Flexible tubes

AAPI has state-of-the-art machinery to create exactly the tubes you require. We can manufacture and decorate up to a huge number of tubes a week whilst continuing to achieve ever more demanding quality standards.

Flexibility is also an important factor and production resources which have been fine-tuned for mass production and are also adaptable to short runs. AAPI prides itself on its flexibility and customer service to ensure we supply the products you need on time and on budget.

We offer tubes in any color, white or transparent plus an extensive range of special effects. The company also offers a complete decoration service that includes flexographic and silkscreen printing, labelling and hot foil blocking enabling product


differentiation with a virtually unlimited combination of effects. Standard screw caps and Snap-On dispensing closures are available to suit all sizes of tubes.

AAPI is constantly developing its tube product portfolio by creating new designs and new models, to improve customer choice. In addition we can arrange specialist closures via one of our approved suppliers coordinated through our Customer Service Managers who can schedule production of the whole project to ensure deadlines are met.
