Packaging specialists Petainer has launched a range of rental agreements for its filling and blowing line, designed to help customers take advantage of its petainerKeg system.

According to the manufacturer, the agreements are designed to give breweries, among others, access to new equipment that will enable them to grow and enter new markets.

The company is experiencing growth in its petainerKeg system, which offers breweries an alternative to steel kegs.

It cites reduced capital expenditure, lower total cost of ownership and significant supply chain benefits, as key reasons for the increased popularity.

Lease agreements can be tailored to suit customer needs, enabling them to rent a range of equipment.

This ranges from standalone manual systems to fully-automated blow fill lines on a ‘pay per keg’ basis. Payment start from €0.60 per keg [$USD 0.65 / $CAD 0.85].  

Brett Lamont, Sales Director Distribution at Petainer said: “We wanted to develop a solution for customers which helps them grow and expand their business.

“For many, the lease agreements will provide a cost-effective option for taking advantage of all the benefits of petainerKeg.

“We have already seen a great deal of interest in this approach because it can be tailored to meet individual customer’s needs.”
