CPL Aromas Plant Opening

Congratulations to international fragrance house CPL Aromas on the opening of their new production facility in Dubai.  B&W are very proud to have worked with CPL as technical advisors, supporting them through the tender negotiations and contractor selection process.  This high tech factory is the first of its kind to operate in the region and will serve the MENA region and Indian sub-continent.

Located in the Jebel Ali Free Zone, this 10,000 sq metre fully automated site is the first fragrance manufacturing site to be established by an International Fragrance house in the UAE and as such will ensure local companies enjoy improved levels of customer service without the need to import fragrances from outside the MENA region as is currently the case.

CPL Aromas creates and manufactures fragrance concentrates for a variety of applications including fine fragrances, personal care and household products and is responsible for creating many of the leading fragrances in the Middle East.

CPL Aromas Fricke Machine Production

The new plant will operate to the highest international standards and became operational in February 2015, employing a team of 65 highly trained staff. The factory employs the latest automatic fragrance dosing equipment from Germany and the entire site is fully air conditioned to ensure the quality of the thousands of raw materials are not affected by the high temperatures experienced in Dubai.  The building itself is highly insulated ensuring that the environmental impact of the cooling system is minimised by allowing the cool air to remain within the site.

As the UAE’s first independent multi-disciplinary medical research centre, we hope that it will inspire local youths to study biomedical science, and provide a solid foundation for cutting-edge medical findings that will address the region’s most pressing health challenges. We thank GHD and IBI Nightingale for helping us transform this vision into a reality.”

Al Jalila Foundation, named after Sheikha Al Jalila, daughter of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, aims to promote the UAE as a centre of excellence in the field of medical education and research, and position Dubai at the forefront of medical innovation. The not-for-profit organisation will fund groundbreaking studies to be undertaken at the centre.
