Protective plastic packaging with purpose
Our plastic packaging products
Your sustainability partner
Sustainable packaging is rightly attracting a groundswell of consumer interest but it has been a steadfast Robinson principle since our earliest days. We are highly proficient at marrying sustainability with the best in product protection, functionality, quality, aesthetic appeal, and of course production efficiency.
Our technical experts embed sustainability into the design, future-proofing it by using post-consumer recycled material (PCR), designing for recyclability, lightweighting, with lower carbon emissions. They are also adept at delivering solutions that are competitive and compatible with your manufacturing processes.
Which markets do we serve?
Food and drink
Our food and drink packaging, quite simply, evolve alongside brands and consumer needs; committed to helping our customers deliver with speed and efficiency.
Personal care and beauty
Whether your brand is prestige or masstige, we can tailor a packaging solution accordingly.
The range of products in this sector is as extensive as its consumers’ requirements, across bathroom and kitchen cleaning, dishwashing and laundry, and air care.
Why choose plastic packaging?
Product safety and protection
Plastic is hygienic, has high barrier properties and protects products from contamination. Different plastic polymers hold different features and benefits, and we can help you select the material that is the most appropriate to protect your product throughout the supply chain, and ensure it achieves the required shelf life.
Consumer safety and security
Unlike alternative materials plastic is shatterproof and not prone to breakage or rust. These inherent properties are what make plastic a safe material for our customers and retailers to work with. Safety features such as tamper evidence (TE) and child resistance closures (CRC) are easily incorporated.
Lightweight and robust
Plastic packaging is very lightweight with excellent resistance to impact. With one of the lowest carbon footprint of packaging materials, they require less energy to manufacture, less fuel to transport, achieve more units per pallet if stackable and require less energy to recycle back into valuable raw materials.
The range of different plastics creates infinite opportunities in shape and structure. They can be moulded to create a variety of shapes and features that cannot be achieved with any other material. Plastics have a high strength to weight ratio, offering excellent durability even with the thinnest of profiles.
Functionality of design
When plastic is processed it is heated and becomes flexible or even a liquid. This feature of the material allows our designers to create intricate design features such as integral handles on bottles, angled necks, tamper-evident tabs, live hinges and multi-compartment packs.
Conservation of natural resources
Plastic packaging is designed to be recyclable and can be made from high amounts of recycled material. Most plastics can be recycled and reused multiple times. We are actively increasing our use of post-consumer recycled material in our packaging and using plastics that are widely recyclable.
