The world's sixth largest flavour and fragrance production group has opened 4 new manufacturing units at its Bar-sur-Loup plant.
On Friday 8th February 2013, the world's sixth largest flavour and fragrance production group, V.Mane at Fils opened four new microcapsule manufacturing units at its La Sarré site in Bar-sur-Loup on the Cote D'Azur in France.
An expansion of over 1,800 m² at a total cost of 32.5 million euros "directly creating around one hundred jobs", Jean Mane, CEO of the family company was delighted to announce in front of many elected officials. The facility is now spread across 5,088 m². Over the 2009-2010 period, the first extension of La Sarrée cost 17.5 million euros. Mane will therefore have invested a total of 50 million euros over the last four years to strengthen its flavour and fragrance manufacturing capacity on this site. In five years, it has also sustained 300 flavour and perfumery sector jobs across these facilities.
In addition to this extension of its Alpes-Maritimes production site, which is the final phase of expansion works for the flavour and fragrance manufacturing unit for the development of seamless capsules, the group is planning new developments in 2013 in China, Indonesia (construction of factories), Japan (purchase of a small building), the United States (expansion of its production facilities) and Brazil.
V.Mane et Fils, founded in 1871, is still a 100% family-owned company with 40 subsidiaries and 21 production facilities across the world. It invests 9% of its turnover in R&D, totalling 530 million euros in 2011.
