According to the company, the facility currently supplies 20l and 30l PetainerKegs to customers in Russia, Belarus and the Ukraine.

Petainer strategy director Annemieke Hartman-Jemmett said that the company’s new production unit adopts the latest technology and produces kegs and containers that adhere to quality, safety and environmental standards.

"Russia is a very important market, and our Klin factory will enable us to tap into the rapid growth opportunities in this part of the world," Hartman-Jemmett added.

Lightweight PetainerKegs offer economic and environmental benefits compared to metal kegs and other plastic variants. Available with one-way low-cost fittings, the PET containers can be connected to existing tapping systems for draught beer.

Additionally, PET PetainerCoolers contain zero bisphenol-A (BPA) and are a safer alternative to other coolers on the market.

Petainer highlighted its capabilities for the Russian market at UPAKOVKA/UPAK ITALIA 2014, the trade show for the plastics packaging industry, that took place in Moscow from 28 to 31 January.

"Participation in UPAKOVKA/UPAK ITALIA 2014 will enable us to reinforce our commitment to the Russian market and explain the benefits of our high-performance PetainerKegs and PetainerCoolers to new and existing customers," concluded Hartman-Jemmett.
