BERICAP starts closures production in South East Asia

Recently BERICAP has established a production facility in Singapore. The plant shall provide a direct service to customers in the ASEAN-zone, which were up to now served by a sales office and deliveries from BERICAP China and other BERICAP facilities. It shall be the nucleus for further expansion of sales and production facilities in South East Asia.

In the beginning mainly closures for the non-food and non-beverage market will be produced. Production of beverage closures will follow shortly. The facility has the space and capability to enlarge the product program and to increase the output.

One of the products to be produced by BERICAP Singapore is a screw cap with folded tamper evidence band for the agrochemical industry. The manufacturing process of the closure plus additional safety features make the closure difficult to copy and supports anti counterfeiting measures.

Another product will be a hinge closure for bottlers of soya sauce which require anti-drip features, tamper evidence and a closure design allowing capping of hot filled glass bottles.
