CPL Aromas has launched CPL Middle East in Dubai, which is part of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The new location allows the company to reportedly give customers a close local support and enhanced access to the CPL global NPD resources.
The new location is in the Jebel Ali 'free zone', a location the company finds more convenient for the GCC nations of Bahrain , Kuwait, Oman and Saudi Arabia. Iran, Iraq, NE Africa, Pakistan and India will also be serviced form the new location. The new location will host a full-service creative laboratory and local stock-holding. Leading the new location will be Chris Pickthall, MD. The fragrance division of Gulf Flavours & Fragrances was acquired during the establishment of the new location.
The new facility in Dubai follows the previous establishment of CPL Aromas Germany in 2005. CPL Aromas is based in the United Kingdom.
