Starpack Industry Awards 2015 winners - Personal Awards
Packaging Development Team of the Year
SprayPET Development Team, Plastipak Packaging
“It was a difficult choice, but the unanimous agreement was to award Plastipak as the Development Team of the Year: Whilst working in very difficult conditions, through company changes, the team developed a technically unique aerosol solution with a new material making it the only plastic aerosol that will be compliant with new dispensing directives coming in next year”.
Shooting Star Award
Kate Sadler, Apprentice Mechanical Engineer, Pulse Flexible Packaging
"We choose Katie Sadler from Pulse Packaging to be our Shooting Star in this year’s competition, for several reasons. Katie is only an apprentice, yet has already progressed to the level of input as if a full-time engineer. Katie, an apprentice, is training others in certain systems. Katie is making this progress in the predominantly male-environment of engineers – making success even more hard-won.”
