Creating a better bottle
“Good design is partially creativity and innovation, but primarily knowledge and awareness.” Chuck Green, designer, ideabook.com
We offer you a wealth of PET design, engineering and production knowledge all in one place. SIPA takes a truly holistic packaging development approach based on experience with the entire supply chain. Plus, SIPA is the only company offering innovation and engineering capabilities in both injection and blowing processes. You can consult SIPA experts for advice and solutions at any stage of the PET production process to keep costs down and productivity high. The packaging a consumer sees on the shelf greatly influences the purchase decisions. Ideally, bottle design marries perfect function with seamless brand expression. To reach that ideal, final containers and preforms must complement each other perfectly.
That’s where our packaging expertise comes in. Our technical, creative and marketing professionals collaborate with you on all kinds of packaging projects. SIPA’s “better bottle” development ensures you can achieve your goals for market appeal and functionality while reducing risks and costs. Design ideas undergo rigorous testing and development via process engineering and our uniquely advanced prototyping before moulds are manufactured to produce the final container.
With 30 years of technical experience in the field of moulds and machinery for the production of PET containers, SIPA is today the world’s second-largest mould maker, with state of the art tooling facilities in 2 continents (Italy and China) and more than 350 people involved in the design and manufacturing of moulds.

The added value of the "line" product: engineering, standardisation and customisation.
WITH PLANT ENGINEERING THE DESIGN IS RATIONALISED BY COMBINING A NUMBER OF FACTORS, SUCH AS:
- The customer's production needs.
- The structural limits of the area in which the line is to be installed.
- The machines and conveyors making up the system.
- The cost of the individual components.
- Our commitment to respecting the Environment.
- System operating flexibility and optimisation of logistic flows.
- Guaranteeing a reduced global TCO.
Our experience allows us to define specific standards, both for the quality of service and components (standardisation).
Finally, the systems are designed and created to meet the specific needs of each individual customer, while respecting the high standards of quality guaranteed by our Company. (customisation).
