TriMas president and CEO Thomas Amato said: “We are excited to announce the addition of Aarts Packaging to the TriMas Packaging family of businesses.
“This acquisition will broaden TriMas Packaging’s presence in beauty applications, adding a variety of cosmetic dispenser closures and beauty packaging design solutions.

“We expect Aarts Packaging’s customers to benefit from TriMas Packaging’s broad product offering, expanded design resources, global manufacturing footprint and continued investment in Aarts Packaging’s production capabilities.”
Following the acquisition, Aarts Packaging will be integrated into TriMas Packaging’s group business portfolio, which includes Rieke, Affaba & Ferrari, Rapak, Taplast, Intertech and Omega Plastics.
