V-Shapes, an innovative supplier of vertically integrated products and services for convenient, hygienic and sustainable single-dose packaging, announced that it has formalised a strategic partnership relationship with Singapore-based New Quantum Holdings Pte Ltd (NQH) to expand its presence in Asia who, together with affiliated company Sustainable Green Solutions Pte Ltd (SGSPL), will be V-Shapes’ marketing representative with offices in China, ASEAN, South Korea, and the Middle East.
The company offers value-added business activities via supply chain management and has a significant focus on sustainable technology, making it an ideal choice for V-Shapes. SGSPL will be joining V-Shapes CEO Christian Burattini and Business Development Executive Jesper Gustavsson on Stand AA17 at the upcoming ProPak Asia event, scheduled for 15 to 18 June at BITEC Hall in Bangkok. V-Shapes has worked with NQH/SGSPL on several projects over the past two years, with great progress.
‘We are excited to be a formal strategic partner of V-Shapes in Asia and the Middle East, joining them at ProPak and working on creating a showroom here in Singapore so our clients can experience V-Shapes’ world first innovative sustainable packaging technology,’ says Alan Yeap, CEO of NQH/SGSPL. ‘At the show, we will be presenting the value of V-Shapes sustainable and 4R (Reduce, Return, Recycle, Reward) concept sachets and demonstrating the six-lane ALPHA machine that enables packaging brand owners, converters/fillers, governments and NGO/NPOs to accomplish the complete manufacturing process of V-Shapes’ unique sustainable single-dose sachets under one roof with a compact footprint and on demand full colour branding of the industry’s highest quality.’
‘We expect that expanding our relationship with NQH/SGSPL will spur further growth for us in Asia and the Middle East, giving customers more localised support in the countries NQH/SGSPL serves,’ says Jesper Gustavsson, Business Development and Founding Partner at V-Shapes. ‘In line with our focus on sustainability via the 4R program, we will also be showing at ProPak a new high-barrier 100% polypropylene material recently certified as fully recyclable by Interseroh. These materials, reNEW oX-100 and reNEW oX-500, were designed by V-Shapes and consist of a sheet of polypropylene copolymers with a high performance barrier. They are designed to be detected, sorted and recycled in the industrial waste stream. Interseroh ranked these two products at the high end of the scale in terms of suitability for mechanical recycling and the provision of secondary products.’
Gustavsson explains that typical barrier products also consist of multiple layers but are comprised of multiple polymers that severely limit their ability to be recycled, or prevent recycling altogether. With this new material, it adds no polyethylene or PET to the recycling stream that would downgrade its recyclability, as is the case with other barrier materials, and its mono polymer construction makes it widely recyclable around the globe. These new materials create the same size and weight sachets as other 100% polypropylene materials used by V-Shapes.
