After opening a factory in Beijing a decade ago, packaging equipment maker Sidel opened its first new aseptic laboratory in the capital.
The new laboratory will mainly be used to test sterile and ultra-clean equipment produced in Beijing, including a testing room and other cleaning and disinfection facilities.
Xiderer Beijing factory has 56 sets of advanced equipment to assist its team in the deconsolidation detection of bottle preforms and caps, detection of hydrogen peroxide residue in packaging, and microbial separation and purification.
In addition to addressing potential product-related issues, aseptic laboratories provide strong training support to customers.
Demand for sterile PET production lines is likely to grow, says Mr Sidler, given the increasing focus on products such as liquid milk and herbal drinks.
According to Euromonitor, the market has the third-fastest cagr in market capitalisation, after water and beer;
In terms of output, it is second only to the annual compound growth rate of water.
"With more than 40 years of aseptic expertise and nearly 100 production lines working with tetra pak processing systems, the local food and beverage market can take full advantage of our clear leadership in this area," says Scarlet Chen, sidra's vice President of beverage equipment sales and services in greater China.
Earlier this month, cedor announced that * executive Sam Stromersten would step down this summer, to be replaced by Monica Gimre, executive vice President of Tetra Pak's production and equipment division.
The announcement comes less than five months after sidler completed its landmark acquisition of packaging design company PETEngineering to provide end-to-end solutions for its PET packaging customers.
Stromersten said: "the Beijing plant is an industrial investment that sidler has made in its history. It is our factory capable of producing a wide range of packaging equipment.
With nearly 4,000 facilities in China, the company has a technical training center covering an area of 1,200 square meters to provide professional technical training.
In addition, our commitment to quality, professionalism and global industrial footprint clearly demonstrate our commitment to the Chinese market."
This year marks the 30th anniversary of its Beijing factory, and Scarlet Chen says: "with 400 full-line solutions in Beijing, Scarlet Chen has a wealth of experience in solving problems for its customers.
