Each product development begins with an idea - this also applies to individual PET bottles that are designed to meet the requirements of their content. Frequently, however, the concepts and requirements are vague: for example, the bottle design is to accommodate the "look & feel" of the target group; the brand message must be conveyed as vividly as possible; the bottles should fit comfortably the hand and be as lightweight as possible and processible on existing lines; cost-effectiveness and sustainability are welcome.

With our comprehensive "Bottles & ShapesTM" program, we will join you exactly at this point and accompany you throughout the entire process of bottle design - from clarification of the ideas through development and production up to and including presentation at the point of sale. A special aspect: thanks to our comprehensive consulting expertise and more than forty years of expertise in the field of PET lines, you can rest assured that the entire project is in competent hands at all times.

On the one hand we have our eye on the entire process; on the other we focus our specific attention to the important details, from which you greatly profit. In this way we place our extensive experience as a pioneer in lightweighting at your disposal, for example. We have developed the lightest 0.5-liter PET bottle with a screw cap for highly carbonated beverages which weighs just 9.9 grams. This innovation has been supplemented by our most recent design study: the lightest 0.5-liter PET bottle for still water currently available on the market weighing just 5 grams. Its innovative design is perfectly adapted to suit the required load, enabling huge material savings with the best possible stability. This results in fewer CO2 emissions which in turn meets the growing demand of consumers for ecologically sustainable packaging. In addition this innovative approach has a positive effect on the costs of production as about 70% of the manufacturing costs are attributable to the materials used.

Numerous aspects play a role in the development of the ideal bottle design: The PET bottle not only has to satisfy the desired individual aesthetics requirements, but also has to consider the psychological and brand-specific aspects in addition to fulfilling many demands for functionality and economy. Ultimately, the requirements are to be implemented as efficiently and inexpensively as possible and at the same time satisfy the requirement for top quality. Our unique and comprehensive Bottles & ShapesTM Line service offers you all this and more. Our goal is to offer you a sustainable, cost-effective, flexible, and reliably producing beverage bottling line.
