The theme of the event was Aptar – Global Growth Story which Tanda explained in his opening remarks. “We are a growth story, we have been a growth story, and we have been positioning ourselves to be a growth story for decades to come,” he explained. “We are fortunate that we operate in attractive markets. From both a macro trends and demographic point of view. We win in those markets with solutions that make a difference in consumers’ lives, patients’ lives, in and some cases even help save lives.”
The presentation outlined a number of growth drivers from macro elements such as sustainability, high-growth economies, e-commerce, health and wellness trends, and an aging global population, to micro trends affecting each segment – all of which offer many opportunities. In addition, Tanda reviewed Aptar’s Strategic Priorities and specific areas of focus that form the roadmap toward the company’s long-term objectives. Talent and leadership development, as well as acquisitions and partnerships are among those priorities. Aptar will also look to expand in Asia to capitalize on the growth in population, GDP and specific market sectors; and approach sustainability from several angles to maintain a strong foundation in this area and help customers with innovative solutions.
Tanda closed out the event by saying, “I am incredibly proud of this team. I think that you get not only what we’re doing but how we’re doing it together. We are a growth business, taking advantage of growing markets with our innovative solutions.”
