Petainer offers lease agreements for keg blowing lines

Petainer has started rental agreements for blow moulding and filling equipment for customers using its petainerKeg one-way keg system.

PetainerKeg is the UK-based company’s barrier PET keg which aims to replace steel kegs used by breweries, wineries and cider producers to deliver their drinks to bars and restaurants. Petainer makes its kegs in sizes of 15, 20 and 30 litres. It also supplies preforms to larger customers who blow and fill the keg using their own equipment.

Petainer says the new agreements enable customers to grow and enter new markets by taking advantage of the two-stage process through leasing rather than buying blow moulding equipment. It is working with blow moulding machine manufacturers KHS, Sidel and PET Technologies to supply customers with the right equipment to meet their needs.

Petainer said: “The new lease agreements can be tailored to suit customers’ specific needs, enabling them to rent a range of equipment, from standalone manual systems to fully-automated blow fill lines on a simple ‘pay per keg’ basis, with payments as low as €0.60 per keg ($USD 0.65/$CAD 0.85). There is no up-front fee or deposit and customers have the option to purchase at the end of the lease.”

Brett Lamont, sales director for 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.”
