UK-based polyethylene terephthalate (PET) packaging provider Petainer has selected Crusader to distribute its petainerKeg range of kegs across the country.
Designed to hold a variety of beverages, the petainerKeg is a one-way 20l or 30l keg made from highly engineered advanced polymers.
The lightweight container enhances protection and offers a reduced cost compared to traditional steel kegs.
Petainer distribution sales director Brett Lamont said: “The appointment of Crusader as our UK distributor is another important step in building our global network of distribution partners for our products.
“We have chosen Crusader because they understand the brewery market very well and recognise that there is a huge opportunity for one-way PET kegs.”
The company also noted its petainerKeg system is fully recyclable and helps to reduce carbon emissions and freight costs.
Petainer currently develops, designs and manufactures PET containers for the food and beverage sectors.
The company has manufacturing facilities in Sweden and Czech Republic, blowing facilities in North America, Russia, India and Australia, and sales offices in Sweden, the Czech Republic, Germany, the US, Canada and the UK.
In November 2016, Petainer announced that it had developed a tailored craft brewery proposition, as part of its global expansion plans.
