“Our Fit for a King tethered closure solutions were developed in collaboration with a consortium of segment leaders in the packaging industry to ensure these closures are Born Ready and that they will have minimal impact on production lines,” said CEO Benoit Henckes. “I strongly advise brands, especially those looking for bespoke solutions, to get in touch and/or visit our stand at drinktec to discuss our range that’s Fit for a King to ensure that they are able to stay in the market as the European Directive on single-use plastics comes into effect.”
UNITED CAPS offers two closure types in its tethered closure Fit for a King line: The Crown Jewel premium molded solution and the outstanding No Drama Queens slitted solution. Both are available in a variety of sizes and colours to meet the needs of a wide range of brands and product types, including still drinks, juices, carbonated drinks and dairy solutions. Versions of these closures manufactured with conventional materials will be shown, along with versions of the same closures made from ISCC+ certified materials that perform with the exact same characteristics as traditional closures, giving brands the ultimate flexibility.
Bespoke Closures also Showcased at drinktec
UNITED CAPS has a proud history of being a strong partner and often talks about being BETTER UNITED. It is a notion that has two facets –the concept of delivering better products and best-in-class solutions but also demonstrating that UNITED CAPS recognises excellence as a team game, including both internal and customer resources. This has resulted in about 50% of UNITED CAPS’ business in the bespoke sector where brands work with the company to meet specific performance and differentiation needs. As a result of these joint R&D projects, UNITED CAPS has mastered difficult techniques like bi-injection, embossing, even fully metallic IML labels and digital label printing. Bespoke closures will be displayed on the drinktec booth, including Pure-TwistFlip, a bespoke product developed for Elopak.
