Stoelzle Group has invested €5 million on a new production line at its plant based in Masnières, France.

The production line is for the Perfume & Cosmetics business, and will begin operating in early November 2015.

Stoelzle intends to make Masnières a centre of excellence within the Group, and has launched an expansion programme based on three key pillars:

• To offer continuous improvement in performance, so as to accelerate the development of new projects and high-end ‘flacons’ for the Perfume & Cosmetics segment;

• Industrial optimisation of four production lines and the development of key technical competences; and

• Improved performance and lower costs.

This new step in revitalising the glass production at the Masnières plant is part of an industrial modernisation process and improvement of general working conditions launched in May 2015.

These investments will continue in 2016 onwards.
