Yuengling, one of the oldest breweries in the United States, traditionally has used case-packing equipment manufactured by Standard-Knapp, one of the oldest casing machinery manufacturers in the United States. It has been a long, mutually beneficial partnership.

Based on this long experience, Yuengling has high confidence in the machinery supplier and their ability to deliver durable, high-performance packaging equipment. In fact, the brewery still owns a vintage S-K packer that has been in operation since World War II and still runs today.
Over the years, the efficiencies offered by the S-K machines have continued to help the craft beer maker prosper and grow in the intensely competitive beer market.
