The Clarins group has announced to set up a new cosmetics production unit on a 13.5-hectare site in Troyes, North East of France. This will be the group’s second production site, in addition to the one in Pontoise, near Paris.

According to Clarins, construction should start by the end of February, with production scheduled to begin in autumn 2024. The total investment is evaluated at around 135 million euros.

This new site will allow Clarins to further secure its production and provide the group with the necessary capacities to develop its cosmetics offer,” said the group in a statement.

The site will be in line with Clarins’ CSR commitments. It will meet the HQE (high environmental quality) “excellent” criteria.

"Our ambitious roadmap involves doubling our production, which leads us today to the implementation of a second site. As a French company, the Clarins Group has always chosen to favour ‘made in France’ and short supply chain. This is why we are pleased to announce the imminent arrival of our new production plant in Sainte-Savine where we will contribute to local employment,” said Jonathan Zrihen, President and CEO of the Clarins Group.
