Fiabila opens a factory in Brazil and increases its investment in the United States and France

Fiabila, the French Group is pursuing its development strategy in France but also in other parts of the world. Latest information to date, the Group’s official establishment in Brazil, in a newly acquired factory, but also a brand new building for the conditioning of its products in the United States, not to mention the considerable investments dedicated to environment protection in its French production site. Explanations by Pierre Miasnik, CEO.

It’s official, Fiabila, the French manufacturer of nail polish, has acquired a factory in Brazil of more than 7,300 sqm on the outskirts of Sao Paulo, close to the international airport. “Production start-up is scheduled in three phases,” explained Pierre Miasnik, CEO. “As of next July, tinting processes will be operational. The implementation of packaging lines and then the manufacture of bases will follow in the following weeks and months.” An important milestone for the French company considering that this region is the second largest market behind the U.S., in terms of nail polish consumption.

Environment: a constant concern

Which doesn’t stop us, from continuing our investments in France and in other parts of the world,” highlighted Pierre Miasnik. In the United States first, where the French Group, who already owns two plants, has recently taken possession of a new building to house its packaging lines and which will be operational by the end of this year. In France too, where the Group, as part of a proactive environmental policy, has just spend the tidy sum of twelve million euros for the extension of the Maintenon site. Storage tanks with a total capacity of 450,000 litres were installed for the distribution of solvents and polymers replacing for the latter, a former supply system relying on 200 litre barrels. “This means much more efficient, secure and clean logistics, explains Pierre Miasnik, which makes it possible to source our polymers using road tankers, to fully automate transfers carried out in a closed circuit to limit the release of VOCs [1] in the atmosphere. All VOCs will be captured at the point of emission and oxidation–treated before there are released in the atmosphere. An environmental effort, accompanied by a number of other decisions, like for example, the use of raw materials of plant origin.

The company, which will be present at Cosmoprof, will take the opportunity to present its new website. “A website, insists Pierre Miasnik, that will reflect what our daily work is made of, namely an ongoing quest for creativity and quality.
