Design, manufacture and commissioning of a lotions manufacturing platform


Our teams designed, manufactured and commissioned a 10T skid for the storage and production of mineral water as well as for the production of various lotions for the Vichy and La Roche-Posay brands.

The Boccard teams are proud of the outcome of this innovative project carried out with L’Oréal: the platform is equipped with an automatic loading system for raw materials on the upper level as well as new versions of semi-automatic tank doors, facilitating the intervention of the operators. The use of virtual reality by THE was also a real asset on this project, allowing a precise layout of the installation (3D laser survey of the area) and collaborative reviews of 3D models.

“This facility will allow us to increase our production and will be dedicated to lotions and micellar waters,” explains Jean Yves Larraufie, Director of CAP L’Oréal Vichy (400 employees) and La RochePosay (100 employees). Given the growth of the brands, we had to adapt our production tool size while respecting the best standards of the cosmetics industry for very sensitive formulas. Designed with a French company and developed with our on-site teams, including users, this line features the latest advances in terms of ergonomics and traceability.”
