History


The adventure starts in 1972 when Georges Marchand decides to create his own business around a simple idea: to provide added value to the hospitality specialists by offering them quality cosmetic products in partnership with renowned brands. The « personalised amenity product » is born.

L’Oréal with Ô de Lancôme was first to support the project. The immediate success paved the way; 40 years later, with a unique portfolio of over 30 brands, Groupe GM still expands and develops its business with an international network of exclusive agents operating over 70 countries.
