Perfumery and cosmetics glass manufacturer Stoelzle Masnières Parfumerie is to boost production at its plant.

The group will invest €20 million in a furnace rebuild at the facility in the Hauts de France region, northern France.

The investment will include a fifth production line to better fulfill customer demands for high end perfumes and cosmetic items.

Etienne Gruyez, Président Directeur Général at Stoelzle Masnières Parfumerie, said: "Even in these difficult times, it is our priority to keep on investing in all our sites.

"In France, the new extended furnace will enable us to maintain our position as a centre of excellence for the manufacturing of high-end flacons and jars for the international perfume and cosmetics industries."

Construction work will start next month with the furnace ready for production at the beginning of January 2021.
