For skincare and make-up only, explains Jay Kim, CEO of Cosmax International, our turnover, which also rose sharply, will exceed US$ 500 million!

The group, who, in this area, currently relies on five plants, with one in Korea, two in China, one in Indonesia and one in the USA (Ohio), has announced the intensification of its efforts in the area of packaging development (efforts that resulted in recent months in the creation of a Korea Research and Innovation Centre) with the opening of a similar second unit in the New Jersey premises, operational since January 8, and which should employ a hundred people in three years’ time.

In this area, we are working with the biggest brands,” emphasises Jay Kim. Among recent successes developed by the Cosmax teams, a “compact cushion” fully patented by the group and already sold at more than 40 million units to its key customers.

A huge potential in China!

And there is more! The group also announced the strengthening of its production tool in China with the launch of two new units in Shanghai.
