Firmenich International SA has announced the completion of its acquisition of Les Dérivés Résiniques et Terpéniques (DRT), a world leader in the development and supply of renewable and naturally-derived ingredients.
Founded in 1932 and headquartered in Dax, France, DRT developed a unique, backward integrated business model over many decades, including access to sustainable raw materials, extraction and distillation capabilities and innovation processes.
Firmenich announced that it had entered into exclusivity with Ardian, Tikehau Capital and family shareholders to acquire the company on March 6, 2020. Consultation with the relevant employee representatives and the required customary approvals by the antitrust authorities have been obtained since then, and the acquisition has now closed.
The acquisition will further strengthen Firmenich’s perfumery & ingredients business, enabling the company to offer its customers an expanded selection of renewable and sustainable ingredients.
DRT will also bring new capabilities in health & nutrition, cosmetics, as well as a number of new markets, including adhesives, coatings and agriculture. The acquisition reinforces Firmenich’s presence in France, its second largest market.
