Creating Your Custom Plastic Packaging

Sometimes a stock PET bottle, standard HDPE bottle, or an off-the-shelf plastic closure is not sufficient. What you really need is custom packaging. At Drug Plastics, we understand that you may want your product to look special. Perhaps there are filling equipment, regulatory, labeling, light sensitivity, or other packaging requirements you must address as well. We’ll make it easy for you to get the perfect custom plastic bottle and closure for your product.

Understanding Your Requirements

We begin every custom project with a single goal. We strive to thoroughly understand how you want the plastic packaging to look and the specifications it must meet. We call this process requirement gathering. Capturing these qualitative and quantitative details facilitates an on-time, on-budget, and on-target custom plastic packaging solution.

Evaluating Initial Concepts

Depending on your requirements, there may be several ways to achieve the desired look and specifications of your custom plastic bottle or closure. We’ll provide you with all of the design options that meet your needs so that you can decide the best direction for your packaging.

Selecting the Right Materials & Technology

As part of this process, we’ll work with you to select the materials to achieve the right aesthetics, chemical resistance, light transmission, etc. Our in-house engineering team will ensure that the best technology is used to produce your bottle or closure. Should it be blow molded or injection molded? Should it be made on IBM or EMB equipment? We’ll help you answer questions like these, so the product is produced efficiently and to specifications.

Engineering for Flawless Integration

Plastic bottles and closures must be engineered to work seamlessly with every step of the packaging process. The closure must seal perfectly. The bottle must be designed to meet labeling or filling requirements. Both items must function efficiently within the dimensional requirements of the filling operation. You can rest easy knowing our experienced team of engineers will ensure your product meets these requirements.

Designing the Perfect Form

Our in-house designers will create a detailed CAD product drawing outlining every critical dimension of your HDPE bottle, PET bottle, or plastic closure. This drawing will provide the direction needed to create manufacturing molds. It will also be a reference check to ensure that each product we make meets your specifications.

Crafting the Elemental Mold

Drug Plastics is proud to have its own mold-making facility. Our engineers design, fabricate, qualify, maintain, and repair our own molds. Our capabilities range from unit-cavity prototype molds through multi-cavity production molds. We build the highest precision tools using high-grade materials and proprietary technologies we have developed in-house. This ensures that our molds produce a consistent product, perform exceedingly well under high production demands, and provide a higher ROI for you.

Manufacturing to the Highest Standard

While most companies claim to make a quality product, few claim to make a perfect product. For years, we have said we are “A Family of Perfect Quality.” Rightfully so. Materials, equipment, and decades of process knowledge come together to create uniformity and unequaled consistency. That’s why each plastic bottle and closure we produce is virtually perfect and identical, every single time.

Ensuring Quality Throughout the Process

We're proud to be ISO 15378 Certified. Not only are our manufacturing processes controlled and monitored to make plastic bottles and closures right the first time, but we also have backup inspection systems that inspect each product. Error detection devices, random sampling and testing, and a Quality Control department ensure 100% conformity. We strive to make certain that you never receive anything unexpected.

Delivering Support and Service

Our commitment to you does not end when the product arrives. You can depend on Drug Plastics to get answers and assistance. We are here to make sure you are satisfied and happy with your purchase. As a manufacturer ourselves, we know that many companies claim to have great service, but fail to provide it. We promise to continue earning your business and trust by being responsive and dependable.
