TECHPACK, completes the creation of TECHPACK ASIA.

Paris, France, April 25, 2003: TECHPACK, a subsidiary of Pechiney Group and a
world leader in plastic packaging for cosmetics and perfumes, announces that it
has just received the approval of the relevant administrative authorities to
create its Indonesian company, TECHPACK ASIA.

As announced last October, TECHPACK now holds a 95 % stake, while Mr. Nurtjahya
Tanudisastro - owner of the Indonesian Tiger Group - holds a 5 % stake in
TECHPACK ASIA. As a partner, Mr Nurtjahya Tanudisastro will personally continue
to fully support the development of TECHPACK ASIA. David Tanudisastro is
appointed Vice President of Operations. The Board of Directors is chaired by
Jean-Paul Imbert, Techpack Senior Vice-President for Sales and CEO of
COSMETECH-MABLY INTERNATIONAL, Techpack's trading company for promotionals and

The cosmetic assets of the TIGER group - based in Semarang (Java) - i.e. 120
injection presses and 6 surface treatment lines, will be contributed in their
entirety to the new company. TECHPACK ASIA will also include the activities of
CT-PACK, which was previously held equally by TECHPACK and the TIGER Group. The
sales of the new company will initially reach $ 20 million.

Richard Seguin, Chief Executive Officer of TECHPACK, declared: "This operation
will give TECHPACK greater access to competitive cost structures, particularly
for short production runs of compact cases and lipsticks with complex printing
or make-up and beauty care jars. TECHPACK ASIA will also ensure a significant
position on the very fast-growing ASEAN market."
