Specialty chemicals maker Camlin Fine Sciences Ltd has acquired a 51% stake in Chinese chemical firm Ningbo Wanglong Flavors and Fragrances Company Ltd for $6.28 million (around Rs 40.5 crore) in cash.

Camlin bought the stake along with its Italian unit CFS Europe SpA, it said in a stock exchange filing on Wednesday.

Camlin was founded in 1931. The company makes antioxidants, aroma ingredients and performance chemicals. It has a plant in Ravenna (Italy) to produce catechol, which is used to make vanillin and ethyl vanillin.

In 2016, Camlin acquired a 65% stake in Mexico’s Dresen Quimica SA de CV, along with its group companies, for $7.8 million (Rs 53 crore) in cash.

In 2016-17, Camlin reported a net loss of Rs 4.28 crore on total income of Rs 548.73 crore.
