Belkin International Signs Lease to Move Headquarters from Playa Vista to El Segundo in Q4 2021

Southern California's Founding Tech Company Reimagines the Workplace

LOS ANGELES -- March 11, 2021 -- Belkin, a global consumer electronics leader, today announces its move to a new headquarters location later this year. The future move from its office in Playa Vista, Calif. to 555 Aviation in El Segundo, Calif. marks its commitment to adopting a hybrid and flexible workplace of the future. Since the company's founding in 1983, not far from its future El Segundo headquarters, Belkin has prided itself on its entrepreneurial and startup mentality, and a culture that prioritizes collaboration and innovation.

Belkin will be incorporating a human-centric, inspiring and intuitive design. New sustainability features will also help the company continue its march towards achieving its corporate goal of becoming carbon neutral in scope 2 emissions by 2025.

"The traditional ways organizations operated yesterday simply may not work in the new normal of today or tomorrow," said Steve Malony, CEO, Belkin International. "A successful flexible work culture requires a foundation of trust, accountability, and an increase of communication at all levels, and I have no doubt that our Belkin team will fully embrace the entrepreneurial spirit of this transition."

The new space will offer a state-of-the-art fitness center, coffee shop, outdoor lounge areas with fire features, bike storage and ample parking. Just a short walk away from major retail destination Rosecrans Corridor, 555 Aviation is in a highly sought-after area that is accessible by all modes of transportation.

Tishman Speyer is the owner and operator of the property and is an active developer and investor in the Los Angeles market. Belkin previously worked with Tishman Speyer to develop its Playa Vista office space in 2009.
