Paris-based Groupe GM, a producer of cosmetic amenities, has opened two distribution hubs in China and Taiwan, consolidating its presence in Asia, and has also revealed plans to launch a structure in Dubai.
The subsidiary in Changzhou, China, has been named Jiaomu Cosmetic, while the business in Taiwan is called Paris Beauté.
Laurent Marchand, President of Groupe GM, said: “This is a milestone in the company's history and a clear message that our expansion plan is serious and consistent. We have intensified our global expansion process in the last few years by forming joint ventures and acquiring new distributors. Thanks to a network of exclusive distributors, Groupe GM’s vision to make well-being and beauty accessible to everyone is a reality in the most prestigious hotels and spas worldwide.”
Duty Zhu, General Manager of Jiaomu Cosmetic, added: “Groupe GM’s hospitality lines are a natural fit in premises of exception and character – hotels that set themselves apart through refined details. With Groupe GM’s exclusive products, we will bring a touch of French flair to hotel rooms in China and across Asia.”
Meanwhile Tanya Hu, General Manager of Paris Beauté, explained: “Taiwan attracts millions of visitors from Hong Kong, Japan and Korea, a very demanding clientele renowned for its refined taste. Groupe GM’s portfolio of branded amenities perfectly respond to the demand of these increasingly savvy travellers and we are confident that, thanks to their range of diverse and high-quality amenities, Groupe GM will allow Taiwanese hoteliers to stand out from the competition while going the extra mile with their guests.”
Groups GM creates a variety of cosmetics amenity brands including Nuxe, Gemology and Atelier Cologne. It also is contracted to produce own-label products for hotel groups such as Kempinski (pictured).
