Overview of this buyer seeking European cosmetics companies

The Conglomerate was started about 20 years ago and has since expanded to chemicals, real estate, packaging, pharmaceuticals, surfactants and cosmetics among others. International operations comprise not only sales offices in several MENA markets but also affiliates in that region and in Europe.

Profile (strategy) of this MENA buyer seeking European cosmetics companies

The group’s manufacturing companies have achieved leading market positions through a focus on quality and use of the most advanced equipment from Europe and Japan. The knowledge from the surfactant and chemical businesses has also been used in the pharmaceutical and OTC division, for hand soap manufacturing for instance. Further, business integration has been achieved with the plastic and laminate packaging subsidiary. Another subsidiary focuses in bulk imports of oil and fats and is a partner of well-known international suppliers in the market it serves.

Strong growth in FMCG across the MENA region has led the Holding to decide on venturing further into cosmetics manufacturing to meet the needs of several markets. But rather than build a factory from scratch a decision has been made to buy an existing cosmetics factory in Europe.
