The numerous patents we have been awarded prove how committed our employees are to innovation. The resulting innovations have also received international acclaim. Our one-hand flip-top cap, for instance, was awarded two prizes in 2003: the German Packaging Prize in the "Prototypes" category and the WorldStar of the World Packaging Organisation. This cap has a worldwide patent and is unique in its application. It is a dual-component cap consisting of PP and TPE and features a TPE press-button opening system enabling easy operation with just one hand.
