Firmenich to Acquire Agilex Fragrances

Patrick Firmenich said the Agilex Fragrance business complements Firmenich’s fragrance activity.

PARIS – Firmenich said that it is acquiring Agilex Fragrances, a North American fragrance maker serving midsize customers.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Firmenich said in a statement that Piscataway, N.J.-based Agilex Fragrances is recognized for its track record in designing creative fragrances, as well as its supply chain with impressive speed to market.

Agilex recently introduced a new manufacturing center with highly automated and flexible processes in Somerset County, N.J.

Patrick Firmenich, chairman of the board of the Swiss fragrance and flavors supplier, said the Agilex Fragrance business complements Firmenich’s fragrance activity.

Once the deal is closed, probably prior to year-end 2017, Agilex Fragrances will operate as a freestanding entity and continue designing scents for midsize customers.
