Florida: Oxygen’s new plant is operational!

20,000 sqm, a staff of 500 divided on three shifts, A USD 22 million investment: Oxygen’s new manufacturing and packaging factory of cosmetics (PremiumBeautyNews.com June 7, 2011) which just opened a few days ago, located an hour’s drive north of Miami (Florida), is impressive.

The least one can say is that this company has done remarkably well since its creation, just 10 years ago through the impetus of its founder, Philippe Cohen. At the start of 2012, Oxygen has acquired the ’state of the art’ in terms of manufacturing and packaging of cosmetics by moving its production tool just a few miles away in a brand new factory hosting cutting edge equipments for R&D, formulation and filling operations. “This is actually the trend,” says Philippe Cohen. “Brands come to us because they know our reputation for developing new products.

More than fifteen people are involved daily in Research and Development in the nine laboratory rooms of the company. The company can manufacture just about anything or almost (powders, mascaras, lipsticks, foundations, lip gloss, as well as skincare creams and hair products).

Ambitions abroad!

From year to year, thanks to this new production tool, Oxygen has all of a sudden stepped up its production capacity by 300% when compared to the potential of its previous factory. “The objectives being of course, to better serve our existing customers in North America, precisely at a time when the Made in America is back into force in people’s minds,” emphasises Philippe Cohen, “but also to give ourselves the means to grow on overseas markets, like Central America, South America and even Europe at a time when, the euro/dollar parity is more favourable. Not to mention our reputation for responsiveness the American way!
