Lipson is investing heavily in make-up

Lipson, a contract manufacturing firm headquartered in Diadema, in the outskirts of Sao Paulo, just completed the last stage of a major investment programme started two years ago in the field of make-up. A family-owned company created 27 years ago, Lipson currently employs some 700 people on two production sites.

Lipson recently completed the construction of a second plant. Entirely dedicated to makeup, the new production unit spreads over 3000 sqm on two floors.

During the past twenty-four months this 100% leading Brazilian subcontractor in beauty products has significantly accelerated the pace of its industrial investments. At the request of their customers, company leaders decided to work twice as hard in the make-up area and to "offer themselves" what is best in terms of production and filling equipment. As a result, a brand new second production site of 3000 m2 on two floors, the first, dedicated to the production of powders and the second to other products (lipsticks, lipgloss, mascaras, etc.). Best of all, the installation of a clean room and a third storage building of 5000 m2.

One of the company’s special features: aside from the latest Korean-conditioning machines recently installed in the factory, the whole engineering was developed "in-house".

Already running!

"We are almost done," says Regina Helena R.T. Rodriguez, the Head of the company. "This new production tool fully dedicated to make-up and which is already partly operational will be up and running early next year." The entire company will be SAP managed in a few weeks and the historic factory extending over 5000 m2 will continue to be dedicated to the conditioning of perfume and hygiene products.

Already partly running, this new production facility will be fully (...)

Already partly running, this new production facility will be fully completed by the beginning of 2017.

"A lot of foreign companies are currently calling on us to produce and condition their cosmetics," emphasises Regina Helena R.T. Rodriguez. "This sector is on the rise in Brazil like elsewhere and our former production facilities were no longer sufficient to cope with demand!"
