Engel and Plastisud: Joint Venture for China
To meet the specific needs of the Chinese market, the mold manufacturer Plastisud, Castelnaudary, France, has joined forces with Engel Austria, Schwertberg, Austria, the producer of injection molding machines, to form a joint venture. Under the name of Green Cap, they are offering turnkey solutions for the production of sealing caps for water and soft drinks containers in China. Green Cap installed its base in Shanghai in the premises of Engel.
Around the globe, demand for caps and closures is expanding by around 5% per year – and China is the world’s largest market in terms of volume. The world’s most populous country is imposing increasingly stringent requirements on packaging products and their manufacture: the weight of packaging needs to be reduced, quality needs to be raised and uncompromising performance must be delivered with maximum energy efficiency.
