Production Facilities

After only four years at their original Broadway Drive premises, the company has had to relocate to a bigger site in order to satisfy growing customer demand - a move that's as ambitious as the company itself.

Situated on the outskirts of Halesworth in Suffolk, the new unobtrusive 17.4 acre bespoke plant is sympathetically set within trees and fields with excellent road access and parking. However, its only when you arrive and turn into the big double gates past the large man-made pond, that the true impact of the new site can be seen.

The new site can easily satisfy up to 100m units per annum including up to 20m closures. In addition, Spectra's decorating facilty can produce up to 15m products per annum as well. This capacity can be maintained by a number of large easily accessible open areas used for both manufacturing and storage. In addition, there is also a large reinforced room which houses valuable product moulds.

The new site has expansion written all over it, with plenty of surrounding land for additional facilities. It's easy to see that future growth is very much at the heart of Spectra's long-term plans further illustrating an ambitious intent.

Extrusion Blow Moulding

Our production line of 0.5 litre 2 x 1 machines customised to our requirements are all standardised to give maximum manufacturing flexibility. Machines are all electric, eliminating the risk of oil contamination. Plant currently installed and on order will give Spectra a capacity of 40 million units per annum.

Sizes 25 - 500 ml can be produced in HDPE, PP and PETG. A growing range of standard shapes/designs are offered with an in-house tooling capability for custom designs.

Co-Extrusion to produce 2-layer packs will be available soon.

Injection Stretch Blow Moulding

A new production line of injection stretch blow moulding machines was installed in the summer of 2008. These standardised machines will mould PET in sizes from 25 - 500 ml. PET gives near-glass clarity and high strength for improved product presentation and is also more readily recycled.

As with our blow moulding containers we are able to offer a range of standard shapes and designs as well as having the capability to produce custom moulds.

Injection Moulding

To complement their standard range of containers, Spectra also supplies innovative quality closures which provide their customers with that total packaging solution.

The range is continuously under review. New products are added regularly as developed by our designers in response to customer demand. In addition we can manage the production of custom designs efficiently, economically and in confidence.

Spectra Packaging has ISO 9001-2008 certification.
