H&K Müller is an injection moulding manufacturer specialising in the development, production and decoration of sustainable plastic packaging, jars and containers. During the new construction of the company location, the focus was on the topics of "environmental protection" and "resource conservation". Thus, all suitable roof surfaces on an area of 2800 m² were equipped with photovoltaic modules with an output of over 420 kWp. This enables approx. 15 % of H&K Müller's total electricity requirements to be covered. Thanks to modern heat recovery, the entire production facility is heated with waste heat from production. In addition, particularly efficient and energy-saving all-electric injection moulding machines are used in injection moulding production. All production facilities are continuously monitored by an energy monitoring system using measuring points. With the DIN EN ISO 50001 energy management certification, H&K Müller guarantees a permanent and consistent review of the energy processes and, due to these measures, achieves an average emission saving of 200.6 t CO2 per year.
H&K Müller's sustainable packaging and plastic jars meet the highest requirements in terms of UV protection, migration and impermeability and are mainly used for the packaging, storage and transport of products and media that have a long storage or retention time at the respective end user.
As early as the packaging development stage, care is taken to ensure that only as much raw material is used as is necessary for the respective purpose of the packaging. Through continuous research and further development of injection moulding technology, it is now possible to realise the thinnest wall thicknesses with consistently high packaging properties.
The injection moulding tools required for plastic injection moulding are manufactured entirely at H&K Müller in Engelskirchen, which ensures that the tools have a long service life.
H&K Müller's plastic containers and packaging are all manufactured in the DIN EN ISO 22000 food safety certified production facility in Engelskirchen. Environmentally friendly and sustainable packaging is produced from biologically based as well as biodegradable materials and recycled plastics.
Upon customer request, almost all containers and packaging can be decorated with an individual screen print. This variant of packaging finishing is significantly more environmentally friendly than labelling, as the printing ink is easier to process in the recycling process than a multi-coated paper or film label.
Thanks to the central location of H&K Müller's production facility, which is situated directly on Autobahn 4 near Cologne, customers throughout Germany can be supplied flexibly by means of a short supply chain.
