A model of efficiency to meet consumer expectations
The upgrading process has increased the Karlsruhe plant’s productivity and speed of execution, particularly on very high speed lines. This benefits consumers, who can be served more quickly, but also employees: the work they do is valued more highly, and ergonomics and safety are strengthened for everyone. Automation is also synonymous with better environmental performance, especially by reducing energy consumption. All these advantages make the site a model of high-tech operational excellence for the group.
The Lassigny site in France: agility and flexibility
The plant in Lassigny specialises in anhydrous make-up(2)
and exclusive fragrance series for the luxury sector, and forms part of the L’Oréal Luxe Pole of Excellence in France. What really gives this plant its advantage is its "tailor-made" approach. It is equipped to produce with excellence either large or exclusive series, and can thus adapt to meet specific consumer demands.

When the Giorgio Armani brand dreams up limited-edition make-up products to echo immediately the themes of each fashion collection, it offers exclusive and luxurious products for the consumer, and also a real challenge for the operations teams. At Lassigny, to do so, the processes have been re-engineered: cutting-edge production technology controlled by a team of specialist operators, until final assembly "by hand" for these exceptional products. The plant has 10 packaging lines in all, controlled by operators with very sharp know-how and expertise in luxury.
