Last November, KDC announced the acquisition of Thibiant International, a California based formulator and manufacturer of personal and skin care products. This transaction followed a series of acquisitions carried out in 2014 and 2015, in particular of Cosmetic Technologies, which allowed KDC to establish a first branch on the West Coast of the U.S.
