Renowned for creativity and innovation, the company strives to constantly push the boundaries of thermoformed packaging. Whether it’s implementing European production of new and challenging technologies for the likes of P&G’s Gillette brand, using its design capability to create solutions to packaging dilemmas or helping a new client who needs bespoke packaging designed and delivered within a five-week time frame.
Plastique entered into a new phase of forward development & growth this year. The group was acquired by ESCO Technologies Inc. whose headquarters are in St Louis USA.
Plastique’s current UK & European operations are now part of ESCO’s Thermoform Engineered Quality LLC (TEQ) operating subsidiary located in Huntley, Illinois. TEQ is a market leader in the development and manufacture of highly technical thermoformed plastic packaging with a significant position in the medical and pharmaceutical markets utilising clean room technology.
The combination of skills in design and development and manufacture from the latest conversion technology available will provide Plastique with significant opportunities to accelerate growth and allow a further expansion into a broader platform of new products and development.
The company will continue to develop their thin walled fibre operation in line with the core plastics business and now have the capability to provide a global supply option to existing and new customers.
Packaging Innovations London is co-located with Luxury Packaging London 2016, taking place at London’s Olympia on 14-15 September.
