December 8, 2008

IRELAND: Swedish cosmetics firm Oriflame has opened its new, $3 million research and development center at Bray Business Park in County Wicklow, Ireland. First opened in 2000 with 28 scientists, the R&D center was originally planned to employ a total of 50. The number of scientists has increased over the years to 92, and the company further plans to expand to 127 over the next five years.

The new facility will serve as the company’s cosmetics center of excellence for product research and development, including regulatory affairs and product safety.

Oriflame has been in Ireland since 1979 when it opened a manufacturing facility in Dublin’s Sandyford area.
