If you are a filler or brand owner then your main business is your product, not the bottles it may be filled in. While there are many cost advantages to manufacture at least the bottles in-house, the introduction of a new technology also poses a number of challenges. While you may opt to talk to the equipment manufacturers directly you may find that they do not necessarily have your interest in mind. Their main interest is in selling you as much machinery as possible whether it is the best fit or you really need it.

The move to in-house production should not be taken lightly. If it involves extrusion blow molding or injection molding, the change to 3-shift production is a major shift in any organisation. We have worked out the logistics to unsupervised PET injection molding that would allow you to continue running in one or two shifts only. Or you could opt to go in-line with injection molding and blow molding on a 3-shift basis for which we have a model as well.
You will find that with our expert involvement your in-house operation will start smoothly and deliver the cost savings that will keep you competitive.
