The UK-headquartered fragrance house has acquired Global Fragrances Labs (GFL) in Spain and their entire operations in El Prat de Llobregat, Barcelona. This new site will combine with the current CPL Aromas’ Spain to create one division, solidifying CPL’s position in the industry and expanding its capabilities in Spain.
Global Fragrances Labs began in 2010 when Nelly Di Mercurio López started the company from the roots. For the past 13 years GFL has been creating and manufacturing scents for the perfumery, home care, personal care and air freshener sectors with a focus on curating scents that make memories for life in a sustainable manner.
“Global Fragrances Labs are a complimentary business to our own in Spain, we share similar visions for the future of fragrance and our values align. GFL have a strong reputation for quality and customer service, and combined with CPL’s strengths it will offer our domestic customers in Spain a comprehensive experience,” said Nick Pickthall, Chief Operating Officer of CPL Aromas.
As per the terms of the acquisition, CPL Aromas will welcome and retain all 19 existing employees from GFL, as well as the current premises, that will be run under the CPL Aromas Spain division.
“We are so happy with this agreement, and we know that it will be an opportunity, not only for CPL’s growth but for our customers to grow with them,” added Nelly Di Mercurio López of GFL.
