There’s a lot more to closure linings than you might think

Your customers only see a cap or lid, but we see an absolutely critical factor in the success of your businesses. Effective closure linings not only prevent leaks, they can also provide tamper evidence, protect flavour, extend shelf-life, and improve sustainability. Wadding Solutions design, test and manufacture closure linings for all kinds of products that rely on packaging to seal the deal.

Our state-of-the-art facility in Auckland has a range of automated lining machines capable of processing your caps with the highest accuracy and quality available, allowing us to handle large consignments quickly and cost-effectively.







Experience and capability
make the difference

Since 1999 when Richard Watson established Wadding Solutions we’ve grown to become the go to people in Australasia for closure linings. Large scale enterprises to boutique specialty brands located throughout New Zealand and Australia work with us to find and implement the best solutions to their requirements. It all comes down to our unique range of capabilities. In other words, if you want it, we can probably do it. And we’ll make sure it’s absolutely the right solution for your product. Full-scale production is not the time to discover issues with your closure linings.

Testing is crucial to achieving the best results and ensuring any issues are sorted out before production starts. It gives you confidence, and also saves time and money. We have our own cleanroom and testing facility where we can test different liner options to find the optimal closure lining for your product. We can also cut small runs in different shapes and sizes, so you and your filling partners can run your own tests prior to going to full-scale production.

Get the assurance of ISO 9001
and HACCP compliance

You can be certain that Wadding Solutions meets or exceeds best practice in all aspects of our testing and manufacturing processes. We are compliant with ISO 9001: 2015 for food safety, certified by Telarc Ltd, and we use the internationally recognised HACCP system to ensure everything we produce is safe for contact with food. All caps are checked and leave our facility with a quality guarantee.

Traceability is key to many of our clients. We research, document and certify all material we import so you’ll have full visibility of their environmental and sustainability credentials all the way back to the source.

Enhance the sustainability
of your business

It’s amazing what a big difference something as little as a closure lining can make. Apart from protecting your product they can also help protect the environment.
With a strong seal you can specify thinner, lighter plastics – so less plastic ends up in landfills. Lighter packaging also means lower handling and transport costs, which helps minimise your carbon footprint. That adds up to a great story – and one your customers want to hear.

We walk the talk at Wadding Solutions too. We’re committed to finding new and better ways to make our own business more sustainable. Right now, the most meaningful way we can do that is by improving our recycling and waste management practices. Already we recycle 100% of our EPE foam scrap and we’re continually looking for opportunities to make Wadding Solutions the most sustainable and environmentally responsible business it can be.
