M&H Plastics, part of the RPC Group of companies has introduced a new and fun element to bars and clubs across Europe, the Quaffer!
Developed from its original glass composition and manufactured in plastic by M&H Plastics, the PET Quaffer glass allows bars to mix various drinks in equal measure with one floating on the top of the other, allowing the drink to mix as it is drunk. This creates a novel drinking experience, particularly popular with in-vogue groups looking for playful, alternative drink options.
Sales of the Quaffer have been exceptional with bars reporting up to 600% increase in sales of drink that are suitable for the glass.
The use of PET Polymer to produce the Quaffer suits the market well as it provides a safe receptacle yet still benefits a glass-like quality. Using PET also allows the customer to easily clean the Quaffer and recycle when it has reached the end of its usable life.
The design of the new glass has also been developed to accommodate a snap-on cap and separator plunger - enabling a filled retail product to be marketed, whether alcohol based or for mixed liquid condiments. A range of enticing flavour combinations have been created to attract a range of customers including a healthy herbal energy drink.
The PET Quaffer has been shortlisted as one of the finalists at the UK Packaging Awards, 2016 in the rigid pack category.

Archiman, a men’s skincare brand from France, has recently worked with RPC M&H Plastics to produce their packaging in the form of flexible tubes.

RPC M&H Plastics can offer the tubular range with matching 8398 closure which is exclusive to these three tubular bottles and tottle. The 8398 cap features a cam lock mechanism which is designed to centre the recess of the flip top cap in the exact same position when screwed into place, every time, making it easy to create a uniform design when combined with your brands’ decoration by eliminating any resting place variables.

Keeping it simple: Personal care as it was "Meant" to be
With all the ‘noise’ in our lives today, it is refreshing to see that some brands choose the path less travelled. Instead of having multiple solutions to your personal care regime: what if there were just one? This philosophy is put forward through the new range of “Meant” personal care products, with packaging provided by RPC M&H Plastics.
As a passionate and professional care-giver, Dr Ena strived to produce a product with the finest and safest ingredients, manufactured to an exacting standard. Presenting the new range to market, Dr Ena sought packaging with clean lines but not clinical overtones. This was achieved by partnership with RPC M&H Plastics in Winchester, Virginia who were able to provide a ‘one-stop-shop’ for bottles, jars, closures and decoration.
