Mission statement

Sustainable turnkey systems for the beverage industry

For over 150 years KHS has aspired to be a reliable partner for sustainable, efficient and durable filling and packaging systems and solutions. In this capacity we find it important to offer our customers in the beverage and liquid food industries technology of the highest quality – not only at specific intervals but also to maintain long-term partnerships, during which we are always at their side. For we are distinguished by our extensive service concept and worldwide network presence that enables us to be on site very quickly indeed. We also continuously subject our products to further development. This allows us to always provide our customers and partners with intelligent systems and solutions which help them to persistently increase their added value in the production process. Together with them we aim to make long-term economy and sustainability a composite part of our entrepreneurial processes both now and in the future.

We stand for long-term relations with our customers: many of our partnerships have already lasted several decades. This applies on an international scale: there is a KHS system in practically every country of the world and for each single location we observe the same high requirements. We are targeted and geared to the future – always in line with the needs of our customers.

Our expertise and success speak for themselves: they best demonstrate how strongly we are oriented towards future viability and sustainability. A few examples illustrate this.

  • Our expertise in beer filling is of the first hour; we provide reliable filling and packaging systems for glass and PET bottles, cans and kegs for breweries of all sizes worldwide. One good example of this is our Innofill Glass DRS ECO filling system that can be used for low-oxygen filling at a considerably reduced CO2 consumption of up to 60%.
  • We have been successfully working on pioneering systems for PET for over 45 years, focusing on finding the ideal properties for plastic containers and a manufacturing process that saves on materials and energy. Our latest-generation stretch blow molder, the InnoPET Blomax V, demonstrates how we can propel our recipe for success to even greater heights. Thanks to the innovative Double Gate heating concept (DoGa), up to 40% in energy can be saved over its predecessor model.
  • Our holistic KHS Loop LITE packaging concept is also something of a pioneer. The extremely light, circular 0.5-liter [r]PET bottle with a recyclable barrier for highly carbonated beverages combines numerous ecological and economic benefits in a single container. This can also be used in our unique Nature MultiPack system that does away entirely with secondary film packaging by using dots of adhesive instead, plus caps that are firmly affixed to the bottle (tethered caps).
  • Our system solutions are becoming more and more intelligent and autonomous. Whether modern management systems for complete production processes or individual service products which optimize and modernize existing machinery, we offer a full range of digital products which, individually or together with other solutions, help to increase the amount of added value through the system’s entire life cycle.

In order to achieve successes like the above, it goes without saying that accordingly our demands are high. We at KHS not only make such demands of our products and services but also of ourselves. KHS critically examines its own processes and expects all those involved therein to adhere to a number of important values. In this way we provide excellent business processes and shoulder our responsibility to our more than 5,000 employees. This obligation ensures that KHS systems and solutions are above all reliable and future-proof both today and tomorrow. KHS – your reliable partner.
