The company has over 30 years of experience in producing plastic bottles and closures for international customers in the pharmaceutical, home care, beauty care, food and beverage industries.
Today, around 400 people work at ALPLA TABA. The partnership brings together experience as well as the expansion of market presence in Africa and the Middle East in pharmaceutical packaging.
