Named after Alfred Frederic Alders, the inventor of the trigger sprayer, Afa has marked the 40th anniversary of its trigger sprayers business with the opening of a new Innovation Center in Helmond, The Netherlands. The center is integrated with Afa’s local production site, reportedly enabling visitors to experience the entire process of product development—from research to a concept; from a product design to a prototype; and from a final product to mass production.

“Enhancing our customers’ brands through our proprietary dispensing packages continues to be the driving force behind our growth,” said Ariel Gratch, CEO. “It is the combination of reliability, quality and innovation that makes Afa a trusted partner for many multinational consumer product companies in food, beverage, home care, and personal care.”
