Composite cans, cores and tubes for consumer packaging

Tube packaging is an excellent way to add value to your brand and stand out on the shelf. There’s a sheer range of possibilities. From food to cosmetics – from fashion to electronics – from luxury to pragmatic. This is what we specialise in, with our main mission being: to spread your message.

Tubes that make a difference

Food or non-food? Our cardboard tubes are versatile in use, produced with passion and designed to stand out on any retail shelf. We transform plain round and neutral tubes into personalised eye-catchers. From anonymous, functional and protective, we move your packaging to attractive and communicative. You can definitely count on our added value as a consumer packaging specialist.

Why would you opt for cardboard tubes?

Our tubes are not only durable, functional and protective, they also give your brand a professional appeal and offer numerous unique product features. Tubes are the perfect choice for use as airtight packaging, for instance, thus preserving aromas and flavours and preventing waste. In short, your product is guaranteed a long shelf life. Choose a closure that best suits your needs, for example the easy peel or the recessed membrane closure for ultimate freshness. But you also have many other options in paper, plastic or metal. So put us to the test and let us help you find the right packaging solution.

You can also contact us for a wide range of printing options, variable lengths and diameters. All distinctive features that will keep your tubes top of mind with consumers.
