Iberchem Expands R&D Facilities at Head Office
Iberchem today started construction on the expansion of its R&D facilities at its head office in southern Spain. Featuring state-of-the-art installations, the new center will cover a total of 3,000 square meters spread across three levels. It has been specifically designed to broaden and enhance the company’s R&D operations and accommodate nearly 100 specialists, including perfumers, lab technicians, evaluators and application specialists. The center is expected to be completed by fall 2018.
The announcement comes shortly after the company’s recent hiring of a New Technologies Director, reflecting its promise to offer innovative fragrance solutions to its customers, ahead of the market’s requirements.
“This investment was key to maintaining the company’s enviable growth over the past decade, and represents a pillar in fulfilling the objectives of our ongoing strategic plan,” says Ramón Fernández, CEO of Iberchem. “It demonstrates our commitment to anticipating the needs of our clients, providing them with the best service possible.”
“Its design is tailored to maximizing the collaboration work between the different R&D divisions of the company, reinforcing our current speed-to-market offer to our customers. From the perfumer’s offices to the testing cabins, the function of each room has been carefully considered in order to improve the flow of projects as well as the comfort of our personnel,” added Cristina Castellanos, Technical Director of Iberchem. “It will help our employees to work more efficiently, more rapidly and allow our clients to benefit from even more personalized assistance.”
