International cap and closure manufacturer United Caps will exhibit new solutions for three markets at ProPak Asia in Bangkok.

United Caps will exhibit in the French Pavilion, Hall 103, Booth 22 at ProPak Asia, to display its solutions for the agrochemical, infant nutrition, and smart closure markets.

According to Benoit Henckes, CEO, the company will also offer briefings on its new plant in Kulim, Malaysia, set to open in June.

“At ProPak Asia 2019, we will be showing a number of products specific to the Asian market. 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,” he said.

For the agrochemical market, United Caps will exhibit UN-approved closures for liquid and powdered herbicides, insecticides, pesticides and fungicides. These include caps with tamper-evident bands; childproof closures; and standard caps that the company says allow safe and efficient transport of stacked containers.

The infant nutrition solutions on display will include the Protecscoop flip-top hinge closure, which United Caps says allows one-handed filling of baby bottles.

Finally, two anti-counterfeiting “smart closure” technologies will be in display: integrated holographic engraving, and “QR+” technology which combines a QR code with a secure fingerprint.

“We’re also developing several exciting new products. 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,” said Henckes.

PKN will report from the show floor at ProPak Asia from June 12 to 15.
