The combination will expand ANR’s product portfolio in the high-end fragrance category and enable the platform to serve a broader range of personal care and beauty applications across a wide spectrum of unit sizes.

“ANR is continuing our expansion in the personal care and beauty market, and we continue to actively invest in the infrastructure, technology and human expertise needed to become the manufacturer of choice in this growing industry. I am excited about this opportunity to redefine the contract manufacturing industry and lead ANR in its next phase of success. With CFI, we have expanded our ability to serve customers worldwide and offer unmatched product innovation, formulation expertise, and manufacturing and logistics services,” Christine Staples, CEO of ANR, said.
