Europe: Lightweight Containers opens production line in Germany

Lightweight Containers is opening a new production plant in Grossbreitenbach, Germany.

The fully automated production line has a capacity of 400 KeyKeg Slimlines per hour and will be operational in the third quarter of this year.

The line can produce all the members of the KeyKeg Slimline family of kegs.

PET-Verpackungen Deutschland is the production partner and will manage the day-to-day production.

The new production capacity will ensure that Lightweight Containers can meet the region’s sharply rising demand for the next few years.

“This new location and the extra capacity will reduce both delivery times and transport distances even more,” says Anita Veenendaal, chief commercial officer.

“In the last six years, our sales have grown more than 40% each year, and we’re seeing accelerated growth in the demand for our kegs almost everywhere in the world we serve.”
