PET preforms, bottles, jars and closures

Overview


Mpact's plant in Wadeville (Gauteng) is South Africa's primary PET converter, manufacturing preforms, bottles, wide mouth jars and closures for the food, beverage, household and chemical markets. It's also a leading player in the wide-mouth PET jar market and a market leader in hotfill technology for PET bottles. The plant houses a state-of-the-art compression moulding facility with a beverage closure capacity of more than 1.6 billion units per annum and an advanced laboratory.

Employing leading-edge technology, the focus is on high-cavity preform moulds, oxygen barrier materials and high-output bottle blowing. This operation leads the field in hotfill PET technology, and is ISO certified. Its three prime competencies are injection moulding of preforms; stretch blow moulding of bottles; and single stage moulding of both bottles and wide-mouth jars.

Mpact's closures unit is also housed in the Wadeville factory. The unit uses injection and compression moulding technology and possesses cost-effective laser printing and technologically advanced PVC-free liners, which allow the closures to be recycled after use. Mpact Plastics has invested in the latest processing equipment allowing for high-speed, high-volume lightweight closure production, maximising both cost effectiveness and efficiency. Furthermore, advanced in-line granulation reduces waste to an absolute minimum during the injection moulding process. Quality control facilities and well-equipped laboratories monitor every aspect of the production process, ensuring that stringent food hygiene requirements are maintained at all times. The plant is ISO 9001 and FSSC 22 000 certified.
