Staeger Clear Packaging Invests In New Lid And Base Equipment

Following the acquisition by the Stäeger Group of Companies, Stäeger Clear Packaging has now announced the first phase of investment in new equipment at its Coventry location.

The Company has recently installed equipment capable of producing transparent lids and bases in a variety of substrates and sizes. This was designed and purpose built in Switzerland, by the company’s on-site engineering and development team.


Traditionally, lids and bases are produced from manually punched blanks which are then glued at the corners, meaning only PVC can be used.  As this new machine involves welding the corners, a wider range of materials, including Polypropylene, RPET and APET can now be converted and various sizes are available.  Furthermore, by welding die cut blanks, it is easier to control the tolerances of the finished component.

There is also an environmental benefit from this method of production as no adhesives or chemical solvents are used in the process.

Prior to die cutting and welding, the blanks can be decorated to customer’s artwork by litho printing, screen printing, hot foil blocking and embossing, or in combinations of all these.

Stäeger Clear Packaging is excited by the opportunities which the new equipment will provide.

Managing Director Ian Jamie said: “This is the first phase of a planned investment programme, following our acquisition by the Stäger Group.  We are committed to offering the UK market a range of new products, with innovation the key factor.  There will be further developments in this respect over the coming months”.

Stäeger Clear Packaging is one of the UK’s leading plastic carton, lid, base and sleeve producers.  It has introduced many innovations into the market including the environmentally friendly CLEArPET™, made from 50/60% post consumer bottle waste.

The Company is a finalist in the 2008 UK Packaging Awards, in the “The Company of the Year” category.
