    MENSHEN Member of the Energy Efficiency Network of IK (Kopie 2)

    One of 18 member companies

    Saving energy not only brings economic benefits, but is above all very sustainable. The issue of energy efficiency is a central topic to the international competitiveness of the German economy and the climate protection. The IK Industrievereinigung Kunststoffverpackungen e.V. is therefore also committed to greater energy efficiency in the plastic packaging industry. Since the beginning of July 2017, IK has been a co-signatory of the Germany-wide initiative Energy Efficiency Networks of the Federal Government. Together with 22 business associations, the initiative, under the auspices of the Federal Ministry of Economics, is committed to creating around 500 new networks by 2020. The stated goal is to save 5 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions through network work. Likewise, in the summer of 2017, IK launched a first energy efficiency network in the industry. The network participants regularly meet to exchange experiences and ideas around the subject of energy efficiency and agree on a concrete savings goal. MENSHEN is one of 18 member companies of this initiative.

    Force Majeure

    MENSHEN remains capable of producing and delivering

    You will have heard through the media that Ducor and Total – significant manufacturers of thermoplastic granules in Europe – have reported Force Majeure for their production facilities in the Netherlands as well as in Belgium and France. This means that bottlenecks may occur in supplies to the European market of certain plastic pellets which may result in the complete incapability of these manufacturers to supply.

    On the basis of today’s planning options, MENSHEN, and thus our customers, will not be impacted by these shortages. Thanks to a prudent planning and procurement policy together with the selection and ordering of suitable alternative products, we have been able to stockpile appropriate quantities. As a result, it can be assured that, from today’s perspective, production will continue without interruption and will not come to a standstill for this reason. MENSHEN can consequently give the all-clear for all confirmed orders!

    Yet another example of MENSHEN’s far-sightedness and market proximity. Perhaps we can convince you of our performance capability in future as well; not only regarding our circumspect procurement of the necessary raw materials, but also where our convincing development and project work is concerned.

    We look forward to hearing from you!

    Latest Generation of High-Resolution 3D Printing

    MENSHEN now implementing the latest 3D print technology

    The option to produce prototypes, samples or even injection molds using a 3D printer has been around for some time. However, as with every new technology that is put on the market, the first generation is frequently prone to “teething troubles” and details need to be optimized.

    With this in mind, it has been worth our while to wait a bit. With the Form2 desktop printer by formlabs, MENSHEN can now produce printed models – even large-scale ones – with an excellent resolution. And the process no longer takes several days, but rather only a few hours. MENSHEN is consequently in a position to produce high-resolution prototypes and models of closures and other packaging solutions that are accurate in every detail. This can be done flexibly and at short notice, and without being dependent on other service providers.

    The resulting parts have an outstanding, smooth surface quality that resembles PP. The items can therefore be examined as regards function, design and details and, if necessary, optimized before starting batch production. And all made possible with the latest generation of 3D printers.

    Sophisticated Technology – New Injection Molding Machines

    Machine fleet at MENSHEN is expanding further

    Packaging has been part of people’s daily lives for many years. After all, no matter whether it is food, cosmetics, cleaning agents, chemicals or other everyday goods, most of the things we need would break, get lost or perish before they reached us – were it not for packaging. The closure as the “top of the pack” plays a very special role in this. Besides its most important property – namely to prevent leakage – it is an eye-catcher on the retail shelf, draws attention to the pack as a whole, and contributes significantly to the success of the product. Because requirements on the closure are so high, it is one of the most highly developed products of our time. This is a challenge that MENSHEN has been meeting for more than 45 years.

    Consequently, a closure must not only keep the pack tightly sealed, but also be easy to open and close, feel pleasant in use, and at the same time look good. This means that the manufacturing methods also have to be continuously advanced, optimized and adapted to the needs of the market.

    This is where so-called cube molds play an important role. The use of this type of tooling is a remarkably efficient alternative when producing closures made of different components, materials and/or colors. Cube molds are characterized in that they have not only one tooled surface as is the case with conventional molds. Instead, four sides of the cube are utilized for molding, with all the phases needed in the production process taking place at the same time. While the first component or color is injected at the first station, cooling is carried out at the second one, the second part of the closure is produced at the third station, and the finished parts are ejected at station 4. After that, the mold rotates and the process starts again. The cycle is very fast and thus extremely productive.

    Special machinery is called for when utilizing these cube molds; machines that meet the specific demands of this manufacturing technology. MENSHEN have now taken delivery of an injection molding machine that fulfills just these conditions. A heavy-duty crane was needed to heave this particular machine – weighing about the equivalent of 35 middle-class automobiles - from the truck prior to being transported to the designated production hall. Two further, identical machines are to follow in the second half of the year. Besides the construction of a new, additional production hall, this will be a further investment in the Finnentrop site.

    MENSHEN with new booth at the Interpack

    Almost 60 years old and still going strong: The Interpack – the world’s biggest and most significant trade show for the packaging industry

    From May 4 to 10, 2017, 2,865 exhibitors from 60 countries presented their products and services to a highly interested professional audience at the Düsseldorf exhibition center. Of the 170,500 visitors to the trade fair, 74 percent came from abroad; of these, three quarters were decision-makers.

    The motto at this year’s Interpack was “Tightly packed”, so the focus was on packing product to keep it safe and sound. This fits perfectly to us and our products – after all, we at MENSHEN provide reliable solutions that are in line with the market and meet its demands. The most frequently asked questions in our branch of industry are: “How can packs be securely closed and at the same time easy to open?” or “How can dispensing be kept simple, accurate and, above all safe and clean?”

    At the Interpack, we were able to measure up to international competition with confidence. This is because we are fast and flexible and never stop working on the optimization of our products and services. Only in this way is it possible to satisfy the constant changes in market trends and the related requirements of our customers. And of course we give the sustainability aspect high priority by dealing prudently with limited resources and keeping a sharp eye on environmental safety.

    On our new Interpack booth, all this was on display. With 160 square meters of exhibition space, it was the ideal setting for talking to existing customers and making contact to new prospects. A highly motivated, dedicated and professional team made up of staff members from the various MENSHEN locations all over the world welcomed our international visitors who were full of praise for the new trade show stand, the underlying exhibition concept and, not least, for the positive, harmonious booth team.

    Our motto for presenting our products and broad range of services was “GET READY”. These two words were also intended to express our readiness to break new ground together with our partners, to implement projects and to try out new ideas. On your marks – Ready – Go!

    The centerpiece of the booth was the “MENSHEN 360° Circuit” where visitors could obtain important facts and figures about the stages in the life of a closure and the comprehensive proposals on offer at MENSHEN – from conception to series production. As in a modern museum, interactive touch screens were provided to access key words, presentations, animations and brief movie sequences, giving visitors a vivid experience of the individual elements of the MENSHEN performance spectrum.

    Once again, this year’s Interpack definitely provided the ideal platform for us to present MENSHEN products, services and innovative spirit.

    A polite dosing system

    MENSHEN wins the SilverPack Award 2017 with one2dose

    The SilverPack “Polite Packaging” Award, initiated by the Meyer-Hentschel Institute in Saarbruecken / Zurich, has been presented this year for the ninth time. The award is conferred on packaging solutions that consistently focus on consumers as well as their needs and abilities, thus deserving the designation “Polite Packaging” – polite to users, polite to the environment and polite to the content.

    On February 7, Frank Zeppel and Stefan Wolff from MENSHEN were proud and pleased to accept the certificate during the Innoform Conference in Osnabrueck. The award-winning product is “one2dose”, the dispensing closure made by MENSHEN. The jury’s text at the prize-giving ceremony reads: “Its main strength is its ability to accurately dispense liquids and granules. The closure always releases a defined quantity of product – exactly and without mess. With washing detergent, for instance, it is no longer necessary to guess the amount or arduously read the instructions. Excessive detergent is a thing of the past and this is good for groundwater and the oceans as well. Additionally, “one2dose” enables easy dispensing with just one hand. This enhances the degree of convenience of the closure even further.”

    As of now, “one2dose” is entitled to bear the “Polite Packaging” label. A great example of the innovative spirit at MENSHEN and the high level of functionality and practicality of the closure solutions developed there

    Construction of an Additional Production Hall

    MENSHEN continue to invest in their facilities in Finnentrop, benefiting both the location and the entire Group

    The erection of the new hall will create a cohesive production complex which, on the one hand, will prevent unauthorized access and, on the other, provides the preconditions for integrating additional production facilities. Following the partial demolition of a former hall, this space is now being renovated to accommodate the Logistics, Shipping and Customs sections. Once the new hall has been erected, a modern central area for Quality Assurance will also be installed.

    The implementation of these building measures takes into account the latest construction engineering standards, including the conversion of the lighting systems to LED technology. On the whole, however, great store is being set on ensuring that as much daylight as possible can enter the hall.

    Initiative "Zero Pellet Loss"

    MENSHEN certified in the name of environmental protection

    All over the world, associations and plastics processing companies are participating in the “Zero Pellet Loss” initiative to prevent plastic pellets from getting lost along the supply chain. Studies on the issue of plastic waste have shown that even small quantities of plastic resin get into the water system, thus reaching the oceans where - together with numerous other elements - they lead to enormous accumulations of waste, known as marine litter. The amount of marine litter is currently estimated at 100 million tons and a large part of it is plastic. The plastics associations worldwide have assumed responsibility in this respect and are appealing to plastics processing companies to take part in the “Zero Pellet Loss” initiative. MENSHEN are participating in this initiative as a matter of course and can confirm in the form of a self-declaration that

    ·         the necessary technical and organizational conditions are in place to prevent plastic pellet spills and ensure that, even if granules are spilled, they cannot reach the environment; 

    ·         employees are trained to avoid spills of plastic granules and, if necessary, to effectively remedy them;

    ·          the effectiveness of these measures is reviewed on a regular basis.

    Our Trainees’ Outing

    Lots of new impressions for our apprentices

    The annual trainee outing has meanwhile become a fixed event at MENSHEN. This year, the excursion first went to the "Phenomenta" in Lüdenscheid where interesting - and some amazing - experiments and other physics-related phenomena were carried out. Following a visit to the technology center, the trainees then went on an extensive tour of the Kostal factory. After that, a hearty meal was waiting at the Willecke country inn in Sundern-Stockum, where the eventful tour ended. As in the years before, it was an awesome, varied outing.

    Dr. Matthias Heider (MP) visits MENSHEN in Finnentrop

    The CDU Member of Parliament for the Borough of Olpe and southern Märkischer Kreis was a guest at Georg MENSHEN GmbH & Co. KG

    Dr. Matthias Heider (Member of Parliament) recently paid a visit to MENSHEN, makers of plastic closures and system packaging, in Finnentrop. Following a brief round of introductions, the Managing Director Ludger Braukmann presented facts and figures about MENSHEN’s products and target markets. Thanks to his former activities in the chemicals sector and in the packaging recycling industry, Dr. Heider was already well informed on the subject of packaging. In the further course of conversation, other important topics included the provision with raw materials and energy. Stable energy prices and a reliable supply of raw materials for producing plastics are essential to ensure that we remain competitive and to safeguard the MENSHEN locations in Germany. 

    Dr. Matthias Heider showed great interest in the Company and in the general economic situation. The demographic change and its effects on MENSHEN and on other enterprises with a similar structure were also topics of discussion.  As Ludger Braukmann pointed out, “Due to demographic change, it is becoming more and more difficult to get qualified specialist craftspeople; and it is also increasingly problematic to find suitable trainees”. MENSHEN is faced with tough challenges that need to be met and dealt with by taking appropriate action. It is absolutely essential for MENSHEN to be viewed in a positive light, especially as an employer brand. In this context, several schools in the area were visited this year and a variety of job fairs in the region were actively used as an exhibition platform.

    Following the highly interesting round of discussions, the guest enjoyed an in-depth tour of the Company. Dr. Heider was evidently impressed by our modern machine fleet and production department. This visit by a member of parliament was an excellent opportunity for both parties to exchange views as well as being an important step towards the future.
