For the second time in three years Expac has been nominated for the UK contract packer of the year award. Following on from a year which has seen Expac bring in over £1 million worth of new business, as well as investing in a new 2 ton heated blending vessel, the company has gone from strength to strength. The foundations have been put in place to help the company build on the growth that they have achieved over the past 12 months and continue to develop into 2016.

There have been quite a few changes at Expac over the past year, one of the most notable being the creation of the product development department. A new Technical manager was appointed who will manage the development of product formulations for Expac’s customers and the in house laboratory has been fully kitted out to meet the requirements of the current market place. This has proven to be a very popular addition to Expac’s offerings with customers now able to push forward new product ideas and test potential formulations.

Along with the above Expac has also installed a new 2 ton heated blending vessel. The introduction of this equipment has quadrupled Expac’s batch production capability for lotion and cream products. Prior to this new equipment the blending of creams and lotions was a bottle neck for the company, this has now been resolved resulting in Expac now being able to offer far more competitive prices when it comes to producing formulations that require a heated blending process.

Being shortlisted for this award is proof that the company is moving in the right direction. Not only is the company bringing in new business, but it is also receiving acknowledgement from experts within the contract manufacturing industry.
