Consumer products manufacturer TriMas has announced that its Rieke business has entered a strategic partnership with INEOS Hygienics.
Under this partnership, the companies plan to provide products that will support efforts to curb the transmission of the coronavirus.
TriMas president and chief executive officer Thomas Amato said: “We are excited to partner with INEOS Hygienics to support their urgent needs in the quest to help improve personal hygiene and fight the spread of germs.
“This is an exciting new customer win for Rieke, as we continue to invest in growing our packaging business by expanding our innovative product portfolio and customer base through organic initiatives and M&A.”
Recently, INEOS contracted Rieke to manufacture dispenser pumps for its new hand sanitisers.
Rieke in involved in the production of specialty dispensing, closure and jar products.
It produces dispenser pumps, fine mist sprayers, beverage dispensers and flip-top caps for the beauty & personal care, food & beverage, pharmaceutical & nutraceutical, industrial, and home care markets.
Rieke is planning to launch INEOS Hygienics’ production in one of its locations within Taplast.
Last year, TriMas announced the acquisition of Taplast. It serves a wholly owned division of TriMas’ Rieke business.
Rieke sales and corporate development vice-president David Jones said: “We look forward to working closely with the INEOS Hygienics team on this important initiative.
“We are committed to collaborate on our design and technical solutions, while providing superior quality, delivery and service on these essential products.”
In February this year, TriMas acquired flexible packaging brand Rapak from Liqui-Box for an undisclosed amount.
