ILEOS has acquired Le Papillon Inc, a leader in contract filling and samples for fragrances and cosmetics. This acquisition reinforces ILEOS’ leading role in supplying unidose and samples for the beauty industry through its dedicated division, BIOPLAN, managed by Ludovic Anceau.
After the integration of Le Papillon, ILEOS will achieve a turnover of 388 million euros in 2012, thus confirming its position as global leader, and allowing it to strengthen its position in the United States.
Pierre Hemar, president, ILEOS, said: "We are delighted to bring Le Papillon into the ILEOS family. It is offering us the opportunity to further develop our know-how in fragrance unidose filling, gift & promotional items and better serve our customers in the United States, which is a core geography for us."
Watson Warriner, who will continue in his role as President of Le Papillon, adds, "I am very pleased to have this partnership with such a strong and renowned Group, it brings an international perspective to Le Papillon that complements its existing position in the United States, and gives significant potential for further innovation."
