We are happy to handle the entire process, including the procurement of raw materials and packaging. Based on specific individual requirements, we can also facilitate selective contract manufacturing in individual fields, such as mixing, filling/labelling and packing.
Our team is specialised in the collaborative development and implementation of product ideas in accordance with customer requirements. Customer specifications are our benchmark and the driving force behind our work, always with the ultimate goal of product optimisation and innovation.
Depending on requirements, we have a choice of stainless steel or plastic mixing tanks. These comprise both mixing containers and aggregates used exclusively for surfactant-free systems and batching tanks for the manufacture of viscous products. Based on requirements and the order volume, we can accommodate batch sizes of 100-10,000 litres.

labelling / Sleeves
Where labelling is concerned, we have the resources to apply labels to one, two or three sides of the selected container. Alternatively, we also offer round labels and lid labels.
In addition to traditional labelling processes, we have also been using sleeve technology for several years, with a special steam tunnel to ensure high-quality film shrinking.
packaging / packing / commissioning
Depending on the lot size, packaging is carried out either manually or using automated packaging machinery. On request, we can also pack sets of articles and seal several product containers or combinations of containers and accessories together using shrink-wrap to create a single sales unit.

On request, we also offer direct shipping from our warehouse to your customers, carried out without any mention of our company name.
Together, we can help you develop the ideal product for you and your customers. Our performance and capacity are built on state-of-the-art machinery and the expertise of more than 100 skilled members of staff provide the foundation of our success. When developing products, we always examine aspects such as effectiveness, toxicology, ecology and economic efficiency. This applies both with respect to formulations and packaging evaluation. In addition to product development, we can also assist with all aspects of product safety and labelling, as well as compliance with official reporting duties.
