SWEDEN: Coke bottler upgrades production line

By | 12 November 2007

Coca-Cola Drycker Sverige AB has invested in its bottling facility, the company said today.

The Swedish Coca-Cola bottler said that with the move from refillable PET-bottles to non-refillable it had upgraded its production facility to make one of the biggest production lines in Scandinavia.

Speaking to just-drinks, a spokesperson said that the new line could produce 36,000 bottles an hour from 0.5 litres to 2.5l sizes.

"It's a more flexible solution which we need in order to expand and become more competitive," the spokesperson said. "Using non-refillable PET-bottles saves us from transporting empty bottles which take up a lot of space, it also cuts out the washing of the bottles which saves energy and water."
