To celebrate its 10th anniversary and honor its employees, customers and vendors, McKenna Labs held an open house at its San Diego, California, facility—hosted by company president Dennis Owen and attended by GCI magazine. The event featured plant tours and introduction of key employees.

The October tour was followed by an elegant evening, with a cocktail reception at the La Valencia Hotel highlighted by sunset over the Pacific. Dinner, entertainment and libations were provided in honor of all who have contributed to the company’s success and provided inspiration for continued success. The company also celebrated its newest creation, to its guests delight, the McKenna Martini. Made in tank T-9, the buzz-worthy batch featured batch cards, procedures and proper INCI designations of all ingredients, and was carefully tested by Dennis Owen himself before final release from QC.

The event also allowed the company to highlight the combined manufacturing, chemistry, engineering, regulatory, systems and business expertise that facilitated its double-digit growth rates, achieved over the past five years. Owen noted that genuine determination to be a key role in customers’ success resulted in the achievement of aggressive goals.
