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.

Measures around the COVID-19 virus
In recent weeks, the number of infections with the COVID-19 (Corona) virus has increased significantly throughout the world. Dijkstra Plastics has prepared itself to map and mitigate the consequences of an outbreak for our organization. Within the organization, a team has been set up to monitor developments on a daily basis and take relevant measures.
New website: Dijkstra Plastics has decided to renew its online presence and to further intensify it
Since the acquisition of HK Plastics in 2016, two separate websites have been kept online: both the Dijkstra Plastics website and the HK Plastics website. In the beginning, this was important to guarantee the continuity of receiving and welcoming visitors. Later on, however, with the further integration of the two companies, it was decided to work towards a single website.
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.
