For the fourth year running, UBIFRANCE will be organising the French Pavilion at the Private Label Manufacturers Association (PLMA) trade show, to be held in Amsterdam (Netherlands) in May 2010. The Pavilion will be located in the Randstadhal – Holland Complex (Booths 1601 to 1734).
Manufacturers of household cleaning products will make up the largest contingent of companies on the Pavilion. During the trade show, they will be unveiling new ranges of ecological, biodegradable and all-natural products. In the field of cosmetics and beauty, a sector that is of increasing interest for private-label manufacturers in France, there will also be six companies in attendance.
Companies on the French Pavilion will be presenting their latest innovative products, including toothpaste in chewable tablet form (for brushing one’s teeth while travelling, for instance, and without the need for a toothbrush) from Pharmatt (www.frescoryl.com), and a single-use applicator for healthcare products from Laboratoire Biopharme (www.laboratoirebiopharme.com).
French private-label manufacturers are also offering new packaging for products that are organic, healthy (free of additives and preservatives), environmentally friendly and sustainable.
The French Pavilion will feature perfume, fragrance and jewellery designers, alongside manufacturers of fire extinguishers, matches, candles and household goods. There will also be specialists in household cleaning products, soap and cosmetics. These companies will be presenting their innovative approach to products as diverse as face masks, gel detergent, organic cleaners and soap. Companies on the pavilion are already established with the major players in French and international distribution.
In France, private label is experiencing increasing success, with consumers seeking to optimise their purchasing power. Private label reached 34% of global market share in France in 2009 (source: PLMA), which is a record for the sector. The cosmetics, beauty and household-goods sectors, which used to be reluctant to use private label, now also rely on private-label ranges in order to meet rising demand.
The companies on the French Pavilion offer a wide range of products across various sectors. Alcia Laboratoires (www.alcialab.net) and BCM Cosmetique (www.bcmcosmetique.fr) both specialise in cosmetics. Companies in the hygiene and healthcare sector will include Duopole (www.groupe-samap.com), Laboratoire Biopharme (www.laboratoirebiopharme.com), Pharmatt (www.frescoryl.com) and Savonnerie de l’Atlantique (www.savon-atlantique.com).
Household products will also be represented, through Ab7 Industries (www.ab7-industries.fr), Ecologistique (www.ecologistique.fr), Eurotab Operations (www.eurotab.eu), International Plastic Industrie (www.ipi.fr), Laco (www.lacoshop.fr), Manka Creations (www.manka-creations.com), Remue Ménage (www.remuemenage.info) and Sodepac International (www.sodepac.com).
Bambou (www.bambou-fashion.fr) and Fantabijoux (www.fantabijoux.fr) both make jewellery and other accessories, while Devineau (www.bougies-la-francaise.com) and Y.not? (www.ynot.fr) specialise in decorative items for the home.
Aktikem is a specialist in fire extinguishers (www.aktikem.fr), while Flam’Up makes matches (www.flamup.fr). Arjowiggins Graphic makes stationery (www.arjowiggins.fr) and, finally, Fackelmann France manufactures vacuum-cleaner bags (www.fackelmann.fr).

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
