Albéa focuses on its safety offer

Albéa Travel Designer has launched a new range of Travel&StaySafe customisable amenity kits to support the focus on travel hygiene post-COVID-19.

The range features masks, hydro-alcoholic gel, gloves etc and is designed to suit both airlines, rail operators, shipping companies and private transport companies.

The #Travel&StaySafe kits are made to order and can be customised to suit the brand. A variety of different mask types are available (KN95, FFP2, surgical type 1, reusable/ adult and child sizes), along with disposable lab coats, overcoats, gloves, disinfectant wipes, hand cleaning gel, or hydro-alcoholic solutions in standard or travel format.

The company is also launching an e-commerce platform where this Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and kits will be offered for sale with low minimum quantities.

The group has been actively supporting suppression of the virus through the production of pumps and tubes for hydro-alcoholic gel solutions, and with a range of local initiatives to distribute masks, hand disinfectants, protective visors, etc. for healthcare workers.

The wipes, spray pumps and pouches are produced in France on Albea’s sites; with reusable masks made in Portugal. Albéa was the first beauty packaging company to sign the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s New Plastics Economy Global Commitment in October 2018, and thereby is committed to producing 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable plastic packaging by 2025.It is collaborating with Ares, a French specialist in professional reintegration, whose team packages the #Travel&StaySafe kits.

The kits are already being offered by two majors airlines, the biggest taxi corporation in France, the Ile-de-France region as well as some consultancy and private owned companies.

Albea recently acquired Orchard and Fasten to support its amenity provision. Orchard Custom beauty (based in Toronto) is a full service, custom product development and manufacturing company active across the colour, skincare, haircare, bags and accessories sectors; and Fasten (based in the Netherlands) designs and develops cosmetics packaging and full service, with a focus on custom collections in fragrance, home fragrance, skincare, color cosmetics and personal care.
