Celtic Pure to Double Capacity With a New Krones Line

Celtic Pure, founded in 2000 by Padraig and Pauline McEneaney, have just placed an order with Krones UK Ltd, which doubles their current filling capacity to 18,000 bph. The Eur2.5 million investment in the latest Krones technology will give Celtic Pure the capacity to produce 80 million bottles a year.

This past summer has been a record for the company as sales topped 40 million bottles and Padraig McEneaney was keen to capitalise on the strong growth of his brands, which have also been very successful in the 2014 BBI Drinks Competition where they won a Gold and Silver medal.

Padraig McEneaney comments: “I started my search for the new line at last year’s Drinktec, having evaluated a number of suppliers I chose the Krones proposal not only for the quality of equipment and the reputation they have within the industry, but also for the after sales and service back up from their UK base in Bolton.”

The Krones Contiform will be producing 5 bottle sizes, 250ml, 500ml, 750ml, 1 litre and 1.5 litres for still water.
