UNITED CAPS, an international manufacturer of caps and closures, reported that it held a successful event at its Hungarian plant to celebrate the manufacture of its 10 billionth closure this year, its innovative DOUBLEFLOW closure for edible oils. It is the first time in the company’s history that 10 billion closures have been produced in a 12 month period.

Located in Dunavarsány, Hungary, the plant specialises in the production of caps and closures for edible oils and beverages. In line with UNITED CAPS ‘CLOSE TO YOU’ strategy to bring operations close to the customer where appropriate for exceptional customer service, the Dunavarsány plant is the company’s gateway to Eastern Europe. It serves a number of well-known brands in that region, including the Polish brand Wielkopolski oil from Princes Group, one of Europe’s fastest growing food and drink groups. UNITED CAPS is continuing to invest in the Hungarian plant, with a new manufacturing line already under construction.

“We are very proud to have manufactured our 10 billionth closure,” said Mr. Benoit Henckes, CEO of UNITED CAPS. “It is a major milestone that highlights the faith the market puts in UNITED CAPS. It’s a sign of reliability, a badge of honour. Our innovative DOUBLEFLOW closure was the 10 billionth closure. We don’t set out every year to make the most closures. But this year, we are proud that 10 billion times, we’ve set out and succeeded in making the best closures.”

UNITED CAPS celebrated this achievement with an event at its Dunavarsány plant, where the 10 billionth closure was manufactured. The event featured talks by CEO Mr. Henckes and the Dunavarsány Plant Director Mr. Szabolcs Szili.

“We at the Dunavarsány plant are honoured to be recognised for producing the 10 billionth closure for UNITED CAPS,” Mr. Szili said.
