Alene Candles expands operations

Alene Candles, a full-service contract and private-label fragrance manufacturers, is expanding its Ohio operations with the addition of more than 50,000 square feet that joins its two existing suites, creating a contiguous 230,000+-square-foot manufacturing facility. This will allow Alene Candles to keep pace with demand for its high-quality candles and other high-end custom fragrance products.

Alene Candles opened its first New Albany facility in 2012 and expanded operations in October 2020 with the opening of a second manufacturing facility, both located within the New Albany Business Park’s Personal Care and Beauty Innovation Campus. The company is headquartered in Milford, New Hampshire. The expansion is expected to be complete later this month, just as Alene Candles begins to ramp up production for its busy season.

“Demand for candles rose to unprecedented levels during the pandemic, with individuals spending more time in their homes,” said Rod Harl, president and CEO, Alene Candles. “This expansion is a strategic investment that will allow us to optimize efficiency of our manufacturing processes, while also solidifying our presence in New Albany.”

The additional space is located between two existing suites that were already occupied by Alene Candles.

Alene Candles currently has approximately 700 employees and temporary team members, and is currently seeking to hire an additional 100 employees for its peak production season, which begins in the summer and runs through the holidays.
