Nikken International – Nikken Irvine
I am an Independent Nikken Distributor and very proud of this fact. Nikken International was founded in Japan but opened a new 213,000 sq. Nikken building in Irvine, Ca in 1999 at a cost of $66 million. They paid cash and have no debt on the building to service. The building provided Nikken Irvine with a comfortable, stylish place in which to do business, plus an unexpected perk: It soon became a favorite filming location for Hollywood studios. The Nikken building is futuristic in appearance and is one of the most used buildings in California for movies, TV, and advertisements.
Nikken Building in Film
I grew up watching Star Trek on TV. I have always been fascinated by science fiction. I had been watching the trailers for the new TV show “No Ordinary Family”. I chose to watch this show last night over NCIS. I was in for a shock when I saw the Nikken building in several scenes of the show. It served as the office where the wife in the show worked….Global International. I did not find the “show” that good but I am now hooked on trying to catch a glimpse of Nikken International! Sorry NCIS.
I did a quick search on other films the Nikken building has been featured in. Nikken Irvine was an upscale gym in the 2004 movie “Dodgeball”, FBI’s Las Vegas headquarters in “Miss Congeniality II”, Thompson Land Development offices in the movie “You, Me, and Dupree”, and my favorite Stark Enterprises in the movie “Iron Man”. It also was featured in “Elisabethtown”, “Thank You For Smoking”, “The Informant”, “All About Steve”, “Transformers”, “The Astronaut Farmer”, and “Over the Top” and Cher did a music video here.
I have seen the Nikken Corp building on many episodes of TV shows and it is featured in a new Mercedes commercial that is running. I always ask people when I am out if they have ever heard of Nikken International. The answer is almost always no. It is curious to me that a company whose offices are featured so prominently in film is so unknown. I have embraced this company as my own. I could not be more proud to be a part of this organization. In today’s world many companies hide their name and what they do. I wear the name on my shirt, and have it proudly on my business card. I believe it to be the best business opportunity in the world today and a golden age is about to dawn on Nikken International and their distributors as the word Nikken becomes a household word synonymous with health and wellness here in the U.S.
