When French-based fragrance and flavors firm Gattefossé needed a new US-based cosmetics R&D Laboratory, they turned to DME to put together a team that would provide a full turnkey solution. DME partnered with Johnsrud Architects and L.R. Constanzo Construction, both of whom were able to bring a deep resume of experience in laboratory design and construction. Our history of working together provided to Gattefossé a seamless team of professionals dedicated to this important venture.
The project involved renovation of a space adjacent to existing Gattefossé offices in a three-story flexible office building. The laboratory includes Analytical, Emulsions, Pharma, Cosmetics and Make-up Color Labs.
The Technical Center of Excellence brings together pharmaceutical and personal care application laboratories in a 5,300 sq. ft. space with state-of-the-art equipment. The technical team at Gattefossé is able to offer an essential interface with both pharmaceutical and personal care customers throughout North America by providing formulation troubleshooting, inspiration and technical support. For pharmaceuticals, emphasis will be given to oral bioavailability enhancement and modified release projects. For personal care, the laboratory will develop specific formulas to meet local needs and trends.
DME is pleased to have been chosen to partner with Gattefossé to deliver a client-friendly showcase facility, further demonstrating their commitment to a customer centric philosophy.
