An overview of MAPA

Customer proximity, high quality requirements, and many years of experience – this is what makes us an internationally successful industrial company. With our brands NUK, BILLY BOY, and Spontex, we make daily life easier for people all over the world. In fact, in many households, it’s hard to imagine life without our products. Zeven in northern Germany has been our home since 1947. It is here that we manufacture and perform quality controls on NUK bottles and pacifiers and BILLY BOY, Fromms, and Blausiegel condoms before preparing them for shipment to our sales partners and end customers. In addition, MAPA also takes care of the sale and distribution of all Spontex products. These include cleaning aids like sponges and disposable gloves as well as special substances for industrial applications. In our Professional segment, we also sell and distribute protective work gloves to industrial clients. All told, we have more than 620 employees working here. And they are proud to be a part of MAPA and contribute to the company’s success.

Customer proximity and satisfying the customers’ needs are at the heart of our activities. To meet the high demands, we invest consciously in the development and manufacture of quality products. This goes hand in hand with strict safety standards and quality requirements on our work and products. Of course, we also attach great importance to the careful use of natural resources.
