in partnership with Borealis

About us

Creating opportunities through innovation 

We help our manufacturing and brand partners improve the products and packaging they make and provide for consumers.


At the heart of Bockatech is a commitment to research and development — creating practical solutions to key industry challenges such as lightweighting and sustainability.


The rights to these solutions are comprehensively protected and vigorously defended to ensure exclusivity and safeguard our partner's licensing investments.


We also make it easy for our partners to use our technology by supporting them with the expertise they need to put our ideas into practice quickly and effectively.

Chris and Peter first started working together over ten years ago, successfully protecting and commercialising foam plastic innovations.


Bockatech was formed four years ago to take EcoCore® to market. Since then it has received significant financial and development backing from leading polyolefin producer Borealis as well as funding from private investors.

EcoCore® can already been found in applications that are in use, or under trial, by well known organisations across many different sectors — from Waitrose to The NHS and Hay Festival.
