the past, it also paves an expectant path for the future, providing employees with state-of-the-art capabilities.
Western Growers operates six different companies that are both non-profit and for-profit entities, including Western Growers Assurance Trust, Western Growers Insurance Services, Western Growers Financial Services, Western Growers Labor Services, Western Growers Service Corporation and Pinnacle Claims Management. More than half of Western Growers’ employees report to one of the for-profit businesses.
