More about Mark
Mark specialises in plastic easy-open, tamper-evident, child-resistant dispensing closures for the packaging industry. He has not only designed, developed, patented and sold products but has also had his inventions taken up by major packaging producers, via licensing agreements, in the UK, USA and recently Japan.
Compgens' and Plasgens' successful cap and closure packaging technologies are called 'Squeezeopen T' (a new form of easy to open container. It is senior-friendly because it involves applying only gentle pressure to the lid to open it, while closing the container, by simply lightly pressing the lid to seal it, is equally as stress-free) ideal for the food, toiletry, cosmetic and pharmaceutical markets and 'POPITM' (a new novel confectionery, snack and healthcare pack) has many cost and functional benefits.
