SHARING OUR EXPERTISE

In the plastic caps & closures business for more than 60 years, UNITED CAPS has substantial expertise in developing reliable products, optimised for standard and more specific applications. We are continually learning. Sharing ideas and experiences with customers, partners and suppliers ensures that we approach every project from a solid foundation of knowledge. Our business is about creating mutually-advantageous solutions. We consider every new design from all angles; taking into account required performance, end-user experience, manufacturing, transportation and more. A number of solutions have set new norms and enabled customers to significantly differentiate their products. Check out some that we are extremely proud of.

COME AND VISIT US!
We regularly organise customer days where you can visit our facilities and enjoy in-depth discussions about how our solutions can add real value to your business. Guests have the opportunity to learn more about our advanced equipment, efficient processes, additional applications, moulds and more. If you would be interested in taking part in a UNITED CAPS customer day, contact us.

CUSTOM-BUILT DESIGNS
Our vast knowledge of plastic and how to manipulate it has enabled us to design original solutions to meet customers’ exact requirements for existing and emerging products. As you will see by clicking on the links below, we also fully understand how to combine the raw material with other advantageous applications, such as in-mould labelling (IML), silkscreen printing, tampo-printing, offset, multi-component assembly, ultrasonic welding, folding/slitting Tamper evident bands, lining (food and non-food), bi-injection, thin-gauge parts. UNITED CAPS experts are always available to offer advice and support.
