Givaudan has announced the results of its CHF 70 million investment in Singapore: a perfumery school, creative center and production hub. The company broke ground in Asia earlier this year with the opening of a manufacturing facility in China and a technical center in Japan.
As Givaudan's first perfumery school outside of France, the campus will be using the same curriculum to educate and train future perfumers from Asia.
The location of the creative center and production hub will facilitate increased flexible research and development, while production and delivery are expected to produce up to 10,000 tonnes annually. Fully operational, the creative center employs over 170 people.
Gilles Andrier, CEO, Givaudan said, "The fragrance creative center and production hub in Singapore represents our continued strong commitment to high growth regions. Our new facility also positions us to work in even closer partnership with our customers to offer fragrance solutions that meet the latest consumer trends. We are especially excited to open our first ever Perfumery School campus located outside of France. This marks a very significant milestone in our company's history and reinforces our commitment to Asia, Singapore and our customers in the region."
