UK-based Benchmark Packaging has added a Sunpaq line to its Hillington headquarters as part of the company’s expansion in the contract packing sector.

Benchmark managing director Russell Cohen said the solution met all the requirements in terms of display impact and recyclability, with it also having potential across a number of other sectors.

"When we decided to go down the full contract packing route, we wanted to offer the best possible service to our customers and that meant Sunpaq was a packaging option we simply had to have," he said.

According to Benchmark, Sunpaq has a structural technology, which allows products to be displayed with total visibility, both front and back.

The line can also be used to be hung on pegboards or as stand alone products, and is available in five different styles.

The company stated that with every style, shaped cards can also be used, while the potential exists for left-hand/right-hand complementing product placements that increase shelf density.

Sunpaq is a fully-recyclable blister pack alternative, which combines the blister, skin and shrink packaging solutions for maximum shelf appeal.

Besides Sunpaq, Benchmark’s contract packing service includes automated case assembly, specialist carton and tube packing, automated bottle labelling, shrink sleeving, as well as glass inspection and assembly.
