J. & E. Sozio


imageBackground

Alpine Aromatics International, Inc. (“Alpine”) is a leading supplier of air and personal care fragrances in the U.S. Alpine’s second generation owners grew the company to a point where it required additional capital and an international production network for the next major step in its corporate development.
J. & E. Sozio Inc. (“Sozio”) - the U.S. subsidiary of J. & E. Sozio Descollonges S.A. - a very distinguished international fragrance house founded in 1757 in Grasse, France - was seeking to grow its footprint in the U.S. and could, at the same time, offer Alpine a global presence and international perfumery resources.


Outcome

Conexus was able to negotiate a merger of both companies with Sozio acquiring Alpine and moving its business into Alpine’s facility, thereby creating substantial synergies and manufacturing efficiencies. Because of the proximity of both companies in the U.S., most employment could be preserved. The combined company, Sozio-Alpine, Inc., will be able to offer Alpine’s customers additional resources, including automated production and direct access to a global presence.
