Driven by our Passion for Solutions®

The values upon which Afton is founded form our Passion for Solutions® philosophy, and are symbolized by three corners of our triangle. The triangle represents the way we do business. It emphasizes that it is the inspiring and enthusiastic people which – when combined with expert and innovative chemistry – deliver effective solutions for our customers, helping them achieve their business goals.

We support our global operations through regional headquarters located in Asia Pacific, EMEAI, Latin America and North America.

As a company, Afton is continually looking to the future.  But the values that we hold closely – and which contribute greatly to our success – are as simple and timeless as they are important.  And while some companies train their people to work this way, we simply hire people who already live their lives by these values.
