Integrated Innovation Hub Lures Personal Care and Beauty Businesses

The appeal of a highly-integrated supply chain hub designed to support companies within the personal care and beauty industry that can benefit from complementary capabilities and creative synergies has attracted two leading manufacturers and 300 new employees to New Albany.

Alene Candles from Milford, New Hampshire and Axium Plastics from Mississauga, Ontario, Canada will both break ground on new facilities in New Albany’s Personal Care and Beauty Innovation Campus.

Alene’s specially-designed burn test labs can test up to 1,500 candles per day.

Axium Plastics manufactures plastic containers using a production platform of the latest extrusion blow molding and injection blow molding technologies. The company plans to expand their manufacturing and research and development operations with their new 110,000 square foot facility.
