Avon Operations Polska is the largest and the most technologically advanced Avon factory in the world. The innovative production complex located in Garwolin employs almost 1,000 people. The factory supplies cosmetics to customers from around 50 countries on 3 continents.
Avon Operations Polska will focus on technology development and increase the production of cosmetics by 25%.
The changes at the Avon factory in Garwolin cover numerous projects of various sizes and cover a number of areas of the plant’s operations. One of the factory’s priorities is the implementation of “smart / industry 4.0” solutions. It will be equally important for Avon Garwolin to implement environmentally friendly changes, it was reported.
The investment plan in Avon Garwolin is already being implemented. In the second quarter of 2021, an automatic palletizing system will be launched, which will ultimately support the 17 most heavily loaded production lines. The investment will also include facilities for mixing new recipes, thanks to which the factory will expand the production of creams and emulsions. The first new line will be launched in the third quarter of this year, and more will be launched in 2022-2023, it was also indicated.
It was also decided to invest in a modern cogeneration installation that will provide some of the necessary electricity and heat for production processes. It will reduce the carbon footprint by more than 20% in the first year after commissioning. The installation will start in early 2022.
Avon Distribution Polska was spun off as a separate company from the Garwolin factory complex in 2016. Its task is to prepare and send orders to consultants in Poland, the Czech Republic and Germany.
