Faber-Castell To Open Manufacturing Plant in US

Faber-Castell Cosmetics products Earthbound and Organic Nail Care

Company's first US production site will be in Elgin, IL.

Private label cosmetics maker Faber-Castell Cosmetics is opening its first US manufacturing plant in Elgin, IL. The announcement came from Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner and Faber-Castell Cosmetics, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.

The facility will produce cosmetic pencils for the North American market.
 
“I am proud to announce this project during the 40th year of Faber-Castell Cosmetics,” said company president Countess Mary von Faber-Castell. “The US facility will become Faber-Castell Cosmetics’ beta factory with exceptional, industry-standard processes and systems, in addition to offering US customers the same speed-to-market and convenience now enjoyed by Europe and Brazil.”

“It is an honor to welcome Faber-Castell to the Illinois manufacturing family,” said Gov. Rauner, who visited with the company in Stein, Germany in late spring during a trade mission to Poland and Germany. “Faber-Castell has a remarkable legacy in Germany, and I am proud that they have chosen Illinois to be the next phase in their journey. We look forward to working with them and helping them thrive in Elgin.”
