About Aptar

Adapting to Make Your Life Better

We may be known for our molding technologies, but it’s our ability to mold and maintain long-term relationships with the world’s leading brands that makes us special.

This legacy underlies a distinctive corporate culture strengthened by strong leadership, unique team-members and dedicated share-holders that all believe in Aptar’s purpose: To re-imagine consumer packaging and drug delivery solutions to improve everyday lives, everywhere.

What started out as three entrepreneurs from the U.S., Germany and France has evolved into a company that spans the globe.

This same entrepreneurial spirit can be found everyday through our commitment to sustainability and innovation. Watch our video below to learn more.
