Ecommerce beauty brand West Barn Co. has moved into new 11,000 square-foot headquarters at Belmont Industrial Estate in Durham.

The family-run brand, which became viral for its Soap Brows product, said it invested in the new space after outgrowing its previous office and manufacturing space.

Launched in 2016 by mother-daughter duo Donna and Kimberley Cattin with a vision to create cruelty-free, vegan-friendly and sustainable beauty products, the company ships to over 60 countries with almost 30 staff.

The brand has worked with Ben Johnson Interiors, a specialist commercial interiors firm, to create the space and design, build and supply furniture.

The new headquarters includes a photography studio, product Lab, packaging area, workspace, wellness area and a newly-launched beauty clinic West Barn Co. Clinic.

Kimberley Cattin said: “We are all so thrilled with our new HQ and could not have brought this vision to life without the team at Ben Johnson.

“I’m excited to call this new place our home and look forward to many successful years in it as we return to a shared workspace and West Barn Co. continues to grow!”

Emma Dodsley, Director at Ben Johnson Interiors, added: “It’s been a privilege to work on the new West Barn Co. HQ and the end result is a really inspiring project that shows what’s really possible in traditionally industrial spaces.”
