Lessonia remains on course for growth

Lessonia, the Brittany-based company specializing in the production of cosmetic ingredients and personal care products for the spa markets, has recently taken over the business of cosmetics manufacturer Océaliance, which is also located near Brest, Western France.

Océliance was facing financial difficulties due to its excessively small size. Six of the eight jobs have been preserved and relocated, as well as the production tool, on Lessonia’s production site, in Saint-Thonan.

This acquisition enables Lessonia to increase its production capacity and is consistent with the company’s growth strategy, which includes the development of a cosmetics production tool. Lessonia now employs 57 staffs and its turnover has increased from 6.5 million to nearly 8 million euros.

The company, which wants to expand its range of expertise, is also preparing to launch a new investment plan to renovate and expand its production tool and its premises. Works, including the extension of the laboratory R&D, will begin on spring 2013.

Lessonia aims to grow by 30% in 2013, relying in particular on its exports and its sales offices in Hong Kong and Mexico.
