ARTAZN™ has roots that reach more than a century into America’s past. In 1880, five brothers founded what was called Ball Brothers Glass Manufacturing Company. Their company quickly became the leading manufacturer of glass home canning jars in the United States. The operation included a zinc mill, which produced the lids for the famous Ball Mason Jars.
In 1992, Ball Corporation spun off seven of its divisions into a new company called Alltrista Corporation, which was later renamed Jarden Corporation. In April of 2016, Newell Rubbermaid purchased Jarden Corporation, renaming the joined companies Newell Brands. In 2019 Newell Brands divested Jarden Zinc Products, which became ARTAZN™.
