UNITED CAPS at Interpack 2017: New closure solutions for food and drink

UNITED CAPS will debut new techniques for bi- injection moulding and in-mould labelling for caps and closures

Düsseldorf/Wiltz, Luxembourg, 24 April 2017 – UNITED CAPS, an international manufacturer of caps and closures, is making a significant contribution to sales-promoting packaging with its latest developments. The company will present its latest solutions for bi-injection moulding and in-mould labelling at Interpack 2017 in Düsseldorf, the world's largest packaging trade fair, from 04 to 10 May in Hall 10, Stand D67. Also available will be information on the company’s imminent international expansion plans.

Innovative caps and closures for the food and drink industry are the core business of the Luxembourg-based family company UNITED CAPS. There is a reason why the company's custom-designed caps and closure solutions have been one of the most sought-after solutions in the packaging industry for years. Its latest sales figures reflect the growing interest in the marketplace in UNITED CAPS’ unique and highly functional solutions for caps and closures: Following its strategic reorientation in 2015, the company significantly expanded its portfolio of standard products under the UNITED CAPS brand and acquired a number of important major customers to boost its historically strong business in providing individual customer solutions. In 2016, the company increased its net sales by more than seven percent to EUR 131 million.  

"In 2017 and specifically for Interpack, we want to write a whole new chapter in our success story. To this end, we are not only continually improving our product lines, but we are constantly reviewing and optimising production processes for highly efficient, innovative and sustainable production," reflects Benoît Henckes, CEO of UNITED CAPS.

New: Bi-Injection and In-Mould-Labelling
At its Interpack stand, UNITED CAPS will be exhibiting new in-mould labelling solutions for labelling and decorative plastic closures. As a second new innovation being debuted at the trade fair, the company will be presenting prototypes manufactured with an improved bi-injection process. With both methods, UNITED CAPS helps brands achieve the powerful shelf impact they desire.

Also at Interpack, UNITED CAPS will be presenting its new DOUBLEFLOW precision pouring solution for use with edible oils and vinegars. This innovative two-part closure, with a weight of just three grams, is turning heads in the industry. In another innovation that will be on display at Interpack, UNITED CAPS successfully developed a customer-specific solution for the French bottling firm Wattwiller: A cap in the shape of a flower that makes it easier for older people to open drink bottles while also adding to the shelf appeal of the products.

New production site in Asia
In addition to the product presentations at Interpack, UNITED CAPS will also be announcing a planned investment in new production capacities in Malaysia. "We are excited to be able to bring this information to our Southeast Asian customers. This investment is due to the high demand for high-quality caps and closures we are seeing in that region and aligns with our ‘Close to You’ strategy ", says Benoît Henckes.

Note for press representatives:
Detailed information on the new products will follow soon in separate press releases.
