Silgan Dispensing focuses on agility and sustainability

To better address the changing needs of consumers worldwide, the designer and manufacturer of pumps and sprayers for the home, health and beauty markets is focusing on time-to-market and sustainability. The company recently launched its first suite of products featuring post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic and a series products of ready-to-be customised.

To help brands to better meet their time-to-market and sustainability targets, Silgan Dispensing is launching two new initiatives this year: the XpressService for Fragrance and Skincare, which aims to boost agility and flexibility, and a series of pumps and trigger sprayers featuring PCR plastic.

Short series and customisation

XpresService for Fragrance and Skincare is our way of being agile, flexible and quick in reducing the time to market for our partners’ new launches and accelerating their lead time for replenishment orders,” explains the manufacturer of dispensing solutions.

The service features several ranges of standard caps and necks in various colours for the company’s Melody and Orchestra pumps, along with in-house etching capabilities. Brands immediately receive the price corresponding to the chosen shade and can expect to save 4 to 6 weeks compared to a usual project.

This new solution complement other recent technical advances allowing to accelerate new product developments, such as the customizable extensions for spray actuators that Silgan showcased at the latest Luxe Pack Monaco show. Indeed, brands are increasingly eager to keep in line and even ahead of the latest trends, reduced lead-times, in particular for short series and customised lines, clearly appear as key factors of success.

PCR pumps and triggers

Sustainability is the other important development axis of the year for Silgan. “To consumers, sustainable packaging is more than a ‘nice to have;’ it is something they are demanding of brands more and more,” highlighted Brinder Gill, senior manager, global beauty category development.

Silgan Dispensing’s first PCR range of pumps and trigger sprayers includes:

  • the SD200® lock-down dispenser.
  • the TS800® trigger sprayer
  • the SD®20C pump for liquid soaps.
  • the Mark VII® Max fine-mist sprayer combining performance and smooth actuation.

Made from previously used plastic diverted from landfills to be re-used in a new product, PCR plastic helps to reduce waste and energy use while still achieving high levels of performance. “Silgan Dispensing’s PCR products give our clients an innovative way to meet a growing consumer demand, while also helping achieve their own sustainability goals,” concludes Brinder Gill.
