Where breweries like Molson Coors’ Canadian facilities were once a fixed feature of inner cities, today more and more companies are abandoning their confined urban premises in favour of the surrounding countryside.
Here, they have room for expansion – and for new, highly flexible filling and packaging technology from KHS.
What’s crucial for a beverage bottler who wants to create totally new production capacities out in the countryside is state-of-the-art technology and a reliable partner that can be fully depended on during installation, commissioning and day-to-day operation.
It was thus good that, in opting for KHS, the brewery had a partner at its side that has been trusted for many years. Because of the long-term partnership, it is only logical that the brewery has now procured three lines from the systems supplier.
The heart of the setup is the Innofill Can DVD, a can filler that is used for a capacity of up to 72,000 cans per hour. It can fill containers holding between 236 to 473 millilitres, whether these be of a slim, sleek or standard format. Molson Coors has also invested in a KHS glass line and a keg line.
