In words of Agustín Gómez Loeches, Member of the Board and son of the Mixer & Pack founders ¨We are really proud of this award, the result of a great work carried out by our team, which gives us strength and motivates us to keep on following the path towards on-going improvement. Making matters such as sustainable future visible to the society is one of our company’s main goal and core values. ¨
Mixer & Pack took its first steps more than 25 years ago as a result of the commitment to quality handmade high perfumery. Today it has evolved and become the most state-of-the-art innovating perfumery and cosmetics manufacturer in Spain.
This award implies positioning and strengthening Mixer & Pack’s leadership in quality and good manufacturing prices. Our willingness to keep providing the best service to customers and suppliers stands out, notwithstanding our commitment to do so while building a better world.
Mixer & Pack for more than 4 years has been involved in a strategic plan based on savings, energy efficiency and care for the environment. It has taken part in the renown STEEEP (Support & Training for an excellent Energy Efficiency Performance) project, managed by the Eurochamber, and has become a business example at European level. The outcome turned this perfumery and cosmetics manufacturer in one of Europe’s biggest success stories, where there are only two Spanish companies and more into particular only one beauty company.
The continuous implementation of improvements and actions focused on saving energy and internal awareness campaigns enabled Mixer & Pack to be granted the ISO 500001:2011 certification. This worldwide energy certification guarantees there is an optimised system, efficient and conscious use of energy and resources at Mixer & Pack.
Due to the measures adopted as part as the implementation of the ISO standard, Mixer & Pack in the last year has attained savings amounting to approximately €10,000 resulting from reducing energy consumption in 96,398 KWh, equivalent to releasing 3,4679.16 Tn of CO2 less to the atmosphere. Thus, the new certificate allows us a better management of energy assets released to the atmosphere, contributing to reducing our carbon footprint and greenhouse gas effect.
According to Javier Palacios, Manufacturing Director at Mixer & Pack, ¨ this process should consist on on-going improvement. For this reason, we have implemented an “energy committee” whose main aim is to keep an eye on improvement and training throughout the company by sensitising and raising awareness on the use of energy efficiency. ¨
In the immediate future, Mixer & Pack has planned the construction of a new manufacturing centre in 2021 equipped with modern 4.0 industry technologies, as well as using even more efficient energy.
