IFF to close fragrances ingredients manufacturing facility in Augusta, US

NEW YORK, US: International Flavors & Fragrances Inc (IFF), a leading global creator of flavours and fragrances for consumer products, announced its intention to close its Fragrances Ingredients manufacturing facility in Augusta, Georgia, US by July 2014 and to consolidate production into existing IFF Ingredients facilities. The closing of the Augusta plant will improve efficiencies within the Ingredients manufacturing network, thereby supporting the company’s objective to ensure operations are cost-efficient and competitive.

“Providing innovative and cost-effective ingredients for use in our Fragrance Compounds business is our number one priority and is critical to our ability to create winning solutions for our customers. Our Fragrance Ingredients business supplies our Fine Fragrance and Beauty Care and Functional Fragrances categories with differentiated and captive ingredients that provide us with a strategic and competitive advantage, and enable our perfumers to create winning consumer fragrances for our customers’ brands,” said Nicolas Mirzayantz, President, Fragrances Group.

“With a changing competitive environment, we have decided to streamline those parts of our business that support lower value-added, commodity-like ingredients and remain focused on those areas that are more value-enhancing. Based on our ongoing business review, this is one of several actions we are taking to improve the competitiveness of our Fragrance Ingredients business, and to position our overall Fragrances business for long-term profitable growth,” added Mirzayantz.
