Groupe GM invests in its French manufacturing site to address skyrocketing orders

Groupe GM, a manufacturer of cosmetic products specialising in the guest amenity industry, has announced a multi-million euro investment into the expansion of its manufacturing facility in Lyon, France.

According to the French company, the factory, which produces amenity products for hotels in more than 70 countries, has been facing a considerable increase in orders since the last quarter of 2016.

By summer 2018, the factory will grow from 4000 m2 to 5200 m2. Groupe GM is planning to purchase 9 new machines in 2018 growing the plant’s production capabilities to 31 machines in total, with the possibility of adding 3 to 5 more machines in the future.

Groupe GM Cosmétiques France (GGMCF), the group’s plant in Lyon, has already grown staff from 50 to 85 workers. According to the company, the plant will reach 100 employees by this summer, representing a doubling in staff levels over the last year. Specific roles are to be created to assist with the plant’s transformation, as well as a dedicated recruit working on laboratory and the bulk production. In addition, new supply chain software has been deployed to streamline processes.

In terms of production, Groupe GM has witnessed significant growth in units produced. In 2015, the Lyon plant manufactured 40 million tubes and bottles. Today, units produced has increased to 65 million units and in 2019, GGMCF will be able to produce up to 85 million of tubes and bottles - more than twice the amount delivered in 2015. To re-enforce this growth, the factory has doubled its emulsion production capacity.
