United Caps reports on progress in Asian markets and status of new Dinnington factory

United Caps reported that it has been meeting its strategic growth initiatives despite the COVID-19 pandemic, enabling the company to continue to provide customer support, both in terms of implementation of existing caps and closures for new products, as well as continuing to generate 50% of its business from development of caps and closures to meet specific customer needs.

In 2019, the manufacturer of caps and closures expanded its Asia footprint with the opening of a new plant in Kulim, Malaysia. In addition, United Caps has also opened two new European plants last year – Dinnington in the UK and Valframbert in France. The locations were specifically chosen to enhance service to United Caps’ customers in the respective regions.

Benoit Henckes, CEO of United Caps, said: “We continue to enhance our infrastructure to support some of the world’s biggest brands, who look to United Caps’ caps and closures to help create new markets, safeguard product integrity, assure safety and consumer health, and ultimately protect brand reputation.

“For example, our Kulim plant offers logistics and supporting services, including road transportation to Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand, as well as proximity to Butterworth Port to serve the entire ASEAN region with caps and closures for infant nutrition. There is further ability to add production of closures for beverages, medical nutrition, edible oils and vinegars and non-food products.”
