European cosmetics maker to build large can factory in Dolnoslaskie


Aerosol International, a unit of Maxim Gruppe, a leading European manufacturer of cosmetics, will invest PLN 180m (approx. €44.3m) to build a big factory of aerosol cans for the cosmetics industry in Zgorzelec (Dolnoslaskie voivodship), in a local sub-zone of the Kamienna Gora Special Economic Zone, it emerged on 9 August. The project will create over 300 jobs.

The facility, whose construction will probably get underway before the end of the year, is billed as one of the biggest and most modern plants of its type in Europe. It will satisfy the entire demand for aerosol cans within the Maxim group, which has five cosmetics factories, in Germany, France and Luxembourg.

Rolf Giesen, co-owner of Maxim Gruppe, said that Zgorzelec, while not the cheapest one of the candidate sites considered by the company, was picked primarily for its excellent location, a crucial factor for a company that sells its products to markets both in Western and Eastern Europe; good infrastructure; and investor-friendly authorities.
