In 1950, a company was formed in Madrid to manufacture and distribute a range of hairdressing products, such as Oreol-Tratante, Oreol-Régé and Imedia, all of which were successful, thanks to their effectiveness and innovation.
In 1971 L’Oréal built a plant in Burgos to meet the international needs of the Professional Products division and, in 2014 a biomass plant was built at the site, supplying the factory with thermal energy, cooling and electricity, and making it carbon-neutral one year later. Three years later, Burgos became our Group´s first ‘dry factory’, as all the water used in manufacturing is recycled in a closed loop.
Today, the plant is one of L’Oreál Group’s top performers, a true example of 4.0 industry, not only in terms of its positive impact on the environment, but also from a social perspective, with educational programs such as the Escuela de Excelencia Industrial and partnerships with special employment centers. In 2008, L’Oréal Spain brought all the country’s divisions together, with a corporate headquarters located in Madrid and today it is recognized as a leading innovation company throughout its value chain.
Pioneer in the application of technologies to improve the consumer experience and service at the point of sale and with a powerful sustainability program embodied in the 2020 commitments and which are now renewed with the 2030 ambition, “L’Oréal for the Future”.
