Nikwax

Reducing production costs

Nikwax manufactures Tech Wash and TX.Direct, the leading waterproofing products worldwide for outdoor clothing and equipment. Adam Arnold, supply manager at Nikwax: “We weren’t happy  with the quality of the closures for our packaging. Teamplast designed a closure with a new thread system which only needed a new automatic capping system instead of hand capping. This improved our packaging and increased our production rate at the same time. Furthermore the complete pack is now made from a single polymer to facilitate the recycling process.”

Professional approach

Adam Arnold: “Nikwax has been working with Teamplast for the past 5 years. Our overall experience with Teamplast is good. They’ve helped us greatly improve our packaging. Our visits to the manufacturing facilities in the Netherlands confirmed the impression we had of Teamplast: a company with a professional approach.”
