A history of innovation

Afa was established as a custom plastic molder in 1965. In the early 1970s, Afa began producing trigger sprayers under license from its American inventor,
and until 1998 continued to serve both as a custom molder and as a producer of its own products.
Under new ownership Afa exited the custom-molding segment and invested heavily in liquid-dispensing technologies in order
to pursue its “brand enhancement through innovative dispensing” strategy.
With this strategy Afa has emerged as the leading developer, manufacturer and supplier of innovative dispensing systems,
which bring greater value to the consumer. The key milestones in Afa’s history include:
