Lehmann&Voss&Co. has acquired the majority in the BIOPHIL Group in July of this year. The BIOPHIL Group, headquartered in Origgio (near Milan) and another four subsidiaries in Switzerland, France, Spain and Slovakia is a distribution company for raw material specialties in the cosmetics industry. With this step Lehmann&Voss&Co. strengthens on the one hand its position within the cosmetics industry and on the other hand its European presence. The name and the positioning of the BIOPHIL Group will remain unchanged for the moment. An intense co-operation between BIOPHIL and LEHVOSS has already existed for more than three years as an alliance under the name of iDEA. The LEHVOSS Group now serves the European cosmetics industry from seven branch offices and acts as a distributor with a European penetration as a reliable and proven partner for principals.
