Eigenmann & Veronelli, a leading player in the sales, marketing and distribution of speciality chemicals and food ingredients, has opened the new Beauty & Personal Care and Paint & Coatings laboratory to serve its customers and best-in-class suppliers throughout the EMEA region.
Located in Bresso, on the doorstep of Milan, Italy, the new 230 square metre laboratory – part of the OpenZone scientific campus, a place that embodies the exchange of knowledge between research and business – expands the EV ’s technical capabilities to now include Paint & Coatings and Beauty & Personal Care, in addition to its existing technical capabilities in the food sector.
“The opening of the EV Group Academy Center on the doorstep of Milan reinforces our commitment to serve our supplier partners and customers not only as a distributor, but also as a formulator and solutions provider, driving innovation in the business,” said Gabriele Bonomi, EV Group CEO. “This is just the beginning of further investments to strengthen our services and technical capabilities in the EMEA region, fostering our commitment to creating value for partners.”
“We are really glad to welcome Eigenmann & Veronelli at OpenZone and happy to see how our campus is confirming itself as the ideal place to do research, innovation and foster successful entrepreneurial projects,” commented Alessio Pinciroli, General Manager at OpenZone. “We believe in the power of open innovation and collaboration, and we are confident that Eigenmann & Veronelli will be able to bring their vast experience and know-how to the benefit of our community and the industry.”
The new laboratory is designed to support customers and suppliers by providing formulation, training, plus customer seminars and academies, support and guidance, alongside innovative materials and concepts. The laboratory is fully equipped for developing formulations, solving technical problems, and providing technical assistance.
Part of a network of four laboratories with market-focused experts who exchange knowledge and formulation expertise, the new facility was designed to hold future investments in expanding EV’s technical support into make-up, skin care, hair care, as well as construction, decorative paints, industrial coatings, wood coatings, inks & pigments and adhesives markets.
