Quadpack partners with Inotech to boost packaging innovation and product offer

Quadpack Industries is doubling on its efforts on innovation. The manufacturer and provider of cosmetic packaging has announced a new partnership with Germany-based company Inotech, for the research and development of new beauty packaging solutions using Inotech’s bi-injection blow moulding process. Quadpack is also taking over Inotech’s cosmetics packaging operation thus adding the German company’s beauty-focused products into its portfolio.

Quadpack takes over Inotech’s cosmetics packaging operation and incorporates its beauty-focused products into its portfolio.

The Barcelona-headquartered manufacturer and provider of beauty packaging has acquired the commercial rights to the patented bi-injection blow moulding (BIBM) of German technology company Inotech. The innovative technology allows the manufacture of products using two materials in a single step.

This would allow, for example, a transparent window to be incorporated in an opaque bottle or two different colours to be introduced in a single component. The process is highly efficient, offering greater precision and producing less material waste, while eliminating the need for assembly. Greater control of materials gives designers more freedom to explore aesthetic options,” explains Jeremy Garrard, Quadpack’s Director of Design and Advanced Technologies and head of the company’s research and development.

Pursuant to the agreement, Quadpack’s department of Design and Advanced Technologies will work with Inotech’s designers, led by Josef Gleixner, to fully exploit the possibilities of the BIBM technique to develop innovative packaging solutions.

Inotech has a special talent for applying science in new and unexpected ways,” comments Quadpack CEO and Co-Founder Tim Eaves. “Our Design and Advanced Technologies department has made great strides in trend analysis and creative package design in the year since its formation. Combine that know-how with Inotech’s technical expertise, throw in a cutting-edge manufacturing process and you have the perfect conditions to trigger real innovation.

New exclusive product offer

As part of the agreement, Quadpack also takes over Inotech’s cosmetics packaging operation and incorporates its beauty-focused products into its portfolio. However, current Inotech cosmetics products will continue to be produced at its factory in Nabburg, Germany.

We are happy to entrust the future of our cosmetics line to Quadpack. It sets industry standards in creative package design and it knows how to sell on a global scale, the two complementary skillsets needed to take this business forward. And with its Design and Advanced Technologies team, our bi-injection blow moulding process will be exploited to its full potential,” says Harald Kausler, Inotech Managing Director.

The financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
