trays suitable for high-speed
production, with automated
assembly and transit. Handling
tray solutions include auto-injectors, dry powder inhalers, injection-moulded components,
pre-filled syringes and pharmaceutical bottles.
Having both a North American and European presence enables TEQ to offer supply opportunities to both European and
multinational medical device
and pharmaceutical customers.

TEQ launched it's Fibrepak
production in 2014

ing the pulp used has come from
sustainably managed forests.
Multiple production lines are already running at the company's
Polish facility in Poznan.
Fibrepak is high quality, thinwalled and smooth sided, meaning that packaged products do
not get scratched. It a dust-free
material, so there is no particle
contamination. It is non-toxic,
microwavable, static-free and incredibly shock absorbent. It can
also be treated to be moisture
resistant for sustained periods.
Fibrepak also provides logistics
advantages over rigid cellular
plastic foam packaging, thanks
to its ability to enable product

An alternative
also available
For those wanting a plastic
alternative, TEQ also offers a
natural and sustainable packaging solution called Fibrepak.
To produce the material, natural
fibres are converted into high
tolerance thermoformed pulpproducts using a unique vacuum technique and 'cure-in-themould' technology.
The fibres are derived from locally sourced FSC Chain of Custody certified materials, mean-

stacking and 'nesting'.
TEQ has developed the thermoforming expertise required
to manufacture Fibrepak products to a customer's exact
specifications - even for complex shapes and designs. As a
result, the company is gaining
popularity across many sectors. Currently, products varying from fruit and vegetables,
confectionery, electrical and
devices to drinks, homecare
and postal packs are packaged
in the material.
And it can be recycled in traditional waste streams along
with paper, compostable and
biodegradable materials.

Fibrepak is also currently developing web films that can be
heat sealed to the top flange
of a container. These can have
a range of peel strengths, from
easy peel to semi-permanent
without any treatment to the fibre packaging.
" We continue to invest in
the latest technology for both
our plastic products and Fibrepak with significant investment in new Kiefel thermoforming machines made in
the last twelve months.
Regardless of material selection we remain fully committed
to delivering innovative packaging solutions, designed and
manufactured with sustainability at the forefront of our thinking, " says Belamine.
While legislation and policy
designed to tackle the plastics
issue finds its feet, TEQ will
continue to lead in bringing
about quality, sustainable packaging options for the emerging
circular economy, working with
customers to create innovative
new products that are fit for
purpose in the 21st century.
