Partnership creates new capability


Brand owners and suppliers in Southeast Asia will now have access to state-of-the-art polyethylene terephthalate (PET) package evaluation services thanks to the Hemetek Partnership.

The new capability, is a result of a partnership between Plastic Technologies, Inc. (PTI) and Hemetek Techno Instruments, Mumbai. An open house is planned for January 20th, after which the facility will be accepting bottle performance projects.

“For the past 30 years, PTI has earned a global reputation as the leader in PET bottle development and performance testing. Through our new partnership with Hemetek, a company that has established itself as a respected package testing solutions provider, we are now able to bring these services to Southeast Asia,” said Greg Fisher, director, global analytical labs, PTI.
