Focus on innovation

The Mpact Plastics Innovation and Design Centre is the hub for providing the conceptualisation, development and design services for customers. The cross-functional team focuses on material, design, process and technology. The team at the centre drives innovation using the latest computer-aided design and model-building technology to ensure that all parameters are met before packaging arrives on the retail shelf. Designs are based on filling line requirements, shelf presence, environmental considerations, supply chain requirements, costs, preservation and shelf life. Moreover, Mpact Plastics is on a constant drive to reduce the weight associated with our products.
