UNITED CAPS, an international manufacturer of caps and closures, today reported it is attending ProPak Asia for the third consecutive year. The show is scheduled for 12 to 15 June in Bangkok. UNITED CAPS will be located in the French Pavilion, Hall 103, Booth 22. The company is also celebrating its 80th anniversary in 2019.
During the show, UNITED CAPS will offer briefings on its new manufacturing plant in Kulim, Malaysia, which will be fully operational in June 2019.
“At ProPak Asia 2019, we will be showing a number of products specific to the Asian market,” said Benoit Henckes, CEO of UNITED CAPS. “We are also proud to announce the inauguration of our brand-new Malaysian plant as part of our CLOSE TO YOU strategy. The new plant, which is already operating ahead of its official launch in June, is key to continuing to improve our support of the Asian market. This proximity enables us to shorten delivery times and focus on products that are the most relevant to this important market region as demand for our products continues to grow.”
UNITED CAPS will exhibit a wide range of off-the-shelf and bespoke products at the show; including its Infant Nutrition, Agrochemical and SMARTER closure lines:
- Agrochemical Closures: Highly-secure, UN-approved closures are used in the packaging of liquid and powdered herbicides, insecticides, pesticides and fungicides. This includes a unique moulded and patented tamper evidence (TE) band that sets the standard in Europe and the U.S.; a dedicated selection of child-resistant closures that combine child resistance with TE; and standard caps that enable safe and efficient transportation when containers are stacked.
- Infant Nutrition Closures: As the market reference for snap caps and scoops for tins of infant milk powder for more than 70 years, UNITED CAPS continues to develop and improve its line of infant nutrition closures. This includes our popular PROTECSCOOP flip-top hinged closure whose innovative design allows one-handed preparation of infant feeding bottles. Its contamination-free foil-sealed chamber protects the included scoop until use, and an integrated hook keeps the scoop handy for further use.
- SMARTER Closures: With an estimated US$460 billion in counterfeit goods worldwide, counterfeit prevention has significant economic benefits, including protection of jobs and the prevention of deaths caused by counterfeit drugs. Two different anti-counterfeiting solutions will be on display at the show: QR+ technology, a combination of a QR code and secure fingerprint that helps brands enhance consumer confidence; and holographic engraving integrated into a closure, forming an intrinsic and irremovable security feature, providing immediate verification with no need for additional scanners or other equipment.
“We’re also developing several exciting new products.” added Henckes. “If visitors would like an opportunity to shape the next generation of closures for infant nutrition, and would like to take part in line trials, we want to talk to them! They will have the chance to be among the first to benefit from the latest innovations from UNITED CAPS”.
80 Years Young
Reaching our 80th anniversary is a significant milestone that UNITED CAPS will be celebrating throughout 2019. “Our long heritage in continued success in this business is a powerful endorsement of the level of knowledge and expertise we have been able to accumulate over the years,” Henckes remarked. “Our legacy is one of progress, but we are certainly not resting on our laurels. We are looking ahead to continued and significant innovation during our next 80 years with a platform designed to continue our growth and progression. We are excited for what comes next!”
