French leading supplier of outsourcing services for the cosmetic, pharmaceutical and household industries Fareva group has acquired a majority stake in Chromavis group, a leading operator in the B2B make-up industry in Europe.
The operation, which was completed on July 31st 2013, allows Fareva strengthening its position in the make-up market.
“This acquisition is a major event for the group. Thanks to the creativity of Chromavis in the field of make-up, Fareva strengthens its strategy of global offering to its customers and has now in the cosmetics field (make-up and skin care), all the assets allowing it to be at the forefront of innovation and strengthen its R&D dimension, in which it has heavily invested in recent years, to better meet the market expectations. More complementarities (customers, geographical location, activities) will allow to implement numerous different synergies," says Bernard Fraisse, CEO of Fareva Group.
As far as Chromavis is concerned, the operation should help the group consolidating its position in the market and its strategy of international expansion.
