Dansons Acquires New HQ Building
Global supplier of grills and smokers to the commercial catering sector, Dansons, has acquired a new headquarters facility in Scottsdale, Arizona in a sale brokered by Cushman & Wakefield.
Purchased for US $39 million, the 200,000 SF property at 8877 N Gainey Center Drive was formerly occupied by a Fortune 100 insurance company and features stunning multiple two-story lobby entrances, mature landscaping, ample surface visitor parking, along with three levels of underground garage parking.
Dansons employs more than 400 people and manufactures and sells BBQ smokers and grills under several brand names, including “Pit Boss” and “Louisiana Grills”. The manufacturer supplies retailers with its catering products and sells direct-to-consumers in more than 30 countries. It is also active in the consumable products market and wood pellet manufacturing.
Cushman & Wakefield managing director Dave Carder who represented Dansons in the sale with colleague and senior director, Scott Boardman, comments: “This was a great opportunity for Dansons to invest in an attractive Class A headquarters facility in the prestigious Gainey Ranch area.
“The building has many outstanding features, all within an excellent corporate setting with views of the surrounding Gainey Ranch Golf Club.”
Dansons President, Jeff Thiessen, adds: “We are blessed to have acquired a beautiful new office building for our company to call home.
“The new Dansons campus will help usher in a new era for our company. Not only will it provide us a state-of-the-art space for our team to continue to innovate and market best-in-class-products, but it also will serve as a perfect venue to host our valued retail and business partners, brand ambassadors and extended members of the Dansons family.
“We could not be more excited for what’s to come.”
The property provides convenient access to the Loop 101 freeway and enjoys an abundance of upscale and popular amenities, retail services and entertainment venues.
