Specialists in our field

IAC uses multi-stage transfer presses and highly developed techniques to accurately manufacture deep drawn, complex anodised aluminium components.

A large amount of our work is focused on producing anodised ferrules and cans for medical inhalers and we work closely with clients to ensure that we comply with correct regulatory compliance regarding the manufacture of these items. The pharmaceutical industry is highly regulated and IAC has extensive experience and knowledge regarding the requirements for validating its products. We work closely with our customers to draw up protocols to ensure a consistent level of process and product. We develop and test our products strictly to the agreed protocols to ensure a high level of quality and confidence. Our portfolio also includes the manufacture of sheath actuators, shrouds, collars, screw ferrules for personal care pumps, lipstick sleeves and caps for mascara, all of which are the finishing touches for personal care packaging. Our design-led approach and knowledge, coupled with our leading technology, enables us to manufacture stylish yet versatile pressed and anodised aluminium components in a variety of colours and finishes for the cosmetic market. We are proud to be in association with high end brands such as Estée Lauder, Avon and L’Oréal and are proud of our strong relationship with many of the major names in the global personal care and cosmetic market. In our on-site colour matching laboratory we stock a wide range of standard colours and can also develop bespoke colours to individual customer requirements. Throughout the colour range we can offer one of four finishes on our anodised aluminium products; bright, silk, satin and matt. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide colour and finish accuracy, irrespective of quantities, offering a flexible approach throughout the product range. We continuously invest in our anodising technology to ensure rack anodising process lines are capable of delivering consistently high levels of quality and producing anodised aluminium components.

Sustainability

IAC Ltd is committed to meeting the strict guidelines outlined in the environmental management standard, ISO14001.

We endeavour to minimise how our processes and operations impact on the immediate and wider environment and we strive to continually comply with current legislation.

  • IAC Ltd has introduced a system of accurately monitoring energy to improve how we measure our energy consumption. We use this information to devise plans to reduce out output and become cleaner and greener
  • We have created a new loading and unloading area for the safer and more efficient handling of chemicals
  • We have in place plans to reduce air and noise emissions from the site

Our History

IAC Ltd was formed in 2007 following the purchase of the company by Bespak (Consort Medical), one of the world’s leading suppliers of drug delivery devices for injectable and inhaled products.

With sound financial backing, IAC Ltd was able to build on its three decades of experience in the sector to secure its position as one of the leading designers, producers and distributors of rack anodised aluminium products for the pharmaceutical, personal care and cosmetic industries. Over the past 33 years, IAC Ltd has formed strong partnerships with many of the major players in the pharmaceutical, personal care and cosmetic industries, including the Aptar Group, MWV Group and Heitkamp & Thumann Group. IAC’s strategy is to continue to develop its position in the pharmaceutical, personal care and cosmetic markets and remain focused on providing excellent service and innovation to customers in these areas. We also continue to use our knowledge and expertise to discuss potential solutions with customers from other sectors.
