TRUSS Cosmetics grew by 18% in 2014, with net sales reaching BRL 60 million. The company also forecasts a18% rise in 2015. Capitalising on its strong position in its domestic market and on great acceptance in overseas markets, the brand has prepared an expansion plan and recently opened an office in Miami, USA, with intention to "shakeup the American market." The company also exports to other countries such as Spain, Portugal, Italy, Chile and in the United Arab Emirates.

Manuella Bossa, Director and founder of TRUSS Cosmetics, highlights this important step for the brand. "We have considered every smallest detail to implement our expansion to the United States. We prepared a lot, studied the local market and hired a highly competent staff for the operation,” she explains.

This expansion has always been part of the company’s strategic plan. "Opening an office in the US has several commercial advantages and may become a key factor off success in this growing but high competitive market. Your U.S. customers see you differently when you are based inside the country," adds Bossa.

TRUSS Cosmetics expects its US headquarters to equal the level of Brazilian sales within four years. The company is investing USD 15 million a year in the international market and for 2015 it is expected that the activities of the US subsidiary should represent 15% of company revenues.
