One hundred years of history to celebrate!

In 1919, the Augros company was reduced to a small workshop manufacturing steel buckles for the fashion industry located rue Oberkampf. From the 1960s under the impetus of the founder's son, Jacques Augros, it is the turn towards the plastics industry and the company becomes one of the pioneers of the revolution of glass stoppers for perfume bottles, with the famous technique known as “Plast-Emeri” developed with the glassmaker Pochet du Courval, a technique which will be followed by the “Opercule” system used by the biggest brands.
The first steps in plastics processing were a success with the development and manufacture of the first line for men by Paco Rabanne equipped with the operculum system, followed by Azzaro pour Homme, Armani, Tiffany etc.

Didier Bourgine, who has headed the company since 2001, has built the company's development on three industrial pillars: specialization in bespoke luxury, flexible process automation and total quality.
Today the Alençon site is considered to be one of the most automated entities in the sector, with an internal scrap rate of less than 1.5%. This year, the commemoration of the company's centenary will take shape with a series of celebrations and events.

Participation in the Places d'Or with the presentation of a century-old object - an innovative and collector's item in progress - will round off this rich year. Designed by a great designer in the profession, the object will reflect the perpetual creativity of the profession, all the know-how of the house and will symbolize this date so important for Augros Cosmetic Packaging.
