Univar continues repositioning its businesses with the opening of a new laboratory in France

After having achieved a full reorganisation into a more market-oriented structure, Univar has announced the opening of its new Personal Care Technical Excellence Center in Versailles, France. The ingredients supplier aims at strengthening its position as a source of innovation for prestige cosmetics makers.

Located in Versailles, in the western part of Paris greater urban area, on the campus of ISIPCA (Institut Supérieur International du Parfum de la Cosmétique et de l’Aromatique), a leading institution for post-graduate studies in perfume, cosmetics, and food flavour formulation, Univar’s new technical excellence centre is dedicated to servicing the personal care industry - mainly hair care, skin care, sun care, and personal hygiene products producers - across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). Furthermore, according to Univar, the new technical centre will enhance the company’s ability to provide formulation expertise and innovative solutions to its customers.
