Silab continues to expand with the launch of its third production unit

The supplier of natural active ingredients has officially opened its third production unit at its site in Brive-la-Gaillarde (Corrèze, France). This is the fifth inauguration since 1984, a bid the company says to continously expand.

The new 15 million euro invested 4,500 m2 workshop is said to enable Silab to double its production capacity of biological active molecules, in the form of isolating, purifying and concentrating, while also enabling it to pursue its sustainable development strategy by continuing to focus on innovation.

The facility is also said to have been designed in accordance with an ecologically responsible policy aligned with a level of safety, consistent with the company's existing industrial facility, which now covers a total area of 10,000 m².

The implementation of three production lines, high-tech equipment, and computerized management of the production process (meeting the GMP cosmetics standard) guarantees reliability and traceability at every key stage.”

According to Silab, a qualified team of technicians have been placed at the heart of the project, with particular attention made to the design of ergonomic workstations in order to prevent risks and improve working conditions.
