RAMAT HOVAV, ISRAEL: The Makhteshim Agan Group (MAI) announced the expansion of its operations in Israel through the opening of a new production facility based on a unique chemical process for aroma fine chemicals products. The facility, located at the Makhteshim site in Ramat Hovav, Israel will be used for the production of the Aleol product line scheduled to be released later this year. The new operations will strengthen the Aroma segment, where the Group develops, produces and markets fine aroma chemicals to the fragrance industry.

The facility has been designed and built to the most stringent environmental standards as part of the Group’s commitment to environmental protection by using advanced production technologies in these fields. The initial production process was jointly developed by MAI and Ben-Gurion University and was later licensed to Makhteshim Agan by BGN Technologies, the technology transfer company of Ben-Gurion University.

“With this step Makhteshim Agan has proven its commitment to provide efficient and effective solutions for its customers through technological advancements, production excellence and environmental leadership. I believe that Israel’s competitive advantage in our sector is driven by innovation and creativity in R&D resulting in leading products and manufacturing processes. We will continue to strengthen and invest in such capabilities in Israel,” said Erez Vigodman, President and CEO, Makhteshim Agan.
