Virospack was founded in 1956 just outside of Barcelona in neighboring Badalona, where it is still based today. In the beginning, Virospack began by creating rubber to be used for pharmaceutical purposes. It was at this time that they also began to produce droppers, which would, later on, become the company’s signature product. Throughout the next couple of decades, Virospack expanded their products past rubber, specializing in packaging only for the cosmetic industry and incorporating in their range new materials like plastic and new products like spatula packs, caps, and vials, among many others. Four years ago, the company started an ambitious expansion plan that is culminating in 2017 with the inauguration of a modern factory committed to sustainability and technological development.
