Company Snapshot

Puig is an international company operating in fashion and fragrance sectors. The company was founded in 1914 by Antonio Puig Castelló in Barcelona, Spain. Today the company is still managed by the Puig family.

Puig markets its products in 130 countries and is directly present in 21 of them, employing 4,136 people worldwide. Its turnover in 2012 reached 1488 million euros in net revenues and 173 million euros in net income.

Both in the fashion and fragrances sector, Puig operates under the Carolina Herrera, Nina Ricci, and Paco Rabanne brands. In perfumes it also operates under the license of the brands Comme des Garçons, Prada, and Valentino, amongst others.

The latest brands to be incorporated into the Puig structure are the ones from the Italian designer Valentino (in 2010)[24] and French Jean Paul Gaultier. For this last one, Puig also became the majority shareholder, buying the 45% of the shares of the French group Hermès and 10% of Jean Paul Gaultier himself, who nevertheless retained the artistic direction of the brand that bears his name.
