Lightweight Containers revealed some of its latest developments at Brau Beviale. Additional fittings for KeyKeg and UniKeg, global expanding of their production facilities and a clever tool for the home market are examples of these innovations.
The UniKeg range of products is already available with Sankey-D and Sankey-S fittings. Now, Lightweight Containers is adding a non-alcoholic fitting to the KeyKeg and UniKeg as well as other fittings for the UniKeg. According to CCO Annemieke Hartman, the company has also searched for an option to make home use possible. For the keg to be relevant in the home market they needed to eliminate complex, expensive dispense systems.
The focus on expansion is also refelected in a growing global presence. Lightweight Containers has just opened and is building state-of-the-art production facilities in Seaham, UK (2018), near Madrid, Spain (2019) and a location yet to be determined in Italy (2019/2020). Besides that a number of other locations is under consideration in the short term.
Griprings and base cups of the kegs are made of 100% post consumer recyclate.
