... eco and effective: use KOCH

Sustainable packaging
Eco-friendly packaging is a key purchasing argument. The responsible use of resources is standard when we design blister packaging. We pay attention to an effective design, the homogeneous separation of the materials, and the optimized utilization of the machine format in order to already save on material at the packaging process stage.

100 percent recyclable: cyclePac
We offer a solution with a high recycling rate in the form of our cyclePac mono-material packaging. Should complete closure of the sustainability cycle be requested, we only use cardboard made of recycled paper with FSC certification confirming sustainable forestry management.

We are currently investigating other ecological materials such as biodegradable films, special recyclable plastics and bamboo regarding their suitability for a productive packaging process. For the best possible protection and an appealing presentation of your products.
