The global packaging company has inaugurated its first lacquering and metallization line in Latin America at its new plant in Camaçari, Bahia. The opening of the new line comes just few months after the launch of production on the recently opened production site.

“Until then, theAptar group’s only lacquering and metallization line was located in Groissiat, France,” said Ruy Souza, Industrial Director of the Camaçari facility. "Given the current demand and the forecast growth of the Latin American market for the coming years, we believe this new line will contribute to adapting our production capacity and meeting our customers’ expectations. It will make our processes in this field more agile and more competitive.
