Cost-efficient PET line for Turkish spring water
Company Abant Su has risen to become one of the leading mineral water bottling plants in Turkey with pure spring water from Lake Abant. In order that it can continue to expand and be among the top three suppliers in the medium to long term, the water bottler has opted for modern technology, service and experience from KHS.
Idyllically situated in a nature park and surrounded by mountains, pine and spruce, Lake Abant in Turkey lies between the Bosporus and the capital of Ankara. Its spring water is of outstanding quality and great purity and has a mild taste and a very low sodium content. Turkish company Abant Su, part of Kaya Holding, has been successfully marketing the spring water under the Abant label since 2008. In order to become one of the top three suppliers in Turkey and the Middle East in the medium to long term, the mineral water bottler is constantly expanding its production facilities. In 2015 it opened a second production site in Gölcük on the Sea of Marmara east of Istanbul. The company has now taken delivery of a line for still water built by KHS, for, says Kaya Holding CEO Burak Kaya, “We believe that the packaging quality and efficiency of our production lines are just as important as the purity and taste of our product.”
