Contital is a completely integrated company, from the design of the product up to its realization and distribution to the clients. Upon request, the company can provide a customized secondary packaging, according to customer needs.

Containers can also be customized by embossing or flexo printing.

The distribution and warehouse management activities are optimized thanks to a new 3000 sqm structure and the most recent inventory planning systems, reducing storage times to a minimum.

R&D | It means Innovation Investments in research and development activities allowed the creation of innovative and patented product lines, including Happy Day (semi-smoothwall ®

containers) and the Bake-eeze system.

The Happy Day range The Happy Day line, winner of the prestigious Alufoil Trophy in 2017, represents a double innovation: it is a rigid, reusable and recyclable container, made with a patented cold-stamping technique instead of the classic turning. The smooth edges give the products non-stick properties. Moreover, characteristics of the container also represent an advantage in terms of reduction of raw material used and emissions into the atmosphere.

The Bake-eeze® system ®

Bake-eeze is an innovative patented system to manufacture aluminium non-stick containers. It has been developed to meet all the needs of industrial bakery and pastry companies, solving the problem of the baked food becoming stuck to the container after cooking. The non-stick properties are given by a vegetable lubricant with a food-grade additive approved in Europe; it is absolutely natural and compliant to all regulations about food-contact. The solution reduces the production costs and time in food industries.
