Eurofragance is making progress with its strategic development and innovation plan, with an upgrade of its plant in Mexico. The objective is to optimize lead times, increase storage space and reduce energy consumption.
According to Andrés Pagés, Eurofragance’s general manager for Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean, “The development of this project is a clear investment in expanding the business in Latin America. After the investment made in 2015, this renovation confirms that our Mexican plant is still growing”.
The upgrade, which was completed successfully after a month of continuous work, included the installation of a new 85 m2 warehouse on the top floor that entails the increase of 45 Tn of storage space, the renovation of the washing area and other general improvements to the plant. In addition, this investment includes a 22-ton tank of dipropylene glycol that reduces electricity costs and optimises times and movements in the factory.
This refurbishment is just the first stage. In the next improvement phase, Eurofragance Mexico will enlarge the Quality Control area, significantly improve washing equipment and install a cold room to store part of the stock.
The rehabilitation project, both its first and second phase, is a key step in the expansion and growth strategy of Eurofragance in the area. The Mexican filial has already cut the lead time in 2,5 days thanks to the works done in the factory’s facilities and in its warehouse. And has also improved the company’s service in Mexico and the Central American market by increasing a 25% the customer service level comparing with the previous year.
