Piscataway, NJ and Houston, TX: July 28, 2015 – Agilex Fragrances has acquired the assets of Texas-based Airabella. This strategic combination will enhance Agilex’s role as the leading middle market fragrance company in the United States.

President & owner Bryant Gauthier added, “Everyone at Airabella appreciates the trust you have placed with us in the past and believes that Agilex’s unique combination of large company resources and small company values makes them the perfect partner. Agilex offers the highest quality fragrances, world-class customer service, comprehensive regulatory support, and superior manufacturing capabilities. There will be a seamless transition and no change in our customers’ product support level. We are also very excited that our clients have now immediate access to the additional expertise and resources of Agilex.”
