Covid-19: Groupe Marcelle forced to reduce its operations

Canadian beauty leader Groupe Marcelle, which markets the make-up and skin care brands Marcelle, Lise Watier, Annabelle and CW Beggs and Sons, announced temporary layoffs effective March 30, amid the Covid-19 pandemic that required a reduction of its operations for an indefinite period.

"This very difficult decision will allow us to recover after this period of crisis and ensure the sustainability of Groupe Marcelle. We put the health of our employees and our partners, as well as our responsibility to society at large, at the forefront of all our decisions," said David Cape, President of Groupe Marcelle in statement. "I would like to thank our partner, the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Quebec (CDPQ), as well as our retailers and many consumers for supporting us during this pandemic," he added.

The company added it would take every possible measure to minimize the impact on its workforce, including job-sharing as well as employees being offered jobs at companies that need manpower (e.g. food industry).

Headquartered in Montréal, Québec, Groupe Marcelle employs over 400 staffs and distributes its products in over 3,500 stores across Canada.
