Innovation in pre-cut lidding
and shrink sleeve packaging
With more than 50 years of experience in heat seal pre-cut lids and as the largest manufacturer in the United Kingdom, we operate to the highest quality and hygiene production standards.
We produce UV flexo print quality, polyester, paper pe and aluminium foil lids. We have the largest number of cutting presses in Europe and are constantly developing our products to lead the way in technical advancements.
We are leading the way in responding to the requirement for using packaging from reducing plastic consumption by “lightweighting”. We are reducing gauge by 28% and offering more sustainable raw materials including RPET with 30% recycled content and paper based lidding structures.
Unique coding, UniXcode®: a unique code is printed on the surface of the lid and can only be revealed when the lid or sleeve is peeled back. This reverse mirror print effect can also be used for the inclusion of further promotional information, competitions and other marketing opportunities.
RPET lidding material: uses over 30% recycled content and delivers great optical properties and machine efficiencies.
SMARTembosser™: a unique and innovative embossing system that enhances print quality and increases branding opportunities on foil lids.
Latest generation UV HD print capability: we produce ‘gravure quality’ print at radically reduced origination and production costs, particularly advantageous on short run jobs
Post-consumer recycled content (PCR) shrink sleeve: reducing landfill waste, greenhouse gases and energy consumption.
UV light blocking shrink sleeve: allows downgauging of bottle thickness and titanium oxide (TiOx) percentage.
Laser score pour spout: a laser etched pouring aperture on lidding that can be used for drinking on the go and pouring without removing the lid.
Paper PE Lid: 70% plus paper based material from FSC PEFC certified renewable sources. Excellent optical properties and machine performance and low Carbon footprint.
Extended Surface area shrink sleeve: allows brands to add promotional or extra language information on product.
We offer high quality UV Flexo print conversion. Our status as an independent film provider means we offer a wider range of product solutions and stay at the cutting edge of innovation.
Our production capabilities are underpinned by professional accreditations including PS 9000, BRC Version 4 (Grade A) and ISO 9001:2000
Shrink sleeves can be designed specifically for your product to ensure maximum shelf appeal. We have been a leader in the production of sleeves for many years and produce consistently high quality sleeves time and again.
We offer light barrier materials allowing customers the ability to remove Tiox barrier materials from their bottles and lightweighting, reducing environmental impact and taking out cost.
