Mibelle acquires majority shareholding in QBC/ABS, England


The Mibelle Group is expanding its business with exclusive brands. With effect from 1 January 2015, it acquired the majority of shares in the Quantum Beauty Company (QBC/ABS), whose portfolio includes brands such as Lee Stafford, Arganoil and Salon Science. These brands are sold worldwide and are usually offered exclusively in each country to one customer or sales channel, for example Boots in England.

This acquisition marks a targeted continuation of the Mibelle Group strategy. The first step on this path to expansion was in 2012 with the acquisition of the cosmetics range Nirvana Spa. Over the last 2 years, this line of business has grown substantially and will continue to be an important growth driver in the future. In combination with the newly acquired business, this will allow us to enter into new international markets and offer our customers a broad spectrum of brands for different consumer segments. Our new
portfolio provides an attractive alternative to the private label concept, which in other countries is frequently only used for entry-level product ranges.

Mibelle will be using its established infrastructure in Buchs and Bradford for new developments and for manufacturing the products.
