United Caps is set to acquire Dewit Plastics’ caps, closures and handles business in a bid to expand its range of offerings.

The business includes screw, tamper-evident (TE) and child-resistant (CRC) closures and handles for large containers.

Dewit Plastics will continue to operate its remaining injection moulding and thermoforming businesses.

United Caps CEO Benoît Henckes said: “We are pleased to be able to expand our already broad portfolio to include these new product offerings.

“Our clients turn to United Caps for innovative solutions to their closure needs, including bespoke solutions.

“By adding this new technology and expertise from Dewit Plastics, we better position ourselves as a single source for clients for their caps, closures, and now handles, requirements.”

United Caps intends to integrate the purchased production assets into its plant in Hoboken, Belgium.

"By adding this new technology and expertise from Dewit Plastics, we better position ourselves as a single source for clients for their caps, closures, and now handles, requirements."

Last month, United Caps announced plans to build a new manufacturing facility in Malaysia to meet increasing customer demand in the region for its caps and closures.

Henckes said that the investment will enable local production of about 300 million closures in the first year.

Headquartered in Luxembourg, United Caps specialises in the design and production of highly-performant plastic caps and closures.

The company has manufacturing facilities in Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Luxembourg and Spain.
