How would you explain Aptar’s culture?
Aptar’s culture is based on teamwork, collaboration, respect of people and the promotion of multicultural relationships. These values are the basic pillars of life, and Aptar believes in them. Despite coming to Aptar from another country and background, I feel in harmony with my peers here at Aptar.
What’s the most exciting product or project you’ve worked on?
I have recently been involved with innovative projects such as our “20 keys to manufacturing excellence” project, but perhaps the most exciting initiative I have worked on is our Landfill Free project. Aptar’s facilities in Chieti and Pescara, Italy, along with Torelló, Spain, achieved Landfill Free certification as part of their ongoing sustainability efforts. I found it so important that I transferred what I learned from this project to my home so that my kids could understand the significance of the good health of our planet.
What do you like best about your job?
My job at Aptar provides ample opportunities to grow and broaden my knowledge, allowing me to discover my strengths and put my skills to better use.
What advice would you give to new employees joining the company?
Prior to my experience at Aptar, I never thought there could be so many great people and so much hard work behind such a small, but important, product. This realization gives me full confidence in Aptar’s continued success. New employees should take full advantage of this opportunity to work at a great organization and always be open to make the change you wish to see in the world.
