A 60% sales increase in 2020 alone
: Africa is well on its way to becoming the leading market for SACMI Rigid Packaging Technologies
With figures like these, SACMI is more than ready for the upcoming edition of Propak West Africa, the continent's leading packaging & processing technologies fair, to be held at the Landmark Center in Annex (Lagos) from 14 to 16 September 2021
With over 200 complete CCM lines
supplied, SACMI is Africa’s number one provider of machines for the manufacture of plastic caps with compression technology. On the strength of this positioning, SACMI is leading the market by proposing new lightweighting
solutions that reduce cap-container system weights without affecting performance.
While applied at different speeds on different markets and areas, sustainable packaging is an across-the-board priority for the key African players who are, with considerable foresight, investing in new machines and production lines with a decidedly 3Rs
focus (reduce, reuse, recycling
SACMI - which in recent years has sold some fifty IPS preform production machines on the African market
- has a unique ability to provide integrated innovation and the relative technological responses. From this perspective, the ultralight neck-capsule systems for water
are truly outstanding (just 0.8 g per cap, 1g for the neck). No less exceptional are the new 26 mm
solutions (GME30.40 and GME30.41) developed for CSD beverages
, larger sizes included.
Alongside the technology challenge stands a materials-related one, with producers now turning their attention to new opportunities in the PET sector
. With its preform machine range able to use up to 50% PET in recycled flake form and up to 100% rPET
, SACMI has developed a comprehensive set of solutions that respond to new market sensitivities. These have also proven to be successful outside the European area (the first to take a stance on sustainable plastics at social and regulatory framework level).
Visitors to Propak West Africa will have a great opportunity to get a close look at the integrated SACMI Rigid Packaging Technologies range on the Group's stand, 1K41
. This includes solutions for metal caps
(crown caps and aluminum caps), which have also reached the milestone of 100 solutions sold in Africa.
Join us at the SACMI stand at Propak West Africa (14-16 September 2021, Landmark Centre, Annex-Lagos, stand 1K41). We look forward to seeing you!
