Schwan Cosmetics expands production centre for wooden cosmetic pencils in Czech Republic

On March 29th, Schwan Cosmetics has officially opened a second production facility for wooden cosmetic pencils at their Czech site in Ceský Krumlov. The new production facility was inaugurated in the presence of the Governor of southern Bohemia Ms. Ivana Stráská and the Mayor of Ceský Krumlov Mr. Dalibor Carda, as well as executives and members of the Schwan Cosmetics group.

In total, the company invested around 29 million euros in the infrastructure and a building, over 3,600 m2. The facility offers further logistics and production areas as well as new offices and communication rooms.

Our competence centre offers the latest production technology paired with the highest hygiene standards for our cosmetic pencils as well as optimal workplaces for our employees,” said Jaroslav Jírovec, Managing Director of Schwan Cosmetics Czech Republic.

A green building

The new building is based on an energetic concept that mostly relies on renewable energy. A ground channel made of two 1.8 m wide pipes is used for air treatment and partially replaces the air conditioning. The residual heat from the compressor is utilized by a heat recovery unit and used either for general heating or heating up water.

A green roof provides optimal thermal insulation and ensures that the building sits harmoniously in its surroundings. Daylight is also used to its full potential: it not only helps save energy but also contributes to the pleasant working conditions in the fully- glazed production hall.

We want to inspire our customers with innovation just as much as our operative excellence. Our expanded competence centre brings us a step further towards this goal. At this location, we are making sustainable innovation palpable,” concluded Dr. Jörg Karas, Managing Director of Schwan Cosmetics.
