TriMas Packaging, a developer and manufacturer of specialty dispensing and closure products, recently announced a new organizational approach for its global business. Effective immediately, TriMas Packaging is shifting from a market-centric organizational structure toward a product-focused structure. The reorganization ensures a consistent customer experience and product offering across all markets and regions globally. TriMas Packaging’s new structure reorganizes the Rieke, Taplast, Affaba & Ferrari, Plastic, and Rapak brands into three main product categories: dispensing systems, closures, and flexibles.

With the new and enhanced structure, TriMas Packaging is said to have built an agile organization ensuring that specific customer needs are identified at a very early stage. We expect customers to further benefit from the new structure by having access to a team of subject matter experts in all markets. Our product expert teams have a deep understanding of customer needs and market trends. By applying a holistic view of the needs of specific customers, it ensures innovations are developed faster, with the goal of increasing the competitiveness of TriMas Packaging’s clients. “We are celebrating our 100th anniversary this year, and the new structure lays the foundation for an even more successful future,” commented Fabio Salik, president of TriMas Packaging. “With our new structure, we ensure that our product and industry experts are even closer to our customers. Our customers benefit from a consistent brand experience, access to industry experts, and the fast delivery of innovations to help them improve their market position. We are more agile and closer to the market needs. As a global player, we ensure a unique and consistent customer experience across different markets and regions.”

TriMas Packaging is a global manufacturer and provider of products for a wide range of customers predominantly in the consumer product, aerospace, and industrial end-markets – with close to 3,200 employees in 11 countries. With its Rieke, Taplast, Affaba & Ferrari, Plastic and Rapak brands, TriMas Packaging develops and manufactures specialty dispensing and closure products for wide-ranging applications in the beauty and personal care, food and beverage, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical, industrial, and home care end-markets.

Dispensing products include foamer pumps, lotion pumps, fine mist sprayers, trigger sprayers, beverage dispensers, and flip-top caps, among others. Closures include beverage and tethered caps, aseptic caps, sport caps, flip-top caps, packaged food lids, child-resistant caps, tubes, jar and pail closures, as well as a variety of related industrial products, such as drum closures. Flexibles include a variety of bag-in-box solutions, flexible bags, and filling equipment. The Rieke business unit also has a full line of lock-down dispensers suitable for eCommerce, which meet Amazon’s stringent performance criteria. These value-added products are designed to enhance its global customers’ ability to dispense, transport, and store their products.

TriMas Packaging has a commitment to sustainability with a broad range of closures and dispensers made from post-consumer resin, as well as solutions to support a circular economy. TriMas Packaging is the first worldwide provider of a single-polymer-grade dispensing pump. The Mono-2e is a dispenser made from just one type of polypropylene, is already commercially available (to date, competitive products have only been announced), and embodies TriMas Packaging’s strength and market position.

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.
