The packaging manufacturer is kickstarting a major project to bring together five production sites in a new 25,000 m2 unit, which is scheduled to be operational in spring 2023.
In concrete terms, Aptar will invest 42 million euros in bringing together these five workshops into a single site, in Oyonnax. The operation aims to improve production processes, optimize industrial and operational performance.
Industrial and environmental excellence
“Thanks to state-of-the-art technologies, unique technical expertise and the professionalism of its employees, Aptar Beauty + Home will be able to meet the expectations of its customers and deliver a wide range of increasingly innovative and technically sophisticated products,” says the group in a statement.
For the new site, Aptar has chosen to comply with the highest environmental standards, in order to improve the carbon impact of the entire sector. According to the company, the site will save 45% in energy and reduce CO2 emissions by 58% through heat recovery and the end of inter-site transport .
“This strategic project will enable us to minimize our environmental and carbon footprint, and to become more competitive and responsive to our customers. In particular, we have invested in recycling the heat circuits of our internal processes for direct consumption in our building, setting up an automated standby system to improve our energy performance and new means of production that consume less energy,” explains Jean-Charles de Ligne, Operations Director, Aptar Oyonnax.
