The Hamburg consumer goods and cosmetics manufacturer Beiersdorf lays the foundation stone for its new production plant in Leipzig-Seehausen on Wednesday (12 noon). 220 million euros are planned for the new plant. 200 jobs are to be created initially.
In addition, the cosmetics manufacturer wants to build a Europe-wide distribution center at the site, which will create 400 more jobs, as the company announced in June.
This is the “world’s largest investment by the company in one location”. Beiersdorf decided at the beginning of 2020 to build a new Florena plant in Leipzig-Seehausen, which should go into operation at the end of 2022. This made it clear that the previous location in Waldheim, Saxony, with 280 employees, would be given up in a few years, it was said at the time.
It is planned that Prime Minister Michael Kretschmer (CDU) will give a greeting at the meeting.
