After a recent establishment in Vietnam, the French company specialising in the production of fragrance compositions (more than 80% of sales), food flavourings and natural ingredients has announced the opening of a new development centre in Johannesburg, South Africa.
A long-term growth opportunity
Argeville’s internationalization, which began about ten years ago, thus continues with a very first opening of in the African continent.
“This new opening is part of the plan to strengthen our international development and consolidate our presence in strategic commercial areas,” said Argeville in a statement.
The aim is also to get closer to its regional customers, with whom it has worked for over twenty years on a cross-category product offer (fragrances, personal-care, air-care).
This new center is jointly managed by Richard Kourennoy, Sales Africa Manager, and Ignacio Garcia, Area Sales Manager, both specialists in the area, and is expected to grow rapidly with the arrival of new collaborators.
The offices are located in Rosebank, the business and commercial district of Johannesburg. “A privileged location at the crossroads of communication,” the company emphasized.
“The opening of our South African office is the first step toward other projects that should come to fruition in 2023,” said Argeville President, Xavier Ardizio, to Premium Beauty News earlier this year.
