Designs that jump off the shelf

Whether your project involves unique shapes, specialised features, innovative finishes – or just about anything else you can dream up, we’ll work with you to understand your brand, your business challenges, and your desires and develop a solution that balances these needs.


Combining trends in aesthetics, consumer life styles and sustainability with your brand and company objectives, we create a visual mnemonic that represents the design brief.

Advanced visualisation

Using state-of-the art CAD design and rendering software, our team is able to quickly explore “what if?” scenarios and provide alternatives. Producing photo-realistic renderings, even in use and retail environments enables us to help understand your finished product in context.

Powerful prototyping

For many products, real-world focus group testing or review by key stakeholders is best accomplished with a prototype that’s virtually the real thing. We can supply a wide range of prototypes to meet your testing and research needs – quickly and cost-effectively.

Driving Innovation

Our innovation focus is in four areas:

Thermal stability

Many of today’s most demanding applications require hot-fill capabilities and our full line of solutions support this need. Panel-less containers offer outstanding hot-fill performance and enable beautiful aesthetics.

Wide range of sizes and shapes

Our comprehensive line of stock containers can fill a wide range of needs quickly and cost-effectively. These stock lines can also be easily customised to meet specific application and aesthetic needs.

Barrier properties

Great packaging not only keeps the contents in, but oxygen and other elements that degrade the product out. Our advanced solutions ensure the barrier properties your products demand.


The most innovative packaging solutions are worthless unless they can be manufactured and distributed in a way that makes good business sense. Our lightweighting capabilities can help reduce resin demands, finished container weight, and still perform exceptionally.

PET bottles for beverages

We offer over 100 hot fill and cold fill Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) stock bottles for carbonated beverages, waters, juices, teas and sports drinks. Our stock program includes a variety of shapes and sizes to fill your entire line of beverage products.

For a custom beverage container, our process begins with highly skilled industrial designers, a pencil, a piece of paper and an idea (or many ideas). Our designers take inspiration from everywhere – the intricacies of nature to the power of machinery as well as the latest trends in the marketplace – to create durable, lightweight, unique and differentiated bottles.

Beyond design, we are unique in the rigid plastics industry:


• pioneered the development of PET heat set technology, which allows beverages to be filled up to 185 °F (85 °C) to ensure product quality and extended shelf life.

• offer a variety of resin materials, including PET, Polypropylene (PP) and High Density Polyethylene (HDPE).

• provide a variety of barrier options, including mono and multi-layer barrier materials as well as coating technologies, to protect your products against moisture, oxygen, light, or carbon dioxide permeation.

• utilise a range of manufacturing platforms, including injection stretch blow molding, extrusion blow molding, and compression forming, to fit each packaging requirement.

With this vast array of packaging options, we make branding your products a simple and exciting prospect!
