Efficiency & Precision
From barcodes to robots
Two years ago, we began our Lab 4.0 journey – to accelerate our operations from factory to fragrance labs and increase capacity and facilitate production. Today, our compounding and application laboratories are operating as mini-factories. They are implementing automation, robotics, digital tools and lean management, and we are monitoring service rate, punctuality rate, automation ratio, lead and cycle time.
Three of our facilities now use an exclusive, proprietary robotic solution for sample production, which has increased their production capabilities to 800 EDTs/day, with one EDT sample delivered every 28 seconds.
In January 2020, we inaugurated our flagship Perfumery Center at our Geneva headquarters. This high-tech facility boasts a fully automated sampling lab and storage warehouse which has increased productivity by 25%. It also utilises autonomous robots to deliver samples.
