The new Group will have a turnover of EUR 20 million, with offices in Lille, Paris, Hong-Kong and Shenzhen, and strong capital and industrial partnerships in China, India, Spain and Eastern Europe.
Effective since October 12, 2020, this merger should allow the new entity to strengthen its position in full service and increase its presence with major beauty and luxury accounts.
