PakTech has provided over 180 million can carrier handles to the craft brew market since 2014 and has serviced over 1,500 breweries and cider makers to date. With this increasing exposure, Australian craft brewers and cider makers have also been using the PakTech solution. PakTech’s large U.S. production capacity in Eugene, OR, has been filling the Australia orders, but the long ocean voyage prompted the distribution warehouse investment.
Containers of PakTech product are now warehoused in Sydney, available for immediate distribution. By shipping in multi–container quantities, PakTech offers their sustainable, consumer-preferred, high-end packaging to the Australian market in a more cost-effective and expedited manner.
In addition to their proprietary, injection molded, recycled HPDE can handles, PakTech provides automated application equipment. Over 150 automated CCA120 machines (up to 120 cans/minute) are operating at breweries in the U.S. Also available for craft brewers are the CCA600 (600 cans/minute) and the new CCA280 (280 cans/minute) applicators. PakTech applicators are all built and shipped to order from the PakTech factory in the U.S.
“Customers and prospects are welcome to call or contact us directly for minimum orders of one pallet or more,” explains Amie Thomas, VP of Sales and Marketing. “For smaller and specialty orders, please continue to use your local distributors for best delivery and responsive and customer-focused service.”
