At the beginning of this year, we launched a new dispenser insert at Dijkstra Plastics. This new type of insert can be used in many of our lids. As a result, in addition to current applications such as paint, sauce or other contents, hygienic and industrial wipes can now also be packed in our buckets. With this insert, the wipes can be pulled out of the bucket easily. By developing a square insert (in the shape of a tub), more space was created to fold back the cloth that sticks out of the insert. The square container could then be closed airtight again to prevent dehydration of the wipes. And by working together with users, we have developed a new bucket in which the wipes can be taken out of the bucket easily with one hand. We offer the dispenser insert in two variants; a cross shape or a drop shape inside the insert. This makes application suitable for different types and thicknesses of fabrics.

Because this insert can be used on a wide range of our range of buckets, we can also offer proven good buckets to you. In addition to the solution for wipes, the bucket can be equipped with various handles and also with an IML. With an IML (In Mould Label), your bucket is provided with a scratch-resistant and full-color print which makes this your perfect bucket!
New bucket: 2.2 ECP
In addition to the inserts that have already been implemented, we now also have a new bucket that is completely aimed at this market. The newly developed bucket is called the 2.2 ECP and is a narrow high pot that is extremely suitable for hygienic or industrial wipes. This 2.2-liter bucket can also be equipped with a dispenser insert, so that it can easily be taken on the work floor.

PCR: 100% Recycled Plastic
We are very aware of our great responsibility for production of plastic packaging products. That is why we take measures to keep the impact of our packaging on the living environment as responsible as possible.
Injection moulding explained
With a range of 0.3 to 61 liter packaging, we offer a wide range of packaging in various forms such as round, rectangular and square. In addition to these standard solutions, we also offer tailor-made solutions.
In addition to the fact that traceability in the food industry is mandatory, it is also important in other production chains to follow where raw materials come from. This certainly also applies to our packaging containers.
Sustainable Alfix packaging
Since the year 2000, Alfix, producer of tile adhesives and more, has been proactively minimizing its impact on the environment for both production and their products. But the packaging in which the products are packed must also be sustainable, according to the company in Kolding.
New: More energy efficient injection moulding machine
Last week we welcomed our new BMB injection moulding machine to our machinery. After assembling and preparing in Italy, everything is now being prepared to reinforce and modernise our current machinery in Haaksbergen.
BRC AA status again awarded to Dijkstra Plastics
Subsequent to our recent audit, which was carried out in line with the BRC Packaging Standard, we have once again been awarded the highest attainable AA status for both our locations, at Almelo and Haaksbergen. We’re extremely proud to announce this news, and are very much looking forward to when circumstances in relation to the coronavirus once again permit us to welcome visitors to our wonderful factories.
Day 5: The future of packaging
We all know a dramatic shift must take place in the world due to the climate issue. In 30 years’ time we will no longer be using crude oil as the basis for plastic packaging. Remy is telling us more about the future of packaging industries.
Day 4: Endless possibilities In Mould Labelling Technology
Today Joram is telling us more about In-Mould Labeling Technology (IML). What does IML stand for, how is it made and what are the solutions within IML?
The British Retail Consortium (BRC)introduced this certification programme in 1998. The programme focuses on food safety and quality within an organisation. A company is tested on more than 300 aspects to check to what extent it meets the standard that is set. A rating indicates to what degree a company complies with the GSFI-recognised standard of the BRC.
Aspects such as traceability, cleanliness, operational control, training and management of suppliers are included, which together form the basis of the BRC. Thanks to the name that the BRC has built up, it has been a reputable name in the world of certification programmes for years and we are proud to be able to show our results within this programme.
The FSSC 22000 Standard has been created through Stichting Certificatie Voedselveiligheid (SCV). As a food-oriented version of the ISO 22000 Standard, this certification programme has been set up as a global guideline in food safety and quality within various industries. This standard is aimed at the entire production chain and as such, it is ideally suited for international harmonisation, partly thanks to the recognition by the GFSI. In addition to its connection with ISO 22000, the FSSC 22000 has many comparisons with the HACCP criteria, making it an attractive variant with the best of both worlds from these programmes. Thanks to the internationally accepted nature of the FSSC and the chain-wide approach within this certification programme, we recognise a strong food safety management system in this standard.
