Specialized in cosmetics formulation, manufacturing and filling, food supplements, medical devices and drugs, the Anjac H&B Group keeps growing, as they have just purchased Normandy-based company Roval Cosmétiques, an expert in cosmetics and hygiene products.
Founded in 1980 by Yannick Brunet, Roval Cosmétiques formulates, manufactures, and fills ranges of perfume, toiletries, and hygiene, hair care and skincare products. The company owns two cosmetics production sites in France, in Flers, Normandy, one in Spain (Roval Cosmética), in Alcover, South of Barcelona, and one site for plastic bottle injection, also in Normandy. Roval Cosmétiques is also Ecocert-certified for the manufacturing of organic-certified products.
Thanks to this acquisition, Anjac H&B Group completes their portfolio of product expertise with categories they did not or almost did not yet cover (hygiene products, hair care, perfume). But above all, the group gains significant production capacity with “renowned industrial excellence” they aim to rely on for future prospects.
“Every new purchase is an opportunity for us to expand our industrial expertise and exclusive innovative capability”, emphasizes Aurélien Chaufour, General Manager of Anjac Health & Beauty. “This operation represents a major step in our development. It is perfectly in line with our strategy in terms of industrial expectations and continuous investment: we endeavour to keep satisfying our customers and markets with a high added value”, he adds.
A 400-million-euro turnover
Thanks to this purchase, Anjac H&B achieves a turnover of more than 400 million euros. Today, the group counts over 2,000 employees in France, Spain, and the US.
Multiplying purchases over the past few years, the French family group has gradually become a key beauty player in Europe. They have also recently settled in North America by purchasing Californian company Cosmetix West in September 2019.
Today, the group covers the whole cosmetics value chain, from research to finished products, including raw materials, with companies like Laboratoire Shadeline, Euro Wipes, Sicaf, Laboratoires Chemineau, Innovi, Pascual Cosmétiques, or Aircos, in France, Laboratoires Feltor in Spain, and Cosmetix West in the US.
“Every new operation provides the group with complementary expertise and new teams that help develop both the offering and technologies,” explains Anne Rutigliano, Marketing & Communications Director of Anjac H&B Group. “Thanks to its industrial strength, Roval Cosmétiques both completes Anjac H&B Group’s know-how and strong capacity and broadens our made in France offering,” she concludes.
