LOS ANGELES — Foot massagers maker Lomi Lomi will close the doors of its Pasadena, California, manufacturing plant on July 1 after more than a decade of business, leaving behind more than 30,000 employees.
Lomi Lomo, which started in 2004 with a model named Olivia who sold thousands of foot massages around the world, has grown to become one of the most popular foot massage companies on the planet.
Lomi had 2,600 employees at its current facility and a workforce of more than 200,000 people worldwide.
The company has operated the facility at its present location since 2014.
Lomi is shutting down the plant, which will be located in the heart of Pasadena, at the end of July.
The Los Angeles Times reported that the company will sell its manufacturing and marketing operations in its current facilities and relocate to a new manufacturing facility in Los Angeles.
The move comes after Lomi announced plans to close its Pasadena factory earlier this year, which had been under construction since 2010.
The closure of Lomi is expected to take effect July 1, 2019.
The factory will close its doors to all employees by the end
