Plastisud/Engel end exclusive jv for cap making in China

Having collaborated for more than a year in the manufacturing of caps for water and soft drinks in China, French mould maker Plastisud and Austrian injection moulding machine maker Engel have decided to open up the cooperation to other suppliers.

Under the Green Cap joint venture, the firms had bundled their competencies, offering tailored turnkey solutions for the Chinese market. But now, “to do justice to the increasing demand in China”, the two companies have agreed to discontinue the exclusivity of their cooperation.

In terms of volume, China is the world's biggest market for drinks caps. The demand for injection moulding solutions is growing continuously and with it the requirements. The weight of packaging needs to be reduced, quality needs to be raised and uncompromising performance must be delivered with maximum energy efficiency, says the firms.

If the injection moulding machine and mould are perfectly matched from the outset, quality and efficiency potentials can be leveraged to the maximum; this explains why more and more processors are turning to system solutions from a single source.

"We will continue to mutually develop and commission turnkey solutions for our customers in the future," emphasises Jean-Luc Giraud, the CEO of Plastisud. "The difference is though that both Engel and Plastisud can now also implement complete systems for the Chinese market with other suppliers. This will make our customer potential even greater. We can now also supply to processors, who are committed to working with a specific injection moulding machine supplier or mould maker due to factory standards."
