Vaping is taking the world by storm. Originally intended to help smokers give up the smoking habit, by simulating the sensation and taste of smoking without the harmful chemicals and side effects, the world of vaping has quickly found a much larger demographic thanks to the huge range of flavours now on the market. The practice is so common that the Oxford English Dictionaries named ‘Vape’ as their word of 2014. The word was twice as used in 2014 as it was the previous year (source: Yahoo! Finance), and with many companies supplying a growing customer base, it is not hard to see why.
In the past two years, more than two million people in the UK have started vaping – with 2013’s sales estimated at £200million: a fourfold increase on the figures for 2012. The eCigarette market is growing fast, with over 400 brands in circulation across the world (source: The Guardian), and customers are always on the lookout for new vapours and new qualities. Here at ACO Packaging, we have the machinery that allows you to deliver them.
We supply eLiquid filling machines in both semi-automatic and fully automatic, giving you the choice of machine to suit your individual circumstances. For small runs and start-up companies, a semi-automatic filler gives you the packaging power you need to get your product onto the market. These machines are highly affordable, meaning you don’t have to invest a huge amount of capital to get up and running, and their small size means that finding space to set up production won’t be a problem. We have machinery that can help you fill bottles, cap them, and apply labels, enabling you to produce up to 600 finished bottles per hour.
With a fully automatic bottler every stage of the filling and packaging process is taken care of for you. The machine will feed, fill, and cap up to 2000 Bph, allowing you to produce large scale runs to deal with big orders and to meet the demands of larger retailers, giving you greater exposure and growing your revenue. You won’t need to worry about anything halting production for long, as our aftercare service provides you with machine servicing and spare parts from our highly skilled engineers.
With e-liquid available in a huge number of flavours, including cola, menthol, cupcake and pineapple, there is clearly potential for the market to cater to every taste. Not only are customers looking for new and unusual vapours (perhaps their favourite dessert or drink), they are also looking for the best quality flavours. So whether you plan to produce something completely new, or simply supply people with the finest vaping vanilla they’ve ever tasted, there’s a gap in the market ready to be exploited.
