FAQ


Do we design packaging?

Yes, we do. With the extensive skill and resources available to us we can cater for most of your requirements.

Do we have minimum order quantities?

Generally our minimum on stock items will be approx 1000 units. On items that we do not have in stock the MOQ is 2500 units. Keep in mind that the larger the order, the more we can save you in per-part costs.  We do however only deliver whole cartons of product.

How much will my tooling cost?

Tooling costs vary dramatically; it depends upon the complexity of the design and material requirements to manufacture the mould.

What is our average delivery lead time?

If we have the product in stock that you need, we can deliver it within 2 days.
If we need to manufacture the product for you, please expect a lead time of 2 weeks(ex works).
If you want a custom product to be developed, our sales and design engineering team will work closely with you to understand your time constraints and do everything possible to meet or exceed your expectations.

What is the process to develop a new product?

We begin with an assessment of your needs through meetings and analysis. From there, using 3D design software, our CAD engineers create a packaging concept for you.

Once this design is approved, we move to developing prototype tooling which we use to create prototype packaging. The prototype packaging is then presented for your approval. When the packaging meets your final approval, we create the production tooling and, when you are ready, begin creating your packaging in our production facility.


What materials are used?

The materials most commonly used to make our blow moulded products are High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE), and Polyvinylchloride (PVC).
Our injection moulded products are most commonly produced from Polypropylene (PP), however a selection of speciality materials are also used.

We can colour match and mould products in any colour of your choice, including pearlescents and metallics.


What quality processes are in place?

We are dedicated to maintaining the highest possible level of quality with all our products and services.  Quality assurance processes are in place for manufacturing whereby samples are taken from each machine a minimum of every hour and a series of checks are made and recorded by trained quality personnel.  Furthermore all relevant information including cycle time and weight are also recorded for full traceability.
Plas-Pak has a motto “A1 all the time”. If a product is not “A1”, i.e. meeting all the quality inspection criteria, it will not pass inspection.To create the perfect product, our machinery needs to be in tip-top condition.  That’s why we continually maintain our machines and also upgrade them to incorporate the latest technologies and meet the latest industry standards.  We also invest in new machinery to cater for the constant expansion of the company.
