SML RFID, a global apparel branding, packaging and technology solutions company, has extended and expanded its lease at its headquarters in Plano, according to a release by CBRE Group Inc., on Aug. 26.

The Plano headquarters is expanding its office space from roughly 8,000 square feet to more than 17,000 square feet. The release lists an expected growth of employment from SML RFID’s current 40-plus employees as the primary reason for expansion.

“We’re thrilled that SML was able to expand their current space in Plano,” said Baron Aldrine, CBRE executive vice president, in the release. “The central location is ideal for them, and the expansion demonstrates that they’re doubling down on their commitment to technology in North Texas.”

The headquarters is located at 6400 International Parkway, Plano, at the International Business Park near the Dallas North Tollway and George Bush Turnpike.

“SML has been a wonderful tenant and we are so excited to have them expand their footprint at International Business Park,” said Lucy Burns, partner with Billingsley Company, in the release. “We are looking forward to continuing our strong working relationship.”

A Retail Ideation Space (RIS) was opened by SML in June and sits adjacent to the offices. Plano’s RIS was the first in the U.S. and offers a collaboration space for retailers and brand owners to trial-run new technology from SML.

SML RFID is a subsidiary of SML, a global branding solutions provider. SML RFID opened its headquarters in Plano in 2016.
