Cultivating a warm and inviting work environment
Starting as a grain belt distillery in 1941, MGP Ingredients has since grown into a leading supplier of premium distilled spirits, branded spirits and plant based food ingredients. They partner with small startups and global brands alike to innovate in the beverage alcohol and food ingredients space and also create some of the finest branded whiskeys, ryes, bourbons, tequilas, and gin in the world.

As they started to plan a move from one of their locations in Lenexa, Kansas to a location closer to the Kansas City metro, MGP retained Helix to help them create a space that would translate their values, processes, structure, and strategies into a thoughtfully designed workplace. Filled with warm tones and varying textures of wood, the design inspiration was pulled from the colors of American Whiskey and other MGP food ingredients.
Coming from an outdated office, MGP is excited to be in a well-designed space that reflects their personality and that will sustain the growth of their company. Having a team of about 20 people, they want to provide private offices for staff members while also having places for collaboration and coming together, such as open workstations and an entertaining kitchen space.
