The Airnov story started with the foundation of Airsec in 1952.
In 2019, Arsenal Capital Partners acquired what had flourished into Clariant Healthcare Packaging, and re-branded the company Airnov. The name harkens back to Airsec’s founding, reflecting more than 65 years of delivering industry-leading controlled atmosphere, active packaging. The Airnov name also reflects a focus on future growth and innovation.
Today, Airnov strives to produce the highest-quality active packaging to address our customers’ evolving needs.
As the company has expanded, one thing hasn’t changed: Our commitment to people. The consumer of our partners’ products, our relationships with those partners, the innovation of our materials science researchers, and the commitment to excellence and safety of our manufacturing employees, will always be central to Airnov.
Airnov Healthcare Packaging’s mission is about people.
Our company’s mission is straightforward: to make life better for healthcare patients by creating active packaging that better preserve and protect medicines.
