Zotos International Expansion
Based in Geneva, N.Y., Zotos International is a professional beauty products company that manufactures and markets a full range of hair-care, hair-texture and hair-color products. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Shiseido, one of Japan’s largest cosmetics and beauty companies.
Zotos International’s plant in Geneva employs approximately 300 people, producing salon products and related packaging. In early 2009, Zotos sought financial assistance for an expansion project at its Geneva plant that would bring additional manufacturing capacity in-house, allowing the company to in-source its aerosol and plastic bottle blow-molding production facilities.
