KHS Group

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 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 which 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 many 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 and always guided by 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; today we provide reliable filling and packaging systems for glass and PET bottles, cans and kegs for breweries of all sizes worldwide. Our latest development in efficient beer filling in glass bottles cuts CO2 consumption in the filling process by up to 50%.
  • We have been successfully working on pioneering systems for PET for over 40 years, focusing on finding the ideal properties for plastic containers and a manufacturing process which saves on materials and energy. With its Beyond Juice bottle concept, for instance, KHS has developed the first container made of 100% recycled PET with a barrier which can also be collected by type and fully returned to the bottle-to-bottle recycling loop. Furthermore, our Nature MultiPack is a packaging system which saves over 80% in plastic as dots of adhesive hold the bottles together as a pack, therefore completely doing away with the need for secondary film packaging.
  • Light containers are our specialty: in the future water market and the soft drinks segment we are continuously striving to produce bottles with an extremely low weight, where possible made from recycled and recyclable materials. Combined with high product safety and efficient transportation we reliably support our customers’ aim to be part of a circular economy.
  • 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 our demands are accordingly 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 commitment ensures that KHS systems and solutions are above all reliable and future proof both today and tomorrow. KHS – your reliable partner.
