UNITED CAPS is delighted to announce that its facility in Hoboken has won the award of ‘Most Promising Export Company of the Year 2015’ at De Nacht van de KMO – an annual event that recognises outstanding SME companies, businesses and individuals in Flanders, Belgium.
With more than 75 years of experience, UNITED CAPS has become a leader in the development and production of high-performance plastic caps and closures. Extensive innovative capabilities and a broad portfolio have made UNITED CAPS a preferred partner to many of the world’s leading companies. UNITED CAPS produces 9 billion caps every year and exports them to countries around the world.
The ultra-modern plant at Hoboken is part of the UNITED CAPS group of companies, a highly dynamic and flexible, family business with an ever-expanding global footprint. Experience, expertise and innovative thinking combined with Antwerp’s economic driving force enable the company to compete on a level playing field in the global marketplace. A significant percentage of the caps produced at the Hoboken facility, for example, are shipped all the way to Singapore.
“We are extremely proud to be elected ‘Most Promising Export Company 2015′,” says Steve Daems, plant director UNITED CAPS Hoboken. “The acknowledgment is the crowning glory for all the hard work put in by our Hoboken team, and the entire UNITED CAPS group. It is a great honour for our successes and ambitions to be recognised with such a prestigious award.”
