Greencroft Bottling invests £3m in filling lines

Greencroft_BottlingContract bottler Greencroft Bottling has invested £3m in filling lines and labellers at its facility in County Durham.

The investment means the firm now has seven production lines, increasing capacity of the wine and spirit bottling facility by 25%, allowing filling up to 90,000 bottles and boxes of wine per hour.

Greencroft is one of the largest wine bottlers in Europe, currently filling 145 million bottles and Tetra Pak cartons annually. Its filling lines operate 24 hours, 6 days a week, capable of filling over 50,000 bottles an hour.

Mostly powered by renewable energy, the facility is claimed to be one of the most environmentally friendly plants in Europe.

All the glass bottles used are partly recycled and the entire Tetra Pak package is recyclable, from sustainable sources. The company also claims to recycle its waste and surplus packaging materials including plastic, cardboard, unused labels, caps, wood, metal and glass.
Greencroft Bottling managing director Mark Satchwell said ongoing investments in both high-tech bottling technology and the renewable energy created on-site means the company offers a quality service with carbon savings on the final product.

“As a contract bottler we always try to have significant headroom to meet the needs of our customers whenever they need us and are already working on plans to grow our facilities even further.”
