GU Energy Labs Expands Into New Hometown Headquarters

on .

GU Energy Gel Berkeley, CAGU Energy Labs will move its corporate operations to a new facility offering 50 percent greater square footage on June 13. The new office, located on the busy 4th Street shopping area of Berkeley, CA, is the former headquarters of Clif Bar, another sports nutrition company with Berkeley roots. Along with the increase in space, GU is expanding production capacity by 50 percent, with room to accommodate significant additional growth. In addition, GU employees will not only enjoy a safer bike commute route, but will also benefit from a company gym, ping-pong tables and lounging/brainstorming spaces.

For the past several years, GU has run its operations, shipping and marketing from multiple buildings throughout Berkeley. Sustained growth and a downturn in the commercial real estate market led GU to pursue the goal of getting all employees and the manufacturing operation under one roof. For the first time in 5 years, all employees will be in the same building, with shipping outsourced to a third party logistics provider for improved service and response times.

The 4th Street location will also welcome Annie’s Homegrown, which is occupying a separate build-out in the adjacent space. Annie’s is currently headquartered in Napa, California and is also significantly expanding their corporate footprint.
