Illume Holding Co. Adding Jobs in Maple Grove
Monday, June 25, 2018
Company will invest nearly $10.6 million and create 85 jobs
Home fragrance and personal care products company Illume Holding Co. said it will invest nearly $10.6 million in Maple Grove.
Illume plans to move into a new 288,000-square-foot leased facility in the Arbor Lakes Business Park in Maple Grove. The move will enable the company to consolidate its operations at a single site.
Along with the move, the company plans to add 85 jobs within two years paying wages averaging $22.21 an hour.
The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) is supporting the project with a $175,000 grant from the Job Creation Fund and a $450,000 loan from the Minnesota Investment Fund.
“Illume is growing rapidly in both domestic and international markets,” said DEED Commissioner Shawntera Hardy. “The new headquarters will consolidate the company’s employees under one roof and position the business for continued growth.”
Illume, which is owned by California-based Regent Holding Co., is a global brand offering home fragrance and personal care products. Retail customers include Anthropologie, West Elm and Target. Illume moved to Minnesota in 2007 and previously operated as Starlume. Regent Holding, a major competitor in the U.S. gift and home accessories market, acquired Illume in 2016.
