The Pennsylvania facility debuted just over two years ago, for a product line of brewed tea and herbal infusions. Since then, the company has further strengthened its formulation and processing support, expanded its capabilities to include concentrates and fully formulated beverages, and now with the addition of a bottling line, it can offer end-to-end services under one roof.
Martin Bauer North America’s newest filling line is intentionally designed for flexibility as tea and botanicals continue to increase in their presence within all beverage segments. The hot fill line is able to handle 10-32 oz. PET, HDPE, and glass bottles of differing base sizes, shapes, and closures. This system, combined with the west coast filling lines, allows the company to accommodate bottles, cans, carbonated and non-carbonated, hot or cold fill, and 1-oz. to 1-gallon beverages. From small scale pilot production to expanded production for well-established brands, Martin Bauer reports that its coast-to-coast bottling network can run a variety of packaging for RTDs, syrups, and foodservice solutions in one process, increasing speed to market and decreasing cost.
“Our goal is to solve the unique challenges faced in every point of the beverage industry. With our domestic clients in mind, we are continually adding to and reinforcing our powerful raw materials platform, five manufacturing hubs, and unparalleled team of beverage scientists,” Ennio Ranaboldo, CEO of the Martin Bauer Group in North America, said. “As innovation reaches new heights within the industry, we observed a need for an agile system focused on custom batches for small to medium runs to keep pace. We are excited to meet that need with our newest bottling line in Pennsylvania, and further our commitment as the go-to solutions provider for all beverage companies, from formulation houses to brands.”
