Over the last four-decades Plastique has worked with Europe’s leading multinationals to manufacture innovative thermoformed packaging, engineered to maximise revenue, reduce cost and increase speed to market. Manufacturing facilities in Nottingham, UK, and Poznan, Poland, are certified to ISO9001, ISO 14001, ISO 13485:2016 and BRC/IOP, and produce packaging for a wide variety of sectors including cosmetics and toiletries, personal care, pharmaceutical, food and drink, electronics, component handling and retail.

Part of the TEQ Group

In February 2016, Plastique was acquired by ESCO Technologies’ Thermoform Engineered Quality LLC (TEQ) operating subsidiary, headquartered in Huntley, Illinois, US. TEQ is a market-leader in the development and manufacture of highly technical thermoformed plastic packaging with a significant position in the Medical and Pharmaceutical markets utilising cleanroom technology.

New Class 7 cleanroom

To expand their reach in the Medical/Pharma arena, the group installed a state-of-the-art ISO Class 7 cleanroom at Plastique’s Nottingham facility, allowing European customers to benefit from TEQ’s experience in the manufacture of precision-made, custom thermoformed medical packaging. This extensive knowledge of the sector combined with Plastique’s highly experienced team undertaking all design, sampling and production tooling in-house, means customers can be assured of the company’s ability to meet medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers’ most rigorous packaging requirements.

The new cleanroom facility is certified to ISO 13485:2016. The latest certification represents a significant step forward from the previous issue of the standard and contains more exacting requirements for the medical packaging sector. In addition, the certification meets and exceeds the requirements of ISO 9001 derivatives, enabling competitive advantage, and offering non-medical device clients much greater product confidence.

Precision manufacture

Everything we do, we do with absolute precision. We are constantly looking for ways to refine or polish the way we operate as a company, manufacturing teams and individuals. Our goal is to provide clients with the most advanced thermoformed solutions: designed, produced and delivered to exacting standards.

By integrating lean manufacturing principles, we’ve increased the value of everything we produce. We’ve developed a documented process that ensures the integrity of our products, but made it flexible enough to address unique problems. We’re constantly staying up to speed with new technology so as to be able to pass that knowledge onto our customers through the products we design and produce for them.

Medical Packaging Products available globally

Products manufactured include custom thermoformed handling trays, suitable for high-speed production with automated assembly and transit for a range of products including: handling trays for auto-injectors, dry powder inhalers, injection moulded components, prefilled syringes, pharmaceutical bottles and medical electronics. Other medical packaging solutions available include trays, procedure sets, clamshells, tubs, covers, lids, sterile barrier blisters and seal blisters. And, being part of TEQ, supply is available to both European and Global customers.
