In 1947 Dauper (Auxiliary Perfume Distilleries) was founded as a small handcraft firm, dedicated to the distillation and distribution of essential oils as well as the elaboration of fragrances.
Dauper went on to gather prestige in a large part of Spain, with the elaboration of its own perfumes and work in collaboration with other French firms (Grasse). This helped Dauper increase its knowledge in traditional and handcraft perfumes, in some cases bordering on alchemy.
In 1988 after a capital increase, Dauper was constituted as Corporation and then became the property of the Ferrao and Alonso families. The company underwent a profound modernization process and the perfumer, Mr Jesus Fco. Ferrao went on to become our Managing Director.
In 1991 an agreement with Quest International was signed by which Dauper S.A took charge of a part of the clientele and the “Know-How” of this multinational in Spain.
In 1999 the new installations were inaugurated, in the Gualba de Baix location, (Barcelona). A location which is equipped with excellent communications and services destined for the chemical industry.
2004 Dauper invests in latest research & development technology equipments taking a big step in the efficiency and quality of perfumer’s work.
In 2005 Mr Jesús Ferrao Jr is named Marketing Manager and he forms the export department for starting the international expansion project.
2012 Dauper enlarges its facilities doubling capacity with the adquisition of the facilities next to its Barcelona factory located at st. Torrent de Terrades nº 11 – Gualba – Barcelona.
From that time on, efforts to remain within the best firms in the sector and have the latest technology and knowledge, have increased each year, without forgetting the tradition that precedes us and with the uttermost conviction that our trade is still an art.
