From R&D Lab to Contract Manufacturer

Hi,
Please help us bring our talents as cosmetic product formulators to a level where we're really helping the local economy. I'm Sherilee Backman, owner of Venus of Vermont, Inc. in the Cotton Mill in Brattleboro, VT, USA. We formulate all kinds of cosmetic, nutraceutical, and even household products for our customers, and do some small-scale manufacturing. We would love to continue this on a larger scale, and also develop our own lines, primarily for export. To do this, we want to comply with Good Manufacturing Practices by installing a better floor and ceiling, as well as cabinets and shelving, and bringing in packaging and material quantities of scale (think drums of essential oils!). We also need equipment, including a small heated kettle with a drop-in homogenizer, which will require additional water and electrical hook-ups. With your help, we can follow our business plan, bring in and train local help and create a small training center, develop a solid online presence, and manufacture products for global distribution that will help improve Brattleboro's economy. Your help in this venture is truly appreciated.
Thank you and best regards,
Sherilee
