Nov 22 2011 --- Greiner Packaging is enlarging its machinery pool in Dungannon (Northern Ireland) with a new injection stretch blow molding machine. Günter Ausserwöger, Head of Division Kavo at Greiner Packaging, explains the background to this investment: “With this machine, we bring our competence for injection stretch blow molding close to our customers, completely in accordance with Greiner Packaging’s strategy. As a result, new interesting opportunities for Division Kavo are being created for the markets in Great Britain and Ireland.”

Its neck has an opening of 80 milliliters. Ausserwöger adds: “Containers like these can be used for a wide array of products. We expect good market opportunities for packaging in these dimensions and expect to continue enlarging our product assortment.”
