Formerly known as Jarden Zinc, ARTAZN is one of the world's oldest and largest producers of solid zinc strip and zinc products and the largest in all of North America. We create solutions for the automotive, architectural, building, cathodic protection, and specialty industries globally. And for the past 130+ years, our legacy of zinc manufacturing and innovation has challenged us to be the best in all areas: as leaders, as craftspeople, and as partners.
ARTAZN is headquartered in Greeneville, Tennessee, with a manufacturing space of 350,000 square feet (32,616 meters). It is certified to ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, and IATF 16949:2016 to ensure the highest quality and environmental standards for its products and services.
At ARTAZN, we foster an entrepreneurial culture where a passion for work and innovation is the norm. And because we believe personal integrity will always influence professional integrity, we search for those who share our core beliefs. We also reward individual contribution and creativity, while still recognizing that every team can achieve more together, working towards a common goal
Even in 1880, the year our roots took hold, manufacturing excellence and innovation were on the minds of our founders. Today, almost a century and a half later, our teams are motivated by the same need for growth. We process roughly 10 million pounds of zinc every month. And as one of the leading coin blank manufacturers, we're responsible for 300 billion coins circulating in more than 20 countries. Travel back in time to imagine how far we have yet to go.
Safety, Quality, and Environmental stewardship are integral to ARTAZN's history, its culture, and its future. Customer expectations drive ever-improving product quality and variety upon a foundation of ARTAZN's business management system that fosters innovation.
We believe Safety performance, a Commitment to Quality, and Environmental Compliance are wellsprings of value, to be pursued, improved, and celebrated.
We value the communities in which we operate and the resources they provide. Our integrated systems will ensure that pollution prevention and waste minimization is a priority.
We listen to our customers, their needs, and consistently deliver valuable products.
Our Business Management System, atop ISO 14001 and IATF 16949, requires developing objectives and targets that ensure continuous innovation and process improvements.
We share a vision that unites us, and we lead our industry in expanding the positive impact of Zinc in society.
We participate in established market channels where it is most efficient, and will confidently pioneer new markets should innovation require it and society appreciate it.
For 50 years now, ARTAZN has placed the needs of its Greeneville, TN, community at the heart of its business. From employing our neighbors to supporting local nonprofits, we believe better business empowers a better world, starting just outside our doors.
Inspired by zinc itself—an element essential to all living things and capable of being endlessly recycled—we work together to apply these same principles to our production processes. We're focused on recycling our own materials, maintaining our treatment system for a clean environment, and investing in employee development.
