Global cosmetics giant L’Oréal announced on Tuesday it is investing €15 million in its Aulnay-sous-Bois factory near Paris, to turn it into a specialist high-end fragrance manufacturer for the thriving L’Oréal Luxe division.

A spokesperson for L’Oréal told the AFP agency that, until now, the factory and its 220 employees specialised in the production of foundations, facial skincare and sun creams.

The project is proof of “L’Oréal's willingness to adapt its industrial organisation smoothly to market challenges, while promoting the know-how of each of the group's plants,” stated L’Oréal in a press release.

The Aulnay plant will become the fourth L’Oréal Luxe industrial site in France, alongside those in Gauchy, specialised in mass-produced fragrances, in Caudry, focusing on skincare and foundations, and in Lassigny, which manufactures make-up.

In total, L’Oréal operates 40 factories worldwide. Its 11 French plants account for 26.5% of the group's global output.
