PANORAMA CITY, CA-Zodax, a marketer of candles and other home decorative accessories, has acquired a 200,000-sf build-to-suit industrial facility here and plans to occupy half of the new building at 14200 Arminta St. The company plans to lease out the remaining half of the space, according to David Hoffberg, SVP with Van Nuys-based Delphi Business Properties, who was part of a team representing the Zodax entity that bought the building.

The new Zodax facility occupies an 8.5-acre site at the mixed-use Plant development, where Zodax already occupies a 100,00-sf building. Hoffberg and Jerry Scullin, COO of Delphi, represented Powell Plaza Associates and Apex Equity Properties LLC, the buyers of the new building, and have also been named to lease the balance of the building.

Philip Cohanim, president of Zodax, says that the new facility enables the company to both expand and transfer manufacturing activities to a single campus from other San Fernando facilities. The new building, where Zodax will employ approximately 100 workers, will improve efficiencies by housing manufacturing, design, importing and distribution at a single location,” Cohanim says.

Founded in 1990, privately held Zodax has expanded into one of the largest sources of decorative and fragranced candles. In 2004 the company built a fully automated candle production facility, furnishing products to a network of independent sales representatives throughout the U.S. and on display in permanent showrooms in major markets.

Zodax’s new facility is a concrete tilt-up structure featuring 28-foot minimum clearance, 14 dock-high loading doors and on-site parking for 400 cars. The developers and sellers of the new Zodax building, S&V Van Nuys-C&D LLC, represented themselves.
