TechnicoFlor invests in a new production site

The French designer and manufacturer of aromatic compounds and plant extracts for the fragrance and food industries is investing nearly 10 million euros in the construction of new production facilities. This new manufacturing unit will enable the company to double its production capacity.

The construction of the new production site is scheduled to start at the end of 2017 in Allauch, Provence, Southern France. The new facility will feature two industrial buildings: one dedicated to the production of perfumes and the other to the production of raw materials. The new site will replace the current production unit which employs 70 people on an area of 2000 m2.

With a total area of 3,000-3,500 m2 on a land area of 20,000 m2, the new production tool is expected to be operational at the end of 2018. It will enable TechnicoFlor to double its production capacity. All production, mixing, packaging, quality control and shipments will be carried out in the new buildings.

The company - which already uses 5 automated weighing and mixing machines that can produce 0.05 g. to 50 kg. of compounds, 24 hours a day under software supervision - has designed fully robotised lines for its new units. They will feature several new generation robots, including a powder weighing machine, allowing ultra-precise dosages, regardless the particles size. The production and packaging will be carried out by gravity in order to avoid using pumps. Eventually, the construction of an unloading dock featuring three special doors adapted to trailers will facilitate deliveries.

This investment should allow the French designer of aromatic composition to address the challenges linked to its growth and to better serve its customers in particular with shortened delivery lead times, which are expected to drop down to 4 or 5 days of processing - irrespective of product type and volumes ordered. “We needed a new production unit to anticipate our growth and support our development. Our future production centre and its state-of-the-art equipment is designed to optimize the delivery lead time. It will meet stringent environmental quality standards, in line with our environmental policy,” explains François-Patrick Sabater, President of TechnicoFlor.

TechnicoFlor already uses 5 automated weighing and mixing machines that can produce 0.05 g. to 50 kg. of compounds, 24 hours a day under software supervision.

Indeed, the company has been involved for many years in a demanding eco-environmental approach. In the Valley of Nepal, for instance, TechnicoFlor supports Man & Nature, a non-profit organisation that helps farmers from the Bardia National Park and their families. This initiative allows the company to collect an ultra-premium quality of essential oils (Chamomile, Ginger, Curcuma, Lemongrass, Coriander, Mint, Lemongrass, Eucalyptus, Lantana, Calamus, Basil ...) while helping local populations and contributing to the protection of the fauna.

The new building will thus meet France’s HQE (High Environmental Quality) standards, and will feature a rainwater collecting system and a green roof.

TechnicoFlor is a family-owned group created in 1982by François-Patrick Sabater. The company has been supplying many major perfumery and cosmetics brands for nearly 30 years. With offices in Miami, Dubai, Singapore, Jarkarta, Bangkok and Shanghai, TechnicoFlor distributes its products in more than 60 countries in the Middle East, Asia, Western Europe and Central Europe. With a total of 200 employees and a team of eight perfumers, the Group has consolidated sales of nearly 50 million Euros, 30% in France and 70% in international markets. It sales grew by 14% in 2016, while revenues grew by 12%.

US retail: Apocalypse or evolution?

American retail is in freefall, and its sales revenues have been deeply affected by 3,500 stores going out of business, not to mention the difficulties Macy’s, Sears and K-Mart are facing. Unlike the banking sector, the main actors of retail are rapidly restructuring their networks of sales points because of the rising price of rent - (...)
