An early 2007 upgrade to the downstream operations of Foster's Wine Estates Americas at its Napa Bottling Co. facility in Napa, CA provided labor savings and improved throughput. Added were a MeadWestvaco carrier loader and Sabel case packer that are highlighted in the video.

Part of Australia-based Foster's Group, this facility bottles Beringer Estates products. It dedicates this 150-ft-long U-shaped line to packaging 187-mL PET bottles packed in handled carriers and then cased for shipment.
