Collcap is a market-leading primary packaging supplier, providing standard and bespoke solutions to global brands in the cosmetics, fragrance and skincare sectors.
Formed in 1993 by managing director John McDermott, Collcap started out as a small company with a focus on providing caps and closures. While this is still an integral part of its business offering, Collcap rapidly expanded to develop expertise in a variety of packs in order to fulfil the essential requirements of beauty brands and fillers - and more.
A truly global sourcing network, a wealth of technical experience and design know-how, and a dedicated team providing excellence in quality and service have led to continued growth by Collcap over the years.

The latest rapid prototyping technology gives Collcap customers an advantage in the fast-paced cosmetics industry, offering the potential to substantially reduce lead times and costs. Collcap's 3D models are weighted, coloured and sprayed, giving you a true feel for your product before production tooling, and are available within 72 hours of receipt of CAD drawings.
The technology gives customers the chance to hold a model of their product without tooling costs and the long wait for sample creation as well as the potential to substantially reduce project lead times. Models can be weighted, coloured and sprayed to give customers a true feel for their product before production tooling.
2015 saw a relocation to new offices as part of the company's growth strategy. An enhanced office space and technical facilities form the majority of the new premises, to accommodate Collcap's increased capabilities.
Collcap's UK headquarters operates closely with well-established teams in Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Taiwan, alongside offices in France and the US, generating further opportunities for Collcap's growth in Europe and the Americas. After increasing business by 40% in just four years, the move was required to accommodate the growing team size and expansion in services, and creates scope for further growth as the company goes from strength to strength.
Collcap's ability to hold ordered items in stock for rapid turnaround for customers is also aided by the upgrade, which includes new warehouse facilities in addition to office space.
