Integrated Plastics is the original developer and global leader in the design and delivery of IMH™ Bottles and IMH™ Preforms (IMH: Integrally Moulded Handle).
The company understood the Environmental need, consumer demand and increasing governmental pressure that required an environmentally sustainable product that not only competes with but removes the need for all existing non recyclable and semi recyclable packaging from the food and beverage sector. In a partnership with Tru Blu Beverages Australia, Integrated Plastics developed a solution to satisfy that demand. Integrated Plastics teamed up with the worlds leading machine and mould manufacturers to optimize the IMH™ Bottle program. Optimisation of preforms and bottle design are done to ensure maximum gains in material efficiency and reduction in cost due to unnecessary waste.
2008 the company launched the worlds first 4ltr IMH™ PET Bottle followed a 1ltr IMH™ Bottle and 2ltr IMH Bottle for Fruit Cordial Concentrates and Long Life Juice. After 10 year period of constant improvement, prototyping and refinement it is ensured that the Integrally Moulded Handle (IMH) Bottle is now a feature on the shelves of all major beverage retailers in Australia.
