Yves Rocher in €3.7m Cork investment
French cosmetics and clothing brand Yves Rocher has announced a €3.7m investment in the company’s Cork facility, located in the Kilbarry Business Park on Dublin Hill.
The investment will see the company upgrade the fabrication and manufacturing areas of the plant with the introduction of clean room technology to the site.
The investment is expected to create up to 30 jobs during construction and installation of the new facilities.
Yves Rocher came to Cork in 1981 and established its current facility in 1984.
The facility plays a key role for Yves Rocher, manufacturing products to final customer specification.
The company has grown employment from 200 to 270 over the last 18 months.
The site exported 66 million units of high quality skin care products in 2010 and that figure is projected to grow to 88 million units by 2015.
