Alkos Group: a new plant for Intercosmétiques in 2017

The Alkos Group, a French leading cosmetics subcontractor who achieved a strong growth again in 2015 (10%) and a consolidated turnover of more than 51 million euros, has decided to invest in a new plant due for 2017 for one of its entities, Intercosmétiques.

The Alkos Group has reached a new phase in its development: it has announced the construction of a new plant for its Intercosmétiques branch. The work will start at the end of the first semester 2016 to be finished in summer 2017.

The site chosen, the Parc d’activités Angers-Orgemont, a business park, was previously occupied by motor vehicle equipment manufacturer Valeo. The 16,000 m2 area used by only one tenant will be completely redesigned to meet the cosmetics manufacturer’s needs.

Given the strong growth estimations for the next five years, it had become essential to reorganize and rationalize our premises to be able to keep up with and support the growth of Intercosmétiques’s activities,” the group explains in a press release.

Expansion and rationalization

Located near Angers, France, Intercosmétiques is a company specialized in the formulation, production, and conditioning of skincare and makeup products. It makes up one of the three units of the Alkos Group, with Sagal, located in Chartres and known for its soaps and perfumed stick deodorants, and Alkos Cosmétiques, a unique makeup pencil producer in France (wood, plastic, and liner pens) settled in Boulogne-sur-Mer.

Intercosmétiques employs more than 250 workers and serves the most famous cosmetics brands. It has known a strong growth over the last few years, in particular in 2015, with a turnover increase of 20% to reach more than 31 million euros.

Apart from the necessary development of the production capacity and the creation of new manufacturing lines, the Alkos Group adds that building this new plant aims to gather the three current sites, since the cumulative surface area of 11,000 m2 is spread across the whole industrial site right now. This rationalization should help achieve new gains of competitiveness and significantly improve the quality of the environment and the staff’s working conditions.

An 8.5 million euro investment

The site chosen, the Parc d’activités Angers-Orgemont, a business park, was previously occupied by motor vehicle equipment manufacturer Valeo. The 16,000 m2 area used by only one tenant will be completely redesigned to meet the cosmetics manufacturer’s needs. And it has another advantage, as it offers huge extension possibilities that could be exploited in the medium-term.

Of course, this new configuration will perfectly meet the requirements of the strictest cosmetics standards,” the group assures.

The whole operation represents an 8.5 million euro investment. Intercosmétiques benefits from the support of ALDEV, Angers’s agency for the economic development of its urban community.

Victoria’s Secret or the failure of a conservative positioning?

When the Victoria’s Secret show was cancelled it didn’t come as a surprise. In May, it was reported by The New York Times that the show would no longer be broadcast on network television. “We must evolve and change to grow. With that in mind, we have decided to re-think the traditional Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show". From 2001 to 2018, (...)
