Aurorium – formerly Vertellus – announced the acquisition of CENTAURI Technologies. The addition of CENTAURI’s complementary specialty material product portfolio and advanced manufacturing capabilities expands Aurorium’s offering and extends its reach in high-growth end markets.

In addition to the acquisition, the company announced that it has changed its official name from Vertellus to Aurorium. The company says the rebrand better represents the company’s growth and evolution as a global materials innovation partner with a diversified portfolio of specialty ingredients and performance-enhancing materials.

CENTAURI is a technology driven manufacturer of specialty materials, serving a global customer base in the personal care, coatings, and transportation markets from its production facility in Pasadena, Texas. The company says CENTAURI’s specific expertise in hydroformylation and hydrogenation processes, including high pressure, high melt, and other complex capabilities, is complementary to Aurorium’s strategy and strengthens its position as a provider of specialty ingredients and performance-enhancing materials.

“CENTAURI is an exciting addition to Aurorium as we continue to expand our presence in specialty ingredients and materials,” said John Van Hulle, Aurorium CEO. “CENTAURI adds a complementary portfolio of high-quality solutions, differentiated manufacturing capabilities, and an impressive track record of innovation and growth. With CENTAURI’s customer-focused approach and exceptional engineering capabilities joining our platform, Aurorium is well-positioned to capitalize on growth across our end markets.”

“Our new name and identity, Aurorium, better represents the strength of our platform and growth opportunity for our business,” said Faye Freeman, president of Aurorium. “As Aurorium, we are well-positioned to expand our products and markets, and more effectively serve our customers with a wide range of solutions that are essential to their businesses. Aurorium is committed to delivering a best-in-class customer experience, innovative solutions, and dynamic partnerships to help our customers thrive in an increasingly competitive global marketplace.”
