IMCD acquires O&3, a Leading Speciality Natural Ingredients Supplier


As of today, IMCD UK has officially acquired 90% of the shares in O&3 Limited, an industry leading supplier of speciality natural ingredients to the global beauty and personal care markets.

Since its inception in 2018, O&3 has leveraged decades of family experience in the industry to skyrocket them to success. O&3’s impressive growth has been achieved through the production, marketing and formulation of an extensive range of conventional and organic natural ingredients. Furthermore, their global supply chain boasts a diverse customer base ranging from indie brands, through to major global brands, manufacturers and retailers.

We’re pleased to say we will be welcoming 69 dedicated employees from across O&3’s offices and facilities in Ripon (UK), Warka (Poland) and New York (USA), into the IMCD family. 

They are an extremely talented team and together they have generated a remarkable revenue of approximately EUR 37 million in the last financial year ending on March 31, 2023.

Paul Hanbury, Managing Director of IMCD UK, is extremely excited about the acquisition and said, 

"The activities of IMCD and O&3 are highly complementary and will strengthen both companies. We share a culture of being reliable partners to both suppliers and customers by offering technical expertise and formulation support and solutions for supply chain challenges."
