On Friday, September 16, 2022, the multinational celebrated the 10th anniversary of its establishment in Spain with the inauguration ceremony of its new factory based in Granollers, Spain.
Surrounded by his Spanish collaborators, Marc Blaison, President of Cosmo International Fragrances, was in Granollers to inaugurate the new, completely redesigned fragrance manufacturing plant, expanding, and reaching more than 7,000 m2. To implement the multinational’s new strategic plan for 2024, the company has invested 10 million euros in its factory to multiply by four its production capacity in all the categories with a 75% automation rate. All production, mixing, packaging, quality control, and shipping will take place in these new buildings.
This investment will enable the fragrance house to meet the challenges linked to its growth and support its customers with shorter delivery times, regardless of product type and the volumes ordered.
The new site’s design integrates state-of-the-art technology with forward-thinking sustainability endeavors. Charles Berthier, a renowned architect who has worked with the multinational for more than 30 years, has once again harmonized the aesthetics and efficiency of the building. The redesigned building boasts modern architecture featuring common working spaces inspired by sailing boats with passageways reminiscent of cruise decks and portholes, as well as hoisted white sails that echo the movement and natural energy of ships.
Recently installed, the new robotic compounding preparation system can use several dosing robots that work independently but simultaneously to increase productivity.
Committed to its sustainability efforts, Cosmo International Fragrances has respected environmental standards but has gone even further in its actions by using green and sustainable energies and ensuring low-consumption electricity. Such measures include a solar panel installation on the roof, charging stations for electric vehicles, a waste industrial water collection system, and a fragrant and sustainable garden that preserves the Catalonia region’s biodiversity.
During the inauguration, the General Manager of Cosmo International Fragrances for the EAME region, Aymeric Fichard, assisted by Gilles Dupont, Operations and Plant Director, gave a speech at a cocktail event in the fragrant garden to celebrate the opening. In a beautiful tribute to the world of perfumery, the botanical garden is flourishing with over 40 plants from the Mediterranean region, such as lavender, rosemary, mint, jasmine, iris, and rose.
