About Aceto

Aceto is a leading global ingredients distributor and manufacturer providing specialty molecules and intermediates to the life science and advanced technology end markets.  With business operations in nine countries, Aceto distributes over 1100 compounds used principally by the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries. Aceto’s global operations, including a significant staff on the ground in US, Europe, China and India, are distinctive in the industry and enable its worldwide sourcing and regulatory capabilities.

Founded in 1947, customers leverage Aceto as an ingredients supplier for niche, difficult to source materials, at a price that provides real solutions.  We match customer needs with our broad inventory of qualified suppliers to identify best fit for Quality and performance. 

In 2019, Aceto was acquired by New Mountain Capital, a New York based investment firm that emphasizes business building and growth, rather than debt, as it pursues long-term capital appreciation. The firm currently manages private and public equity with over $20 billion in assets under management. New Mountain seeks out what it believes to be the highest quality growth leaders in carefully selected industry sectors and then works intensively with management to build the value of these companies.

The company has also some major market positions in the segment of amino acids, vitamins including coenzyme Q10, proteins as lactoferrins and a large panel of botanical extracts.

Aceto is working to meet the strong demand of the market for organic, vegan and clean label ingredients. As an example, the company has been active for a while to provide vegan omega-3 from micro-algae.
