Plastic Packaging introduction

Plastic Packaging focuses primarily on the value added and generally faster growing segments of rigid plastic packaging. The segments in which we have chosen to operate are technologically advanced: significant intellectual property and product innovation are key to many of the products.

The rigid plastic packaging market remains fragmented with the top 10 manufacturers accounting for just 18% of the market. PIRA International, a provider of business intelligence to the packaging industry, estimates that the rigid plastics market declined slightly in value terms in 2009, but is expected to be the fastest growing segment within plastic packaging.

Rexam offers its customers a global manufacturing and sales capability. The three divisions that make up the sector share a number of customers and are united by common injection moulding and other technologies and a focus on intellectual property, innovation and operational excellence.

Products include spray samplers, lipstick and mascara cases, compacts, closures for fragrances, lotions and beverages, fine mist and foam pumps, high barrier food containers and sophisticated drug delivery devices.
