VariBlend acquired the state-of-the-art HUTT automatic fill- and final assembly equipment for its 20mm MiniMix. As part of VariBlend’s recently announced strategic partnership with Cosmax, one of the HUTT systems will be installed at Cosmax’s Solon, OH headquarters. A second system is installed in Germany, for a combined annual capacity of 20 million units. The new equipment will further enhance the VariBlend –Cosmax alliance, and benefit customers through streamlined supply chain efficiencies in the lipgloss category, as well as eye, face and skin care segments. The slim profile and color blending capabilities of the VariBlend 20mm MiniMix make it an exciting new packaging alternative for products delivered in various strengths.
In other news, VariBlend recently announced a call-for-entries for the 2016 Formulation Challenge. The entries this year will be for the increasingly popular mini- (travel-) sized products—based on the company’s 20mm mini dispenser.
