77 participants representing 44 companies from 14 countries met at Schwan Cosmetics in Heroldsberg on October 6th for the first global supplier day.
With this event, the company aimed to show its appreciation to the suppliers, but at the same time to give a clear signal for the future:
The event focused on the knowledge transfer of trends and technologies – a must to be able to face the challenges of the future together.
After exciting talks, the company presented the Schwan Cosmetics Supplier Award to three suppliers who made particularly outstanding contributions last year. Besides, a life-time award went to a supplier for his over 40 years of trusted partnership.
25 years ago a very special cosmetic pencil with a twist mechanism was developed. The technique of pouring lead mass directly into the pencil's plastic case was at that time considered revolutionary. To this day this eye- and lipliner is one of the most manufactured products at the Heroldsberg location.
To meet the demanding requirements of application and wear characteristics of modern formulas and to stay at the top, it is imperative to continuously push manufacturing- and casting technology further ahead. This was also one of the reasons to invest 5 mio Euro last year in the reconstruction of the cosmetics factory in Heroldsberg. Together with the „birthday boy" this is where the company now produces various other very successful products under the most modern conditions.

This also was part of a giveaway event:
Whoever finds a participant card attached to a balloon and sends it back to Schwan Cosmetics, will receive attractive prices.
