Photo-realistic print

M&H now has new print technology offering photo-realistic print directly only tubes. These tubes demonstrate the detail and tonal values which are achievable.

Flexible tubes

M&H has state-of-the-art machinery to create exactly the tubes you require. We can manufacture and decorate up to a million 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. M&H 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 colour, 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.

M&H 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.
