With its 500 employees scattered in numerous Silicon Valley buildings and
growing fast, contract manufacturer Vander-Bend recently brought its team under one roof at 2701 Orchard Parkway in San Jose, leasing 200,000 square feet from LBA Realty.
The transaction represents the largest lease on “Renovation Row” in North San José, taking up 10 percent of the vacant space in the area and providing the firm with future flexibility for growth.
Vander-Bend will celebrate its grand opening and offer a facility tour on Thursday, February 26, with San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo.
“We’re delighted to welcome Vander-Bend and its 500 manufacturing jobs to our Renovation Row,” said Mayor Liccardo. “Bringing manufacturing back to the U.S. is vital to our long-term economic development, job growth, and prosperity, and it supports our region’s intense commitment to innovation.”
Date: Thursday, February 26
Time: Program: 11:30am – 12:00pm
Facility Tour: 12:00pm to 12:30pm
Where: 2701 Orchard Parkway, San José

“Vander-Bend realized that a five-building campus in Sunnyvale was no longer adequate to meet our growth,” said Steve Wolf, General Manager at Vander-Bend. “Our San Jose location on Renovation Row is ideal. LBA Realty provided a well-structured deal and extensive support, and the City of San Jose eased the permitting process for our $7 million in renovations and improvements. The result is a state-of-the-art manufacturing campus, providing efficiency gains by having all operations under one very big roof.”
