With the introduction of cutting-edge equipment, there will be a pilot area at the brand-new location to experiment with advanced work processes as well as a center of excellence for powders set up on the current premises, according to ArtCosmetics.
“The project relating to the new headquarters is essential in order to increase growth over the next four years,” said chief executive officer Pierfranco Accardo. “By innovation, we mean not only in the development of our formulas, but also in the investment of high-tech tools to ensure we deliver on our corporate mission for excellence.”
ArtCosmetics has 280 customers in 29 countries. In 2014, the company opened the first North American office in New York City. Since then the US market has become one-third of ArtCosmetics’ turnover. The family owned business, founded by current chairman Piero Origo in 1990, was one of the first companies situated in the so-called “Italian Cosmetic Valley.”
“The founder’s spirit, based on highly technical research, is the company’s calling card,” said Accardo, “We are an enterprise that produces specialties, not commodities, which is at the basis of our corporate mission and goal to keep providing clients with award-winning ArtLab formulas.”
