In 2021, Finar was acquired by Aceto thus joining a larger global family of manufacturing and distribution sites. In an effort to create a unified global organization, we are delighted to announce today that we are changing our name to Actylis.

Actylis is the combination of Finar and 10 other industry specialists, creating an integrated global ingredient powerhouse, and is the culmination of an ambitious initiative launched several years ago to address the major unmet need for better and more dependable access to critical raw materials and performance ingredients essential for the manufacture of highly regulated products in the industries we serve.
