A Proud History of Manufacturing Expertise

Athea® History

Established in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1965, Athea® started out manufacturing general toiletry items such as shampoo, bubble bath, hand lotion, and perfumes.  Competition was fierce with larger soap companies so Athea® migrated into the industrial chemical market and has grown steadily ever since.  Over time, as the industrial and institutional market places kept expanding, less and less focus was put on toiletries and this line eventually went away completely.

Athea® and Wet Wipes

More than 20 years ago Athea® was quick to adopt the idea of combining a towel and liquid into one, more convenient, wet wipe solution.  Athea® entered the wet wipe converting industry and immediately realized the opportunities at hand for a company with fabric converting and liquid blending capabilities.  Today Athea® provides years of manufacturing, development, and regulatory expertise and guidance to customers of all sizes to ensure your wet wipe program is as successful as possible.

Athea® Has an Established History of Manufacturing Excellence That You Can Count On

For over 50 years, Athea® has continued to grow and adapt to an ever changing distributor customer base.
