UK-based Petainer has introduced new rental agreements for customers using its petainerKeg filling and blowing lines.
The new agreements can be used to rent various equipment, such as standalone manual systems and fully automated blow fill lines on a ‘pay-per-keg’ basis, with minimal payments.
No up-front fee or deposit is imposed on the agreement, while customers can select equipment to buy at the end of the lease.
The new agreements are expected to allow beverage manufacturers, such as breweries, wineries and cider producers, to enter new markets.
Petainer distribution sales director Brett Lamont said: “We wanted to develop a solution for customers which helps them grow and expand their business.
“For many, the lease agreements will provide a cost-effective option for taking advantage of all the benefits of petainerKeg.
“We have already seen a great deal of interest in this approach because it can be tailored to meet individual customer’s needs.”
Developed to replace the traditional steel kegs, petainerKeg is a one-way 20l or 30l keg made from highly engineered advanced polymers.
When used with the company’s petainerCooler, the system helps users to reduce ownership costs and offer various supply chain benefits.
Petainer is currently working with KHS, Sidel and PET Technologies to provide high-quality equipment to various customers.
The company develops, designs and manufactures polyethylene terephthalate (PET) food and beverage containers.
