Manufacturing Fragrances and Partnerships

Manufacturing Operations Designed to Deliver Quality and Reliability

Even With Successful Growth, We Have Never Forgotten the Importance of Reliability

During our first ten years, perfumes were produced in batches of all sizes in an industrial hangar in Terrassa, province of Catalonia, Spain.  In true entrepreneurial fashion, our humble beginnings were made of long days, tough manual labor and plenty of youthful enthusiasm. Back then, like today, we treated every customer order with the same dedication and respect for your business. With success came the need to begin manufacturing at an industrial level, and the first automated plant opened in Rubí, in the vicinity of Terrassa in 2000.  Ever since, the men and women who work in our factories around the world abide by a simple principle: “reliable excellence.”  Every day—and night—all year, their single objective is to manufacture and deliver the highest quality fragrances along with the best customer service, in all circumstances, all the time.

People

The Men and Women We All Count On

"Essential workers” have never been more important than in these uncertain times.  The Eurofragancers on our production sites have once again proven that in all circumstances they are 100% committed to keeping our businesses running as smoothly as can be.

If our factories are so productive, it is also thanks to bottom-up initiatives of Eurofragancers on the plant floor and in our warehouses.  Unprompted, they are compelled to offer their solutions and improve our processes.  This is true on all our sites, and the teamwork mentality extends across borders.  Because our plants all follow a single ERP system and the same standardized procedures, it is possible to transfer learnings and colleagues from one factory to another.Our external manufacturing partners are also indispensable in helping run smooth operations and addressing challenges in local markets.  As a client, you benefit from our proximity, our partnerships and knowing that you will always receive outstanding service everywhere.

Efficiency

An Infrastructure That Delivers High Productivity and Great Quality

While we have the adaptability and agility of a mid-size fragrance house, our production capabilities rival some of the largest manufacturers.  Mostly through organic growth, significant capital expenditures and key strategic alliances, Eurofragance perfumes are now produced in six countries.

Our plants in Spain, Singapore and Mexico have an annual production capacity of 10,000 tons of fragrance thanks to our efficient workforce and 75  percent automated production lines, running the latest generation of robotic systems.  In Singapore and Barcelona, our new compounding robots are now operative, while we have just doubled  of factory surface in Mexico. We have always looked to benchmark our robotics to the best in class, and objectively, we’re right on the mark in all our plants with the exact same equipment, automation setup and level of service.  In China, India and the United States our production partners allow us to compete head-to-head with local players, while also bringing us new business opportunities and clients.

Supply Chain and Logistics

Wherever You Might Be, You Can Benefit From Our Expertise

Thanks to our strategic presence in hub locations such as Barcelona, Mexico, Singapore and Dubai, coupled with manufacturing partners in China, India and the United States, we are either where you are, or never too far away.  You are the first to benefit from our proximity and speed of reactivity.

We can deliver the fragrance of your selection anywhere in the world in two weeks—including production time!  Colleagues in our factories and warehouses know this drill by heart.  Eurofragance can also count on the help of logistics partners in certain local markets.  Clearly, our logistics mindset is global, and this applies just as much to our supply chain. In order to create outstanding perfumes, we must constantly source high-end, premium raw materials from around the globe.  Over the years, Eurofragance has strengthened its global network of trustworthy fragrance ingredients suppliers, thanks to whom we could continue procuring raw materials and delivering on time during the pandemic.

Compliance

We Are Compliant Because We Care About Eurofragancers, You and the Planet

Because the fragrance industry belongs to the chemistry sector, our Compliance Department has a laser focus on the potential environmental and safety issues inherent in manufacturing perfumes.  When it comes to the wellbeing of people and planet, we are uncompromising.

Not only do we care for all the living constituents of our environment, but we also go beyond the regulations and legislation in place today, in all markets where we are present.  Above and beyond safety, compliance is also about quality control and quality assurance.  At Eurofragance we can report a service level of 95 percent regarding product organoleptics. Concerning quality assurance, we are proud to be ISO compliant on most of our sites around the world.  Additionally, we have proactively undertaken environmental initiatives such as producing one third of our own energy used globally by all our factories (the remaining energy is entirely green), while our factory in Barcelona has its own water treatment plant.

Investing in Operations and Engaging Coworkers Will Ensure Future Growth

We are on a never-ending mission to implement new systems and best practices on all our existing sites.  Our operations are in constant evolution to assure you, our customers, the best quality fragrances and irreproachable service.

Eurofragance has always been one step ahead when it comes to improving the efficiency of our plants, for example via the acquisition of the latest automation systems and robotics. 

This is a philosophy we will pursue as we continue to grow, but we will always keep the communication channels wide open with the men and women who work in our factories and warehouses, while ensuring their everyday safety and wellbeing.

None of us will ever forget the 2020 - 2021 pandemic and the hardship we collectively experienced. Of all the images that marked this period, I will long remember the resolve, resilience and solution-oriented creativity demonstrated by the men and women who kept working in our factories and warehouses. If production never stopped and we were able to provide you with excellent fragrances and service, it is thanks to their dedication. I can only express my deep gratitude and admiration to each one of them.
