• Additional production plant for cosmetic multifunctional ingredients
  • Increased production capacity for high quality products
  • Support of global growth demand

Symrise has made a targeted investment by acquiring a new manufacturing site in Granada, Spain. The company has now started to produce cosmetic product protection ingredients there. This increases the capacity to support global market growth especially on 1,2-alkanediols.
Symrise has invested in upgrading its Granada site to meet the specific production requirements of Symrise’s high quality 1,2-alkanediols. This shows the company’s engagement to respond to the demands of the growing market. The first production trials have successfully met the standards of these Symrise products. With the recent start of the new production line, the plant now produces both cosmetic ingredients and a broad range of fragrance ingredients from renewable raw materials.

Symrise’s 1,2-alkanediol products represent a range of multifunctional ingredients that are increasingly going into personal care products. Symrise is already producing these ingredients at its manufacturing plants in Holzminden, Germany, and in Monterrey, Mexico. The Granada production site will allow Symrise to expand its production capacity. This will help meeting the market’s increasing demand for safe, effective, and high-quality cosmetic ingredients like 1,2-alkanediols. Also, it will help to keep up with its local and global customers’ needs.

The additional production at the Granada manufacturing site will provide Symrise’s customers significant growth opportunities in Europe and around the world. It will ensure that customers receive continuous access to high quality products from Symrise. “This expansion shows that Symrise is committed to its customers, to growth and investment. It also reinforces our position as a forward-looking and reliable supplier and leader in the field of product protection ingredients.”, says Dr. Joern Andreas, President Cosmetic Ingredients at Symrise.

The Granada production plant became part of Symrise by an acquisition in April 2021. “The product portfolio of the site complements Symrise’s existing portfolio. In addition, investments have started to set up new production lines for Symrise’s Hydrolite® cosmetic Multifunctional ingredients.”, explains Dr. Peter Esser, Vice President Global Chemical Production.
