Essentra Packaging has reinforced its global influence by winning three more prestigious awards.

The company was honoured with a second consecutive Asian Manufacturing Award, this time in the Innovative Food/Beverage Packaging Design category. The Asian Manufacturing Award (AMA), presented at a ceremony in Singapore, went to Essentra’s wide-width message tape. Its key advantage is that when a promotion changes, the manufacturer can simply change the message on the tape without redesigning the entire pack.

Essentra also celebrated a Sustainable Package Technical Award from the 4th China Package Technology Innovation and Sustainable Development Forum, for its RippatapeTM product for use on corrugated and fibreboard cartons. Designed primarily for easy opening, Rippatape also increases the compression strength of secondary packaging, reducing the product damage in transit.

Essentra’s award-winning year was capped with victory at the prestigious UK Packaging Awards 2013. The company was presented with The Design Team of the Year Award at a glittering ceremony at the London Hilton.

Martin Dallas, Commercial Director – Essentra Packaging, said: “We are delighted to receive these latest awards, which further highlight how Essentra Packaging’s innovative and creative approach is valued by customers and opinion formers around the world.”
