After 12 years of professional and close cooperation with Oriola Finland Oy as a distributor and marketer of the brands Eau Thermale Avène, A-Derma, Ducray and Klorane, Pierre Fabre Dermo-Cosmétique Nordic will establish its own branch office from 1.1.2018 in Espoo, Finland.
During this partnership, Oriola Finland Oy has developed Pierre Fabre’s brands on the Finnish market and acquired a solid position, especially for Eau Thermale Avène. Pierre Fabre will now continue to develop further its brands with more investments and bring new dynamic to the market, in order to help grow the global dermo-cosmetics category in Finnish pharmacies.
The new branch office will be in charge of local marketing and sales activities, all support functions being located in the Nordic hub in Denmark. Pierre Fabre has signed a new agreement with Oriola Finland Oy as a wholesaler starting 1.1.2018. Oriola’s employees that have been working exclusively with the Pierre Fabre Dermo-Cosmétique brands will join the new entity.
“We would like to take the opportunity to thank Oriola Finland Oy for the fruitful cooperation over the last 12 years, building our brands and making them what they are today in Finland. Finally, we would like to thank you for the strong partnership so far and look forward to the new and positive cooperation with a highly motivated team”, says Elisabeth Halvorsen, Nordic General Manager from Pierre Fabre Dermo-Cosmétique.
“We are very happy to continue our close cooperation with Pierre Fabre in future. We wish all the best for Pierre Fabre and the new Pierre Fabre team in Finland”, says Kimmo Virtanen, Executive Vice President at Oriola.
