Naturex has doubled the size of its Avignon site to include more industrial and logistics capabilities, optimized areas for research and development and quality-control formulation zones.
The company said the expansion of the Avignon site, which will include 10,000 square meters of additional space, will double the total size of the headquarters which includes production facilities, operational divisions and other group services. For a total investment of €12 million, Naturex said the new space will allow the group to anticipate market developments both in terms of production capacity and storage (4,500 square meters of production space, 1,000 square meters of additional storage space), as well as innovation, thanks to specific spaces dedicated to R&D and quality control.
“The new dimension of the Avignon site will boost our offer by allowing us to anticipate market expectations and optimize the development of our future projects on an international level," commented Naturex's Chairman and CEO, Thierry Lambert. “We are proud to be able to continue developing globally from this location in France and to contribute to the growth of our business sector while adhering to responsible and sustainable practices."
A large ingredient formulation zone was also created and the building has eco-friendly design (insulation, double-flow ventilation, eco-designed wood furniture certified FSC) and a water treatment plant will be integrated into the site environment.
