Established in June 2021 by PET engineering and Comep, Competek boasts a packaging team of 10 people whose knowledge and expertise, gained over twenty years, has enabled the company to provide customized solutions for our clients.

Competek’s mission is to make a positive contribution towards developments in the packaging industry by providing solutions which are beneficial for our planet. Sustainable packaging solutions is more than a pay-off, in that it’s what the team is committed to providing for their customers on a daily basis. Sustainable solutions at an environmental level as well as from the point of view of the investment that the customer
needs to make.

Complete Packaging Solutions

The secret to a high-performance bottle starts from selecting the right preform and having a functional design. With its packaging optimization service, Competek provides customers with a team of experts who will support the customer every step of the way in order to develop the bottle and, if required, helping them choose the right preform always supported by a production area of 850 m2, an injection machine, three blowers and a certified laboratory using state-of-the-art machinery. A winning formula which provides a complete packaging solutions service.

On the subject of preforms, in addition to the standard tests associated with dimension checks, the team can carry out further tests such as DSC and IV tests both on the preforms available on the market and on those developed and injected in-house using the husky machine. An analysis of the bottle is then carried out with a series of tests as required by the standard procedures such as those prescribed by ISSBT and CETIE or by following the control procedures specified by the client. In the case of a new commission the team provides a unique prototyping service, having created a pilot mould, the bottles can be blown in our production facility. This is where the innovation lies, our in-house laboratory and the expertise we have acquired, the prototyping process, which involves finalizing the design, launching the mould, and blowing the bottles, can now be achieved in just ten hours. A service which we can provide thanks to a specific workshop developed
and intended for the most demanding teams with tight timings.

Providing Lightweight and RPET solutions

When it comes to the sustainability of a bottle, we immediately think of the words “Lightweight” and “Recycled PET”, two services that meet the various needs of brands.
Competek’s packaging optimization services can adapt to the changes our customers wish to make to their packaging. In the case of lightweight solutions, the team will analyze the existing bottle, any areas for improvement and test the new output by certifying its performance by approving the container so that the client can begin production with confidence. In the case of recycled PET, on the other hand, the company provides
a way to assess the different behaviors of various grades of the recycled materials used to produce the bottle. The comparative tests carried out will offer the recommendations required so that mechanical performance matches the customer’s requirements.

And if the packaging is approved, Competek will provide the moulds and line conversion irrespective of the type of machinery the client has, because Competek is the one-stop-shop for all your needs.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
