Offering a beautiful range of dispensing solutions comes naturally to the Berlin Packaging UK team. We have been combining dispensing pumps with bottles since 1994. We aim to make your brand look stylish, timeless and modern. Pulling together dispensing pumps and making them work with bottle sizes, depends on a few factors. The two main options that need to be taken into consideration will be the height and width of the bottle. Sometimes the bottleneck width is correct, however, this won’t always match the height; the dispensing pump may sit too high on the bottle.
This is where our experienced account managers come into play. They have an exceptional understanding of what pump works – with what bottleneck size and style.

Once you get the idea of matching the bottleneck size to the pump neck size, it becomes a pretty easy process. Furthermore, you will still need to test the dispensing pump with the bottleneck size. There may be some issues with regard to size or the way it looks from a design perspective. It’s good to order several variables and work out which one works best for you.
Pump to Bottle
Depending on the bottle design you choose, the final pump design and size need to work with the final aesthetics of the product. A large dispensing pump won’t work with a small bottle. It will be top-heavy and could cause several problems, therefore, testing is important.
For each bottle and pump on the website, we do offer a filter or a link that points back to the range of matching options. This should make it easy for everyone to find the correct samples to order.
Once you have decided on the final combination, just give one of our team members a call and we can sort out pricing, product decoration and filing options.
Depending on the dispensing pump you require, remember to check out the actual dosage that will be dispensed. You can source a high to low dosage depending on the product viscosity, bottle size and application. This will need testing and you may need to change several variables yourself; depending on if you decide on a particular dispensing pump style.
The final decision on closure style will also depend on the dispensing pump you require. Some pumps have more options than others. We do have a good selection to choose from, with this we have composed a few design ideas for you.
- Ribbed – Modern/timeless
- Embossed – Premium/vintage
- Smooth – Classic/essential
- Metal Sheath – High-end luxury/premium.
