The new manufacturing unit features 12 lines dedicated to the production of perfumes and 9 lines for personal care products (creams, lotions and shampoos). Furthermore, the building’s architecture (about 65,000sqm - including operational, administrative spaces and utilities) was designed using a modular structure that enables to extend the site’s capacity when needed. The production capacity could thus be doubled with such increase requiring only new equipment but no additional works. The new factory’s production potential is up to 300 million items per year.
