Tekni-Plex unifies aerosol/pump dispensing manufacturing under Action Technology brand name


Action Technology is a global leader for punched and moulded rubber and plastic gaskets

Tekni-Plex's aerosol and pump dispensing business will now trade as Action Technology.

The company has been operating under the Action Technology brand for the past 40 years and under the American Gasket and Rubber (AGR) brand for more than 70 years.

'We know that AGR has an excellent reputation and a long-standing history. However, because we serve a growing global customer base, we felt that it was important to make it easier to do business with us, regardless of geographic location,' said Jim Carosella, Vice President/General Manager for Action Technology in the US.

'Going forward, Action Technology will represent the ‘go to’ brand worldwide for dispensing component solutions.'

Action Technology is a global leader for punched and moulded rubber and plastic gaskets, as well as wound and precut dip tubing, for aerosol and pump dispensing products.

Its components are used to dispense thousands of food/beverage, pharmaceutical, personal care, industrial and household products worldwide, every day.

The firm has five manufacturing facilities in the US, Belgium, Italy and China, as well as a contract manufacturing location in Argentina.

'Our international production capability means that brand owners — and ultimately consumers — can benefit from consistent dispensing performance regardless of geographic location,' said Carosella.
