[LAT]

Akciju sabiedribas “Dzintars” vesture ir aizsakusies pagajuša gadsimta vidu, kad, butiba, tika likti pamati parfimerijas un kosmetikas rupniecibas nozarei Latvija. 1849. gada Riga tika dibinata Heinriha Adolfa Brigera ziepju un parfimerijas fabrika, kas ražoja ziepes, sveces un veica nenozimiga daudzuma smaržu un odekolonu iepildišanu no Francijas ievestam gatavam kompozicijam.

XIX gadsimta otraja puse un XX gadsimta sakuma dažadas Latvijas pilsetas radas nelielas firmas, kas laboratorijas apstaklos nodarbojas ar atsevišku parfimerijas un kosmetikas veidu ražošanu. Tomer, vesturiska nozime var aplukot tikai dažas nozimigakas firmas: Brigera ziepju un parfimerijas fabriku, A.Rimeika kimisko fabriku (zobu pastas, kosmetiskie lidzekli, eglišu sveces), A.Tomberga fabriku (smaržas, odekoloni, puderis) un Kikerta rupnicu (tubas, smidzinataji korki). 1940. gada minetas fabrikas tiek nacionalizetas un parveidotas par: ziepju un parfimerijas fabriku “Sarkana Ausma” (bijusi Brigera fabrika), kimiska, svecu un tubinu fabriku “Metra” (bijusi A.Rimeika fabrika), parfimerijas fabriku “Flora” (bijusi A.Tomberga fabrika) un tubinu un kosmetikas fabriku “Rota” (bijusi Kikerta rupnica).

1947. - 1951. gadu laika tika veikta parfimerijas un kosmetikas rupniecibas nozares uznemumu reorganizacija un turpmaka paplašinašana, apvienojot tos, un ta rezultata fabrikas “Flora” un “Rota” tika likvidetas un izveidoti divi lielaki uznemumi: “Sarkana Ausma” un “Metra”.

1951. gada junija fabrika “Metra” tiek parveidota par Rigas kosmetikas fabriku “Dzintars”.

[ENG]
The history of the joint stock company „Dzintars” begins in the middle of the 19th century. A.Briger’s soap and perfumery factory was founded in Riga in 1849, producing soap, candles, and making perfume and Eau de Cologne from ready made compositions from France.

In the second half of the 19th century and at the beginning of the 20th century small companies sprung up in various Latvian towns, producing several sorts of perfumery and cosmetics in the laboratory conditions. But historically we can speak only of several more or less important factories: A.Rimeik’s chemical factory (toothpaste, cosmetic products, Christmas tree candles), pharmaceutist’s A.Tomberg’s firms (perfume, Eau de Cologne, powder) and V.Kikert’s firms (tubes, pulverizers for corks). These companies existed this way untill 1940, when they were nationalized and transformed to soap and perfumery factory „Sarcana Ausma” (formerly A.Briger’s factory), chemical, candle and tube factory „Metra” (formerly A.Rimeik’s factory), perfumery factory „Flora” (formerly A.Tomberg’s factory) and tube-cosmetics factory „Rota” (formerly V.Kikert’s factory). From 1947 to 1951 perfumery and cosmetics manufacturing companies were reorganized and as a result „Flora” and „Rota” factories were liquidated in favour of larger companies - „Sarcana Ausma” and „Metra”. In 1951, June, company „Metra” was renamed as Riga’s cosmetics factory „Dzintars”.
