Firmenich Group company Agilex Fragrances has announced the acquisition of Fragrance West from the HORN Company.
“The West Coast of the U.S. is a unique ecosystem with thriving start-ups driving technology breakthroughs and natural lifestyle trends,” said Armand de Villoutreys, president perfumery and ingredients for Firmenich. “By expanding our presence on the West Coast, this acquisition advances our vision to shape the future of fragrance with leading innovation.”
Headquartered in Los Angeles, Fragrance West has been providing body, home and air care perfume solutions to the small and mid-sized markets since 2008. Upon the deal closure, Fragrance West will be fully integrated into Agilex France and its manufacturing facility will be maintained to ensure customer service. Agilex will become the only fragrance company in the middle market to operate with manufacturing capabilities on both the East and West Coast.
“We are proud to have developed strong relationships with leading consumer product companies on the West Coast and across the U.S. that have valued our commitment to innovation and service,” said Jeff Martin, president of HORN. “Agilex, with its creativity and focus on serving small to mid-sized customers, will be a great partner for our trusted customers and a great long-term home for our colleagues.”
