Aurorium, formerly Vertellus and owned by Pritzker Private Capital, has purchased Centauri Technologies, a technology-driven manufacturing company based in Pasadena, Texas.

Centauri serves a customer base in personal care, coatings and transportation markets from its production facility in Pasadena. Centauri’s experience in hydroformylation and hydrogenation processes looks to complement Aurorium’s strategy and drive its position as a provider of ingredients and materials.

“Centauri is an exciting addition to Aurorium as we continue to expand our presence in specialty ingredients and materials,” comments 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.”

William Blair & Co. advised Centauri on the transaction.
