As a market leader in the manufacturing of plastic containers, Blowplast in late 2023 introduced the manufacture of PET preforms and containers as a solution to help customers from various industries capitalize on the increasing demand for PET packaging. The company is utilizing its technical and research & development expertise to manufacture a range of PET preforms, containers, and caps solutions to meet the diverse needs of the market.
With preforms and blowing machines in its plant, Blowplast makes high-quality PET containers for water, juice and beverages, sauces, honey and spreads, milk and dairy, cooking oil, pharmaceutical, agrochemical, cosmetics, and other industries. One advantage of the fully automated PET machines is that they heat up the raw material, inject, mould, cool, and eject the preforms on their own. The preforms are then subsequently conveyed to the packaging with very minimal human supervision. Additionally, they efficiently reduce downtime and save on energy, therefore lowering production costs.
Available in different designs, sizes and colours, these PET containers are fully tested, certified, and meet regulatory requirements and this marks them safe for use and handling. Our preforms are available in neck size ranges of 28mm to 98mm with a 12grams to 380grams range. The plastic caps are offered in a variety of colors, sizes, and bottle mouth shapes while the containers range from 30 ml-18.9ltr with 28mm to 98mm neck size ranges. The company is aiming to meet the various needs of the local market, East Africa, and Africa at large as far as PET plastic packaging is concerned. Additionally, PET is expected to enable customers to easily label and brand their products, as well as provide an alternative to glass packaging through which customers can view the product in full.
So far, we’ve had positive feedback from the customers we have served especially from the water refill industry and this has enabled us to provide customers with the best option to meet their needs. This has demonstrated our commitment to being a trusted supplier and preferential partner to the plastics industry. At Blowplast, we are also committed to working with our customers to develop solutions that support the move to a more circular economy.
