Scalable chemical production operations
Our production operations are scalable so we can grow with your requirements. We’ll do small production runs of 1, if you’re really testing the waters.
And once you’re confident and you’ve had strong responses from your market, we can set you up with large, repeat production runs if that’s where you’re headed. This is one of the reasons our small to medium customers start - and continue to work with us.
Filling and Packaging
Once the liquid product is either formulated at our plant or delivered to us, we can fill and pack the product into various sizes and types of packaging.
The smallest container we can currently fill is 50mL, ranging up to 1,000L IBC’s (Intermediate Bulk Containers). We use automated and semi-automatic filling lines, capping, labelling, packing and batch coding equipment to suit your production run sizes and volumes.
Flexible packaging options
We stock a wide range of ‘off the shelf’ packaging that can easily be implemented into the supply and production of your product. Alternatively we can also help you with the design and supply of a wide variety of packaging combinations to tailor suit your needs. Alternatively you may already know your requirements or have a supplier in mind. Chem Pack is willing to work with your requirements at which ever level you choose.
- Off-the-shelf stock lines
- Outsourced supply
- Supply your own packaging ready to fill/pack
Labelling and Packing
Our labelling machines can apply self-adhesive labels to both sides of a straight or curved bottle - or apply a complete wraparound label on a cylindrical shaped bottle.
We have inline inkjet printers to automatically apply a batch number and or a date of manufacture to meet your requirements.
We have automatic case packers, carton tapers and carton coding equipment to suit your requirements.
A shrink tunnel for smaller bottles or bundle packing containers is also available.
Quality assurance is paramount to our values at Chem Pack. Every step of the process is checked and validated by our team to ensure your products meet specification.
Chem Pack operates its own on site laboratories, employing qualified industrial chemists to facilitate daily routine testing and analysis. Our labs are fully equipped containing both GC and HPLC instruments for analytical testing of finished goods and technical ingredients. We also perform many intermediate quality checks along every step of the way.
Chem Pack maintains a retention sample policy and results safely secured, should a problem ever arise.
We follow strict processes to prevent cross-contamination:
- Segregated buildings
- Dedicated equipment
- Strong hygiene procedures
- Careful and experienced staff

As NPD & Sourcing Manager at Waproo from 2011 - 2018, I had the pleasure to work with Chem Pack on multiple projects. These included creating new formulations in the waterproofing, cleaning, pet grooming and insecticidal categories.
Working very closely with their sales and technical teams, Chem Pack always provided a service that was over and above what was expected of a supplier. I found Chem Pack to be an innovative and progressive organisation and this was evident by their investments in various new plant and equipment to streamline and improve productivity.
Chem Pack’s ability to react quickly to situations that required immediate attention (on multiple occasions) was a huge help and very much appreciated. I thoroughly recommend Chem Pack.
