Chemical Company - About Us | Vigon International, Inc., 12 Nov 2014 [cached]
In 1998 Vigon International was purchased by Steve Somers, formerly of Givaudan. At the time of purchase Vigon employed 10 individuals. Under the leadership of Somers, Vigon International now employs more than 65 in a facility totaling over 105,000 square feet on seventeen acres of property.
Steve Somers - Owner and President
Steve Somers, owner and president of Vigon International began his career in the flavor and fragrance industry at Felton International in 1982. Steve worked in the lab at Felton as a Quality Control Chemist while studying to obtain his Master of Science in Analytical Chemistry from St. John's University. Steve maintained his focus on the technical side of the business moving to Fritzsche Dodge & Olcott as a Quality Control Chemist in 1984. Over the next thirteen years and through the company's mergers with Givaudan Roure, Steve moved rapidly up through the organization holding various production and sales positions. Based on Steve's unique combination of technical/production expertise and sales/marketing knowledge, he was appointed Business Director of Givaudan's Fragrance Ingredient Division in 1993. After successfully overseeing the Fragrance Ingredient business, Steve was promoted in 1997 to Director of Sales for North America.
With such a broad and comprehensive perspective of the flavor and fragrance industry at a senior level, Steve decided to pursue his vision of creating a unique and progressive company, and purchased Vigon International in 1998. Under Steve's leadership, Vigon International is becoming one of the industry's fastest growing companies.

When you call Vigon now and ask for Steve Somers, our receptionist Ann, has to ask "Which One?".
As many of you know, Steve Somers' son Steve has been working with us for over a year now as Director of Materials Management, and having two "Steve's" now is not the only change that has taken place. As Director of Materials Management, Steve's primary focus is on improving the efficiency and effectiveness of our purchasing and planning functions while developing and strengthening our overseas partnerships with a variety of raw material suppliers at source.
In his role for only a little more than a year, Steve has already made a huge impact from a sourcing standpoint allowing us to become even more price competitive than we already were as well as from a offering standpoint by adding new key ingredients to our already broad line. The impact that he has made has been received extremely well both from both our customers as well as from the Yipppeee! Team as it has created a lot of new opportunities for everyone.
Steve came to us after living and working in Hong Kong for Goldman Sachs as a Real Estate Financial Analyst where he analyzed the feasibility of various global real estate investments for Goldman. However Steve was no stranger to Vigon as he has worked at Vigon since he was 16 years old in virtually all areas of the company including Production, the QC Lab, Shipping and Receiving, and Finance and Accounting. Steve studied Corporate Finance and Accounting at Bentley College in Boston where he graduated Summa Cum Laude before joining Goldman Sachs.
When Steve is not at Vigon, he enjoys playing golf, traveling, and spending time in and around his home in Hoboken NJ. When asked what he likes most about Vigon, Steve replied "Everyday provides a different challenge, a new opportunity to learn, a new opportunity to improve, and a new opportunity to have some fun"!
