A privately owned company formed in 1985, Augustus Oils Ltd has expanded steadily, opening into its first essential oil and fragrance chemical factory in 1986. The company moved to Bordon, Hampshire in 1994. Here facilities included substantial factory and storage areas, blending and processing plant together with extensive laboratories for research and development and quality assurance/control functions.
In October 2009 Augustus moved to its present, purpose built 3700sq/m unit in Alton, Hampshire, which has enabled the company to expand on all the above and allow production scale manufacture of naturals and Augustus speciality products.
Early 2017 saw the company granted full ISO9001 and GMP status.
