The joint venture now operating under the name of ‘Colep Scitra Aerosols’ will see the expansion of Scitra's aerosol filling plant in Sharjah UAE to align it with the international standards required by multi-national branded companies in the personal care and home care industries whilst also extending Colep’s aerosol manufacturing contract.
Both parties are set to bring their respective expertise and knowledge of the regional and of the international markets, thus creating what they believe will be a first class operation which will serve the PAFTA and COMESA countries of the Middle East and Africa.
Speaking on the collaboration, Robin Smythe, Managing Director of Albatha Home and Personal Care, Scitra's parent company says that; “in joining forces with Colep, we will be able to offer to current and future customers; world class manufacturing closer to the market, improved supply chain, shorter lead-times, reduced inventory, and improved reaction times to changing demands.”
Colep rapidly expanding its global presence ...
This collaboration comes just weeks after the packaging manufacturer announced it had acquired an aerosol personal care products manufacturing plant in Santiago de Querétaro, Mexico.
The facility in Aerosoles y Liquidos continues to manufacture the same type of packaging products but now under the trading name 'Colep S.A. de C.V', which strategically, the company says gives it a steadier footing in both Central and North America.
That acquisition in Mexico built on a September announcement that the company was collaborating with One Asia Network on a Manufacturing and Technology Agreement, which covers the whole of their respective organizations and thereby offered supply coverage from Australia, Japan, China, Thailand, India, Poland, Germany, Spain, Portugal and Brazil.
