Head of PET Processing Asia Pacific.


There is an old saying that “Time is Money”. For the manufacturers and bottlers of PET containers, this means optimizing PET production performance and organizing high-quality output. To stay competitive, processing plants must be continually improved.

Krones AG is a German packaging and bottling machine manufacturer. It is the world’s leading manufacturer of lines for filling beverages in plastic and glass bottles or beverage cans. The company manufactures stretch blow-molding machines for producing polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles, plus fillers, labellers, bottle washers, pasteurisers, inspectors, packers and palletisers. Krones product portfolio is complemented by material flow systems and process technology for producing beverages, plus syrup kitchens, for clients like breweries, dairies and soft-drink companies.

Understanding that Krones is essentially part of customers’ “production line” is what drives us to prepare and develop technical guidance through a collection of PET process data. The purpose is to provide timely customer service and deliver customized solution at a minimal cost. For us, each customer is a person with diverse needs and requirements, and is treated as a partner – efficiently, reliably and honestly.
