Emsar becomes Aptar Food + Beverage

The Aptar Group recently announced that in 2010 it would undertake a strategic realignment of its business lines, with a focus on three main market segments:

Aptar Beauty + Home

Aptar Food + Beverage

Aptar Pharma.

Newly formed Aptar Food + Beverage, which brings together Airlessystems, Emsar, Indigo by Valois, Pfeiffer, Seaquist Closures, Seaquist Perfect Dispensing and Valois, will continue to focus on developing innovative dispensing systems, offering customers improved service levels and product quality.

Peter Pfeiffer, president and CEO of the Aptar Group, said: “We have always been committed to better serving our customers by continuously striving to keep abreast of their expectations, and by staying a step ahead of market developments. By realigning our businesses in a way that’s completely market-focused, we will make it even easier for customers to do business with us, and will be able to offer our full product range in each of our three segments. This new milestone will help secure our long-term growth and reinforce our position as a global leader in our industry.”

The new Food + Beverage business line, named ‘Aptar Food + Beverage’, will focus on these markets as from 2010, and be fully operational by early 2011.

Within the new group, production and sales will be organised on a regional basis with the backing of global development teams. This will help increase responsiveness and boost innovation by adopting a market-focused approach.
