Russian glass manufacturer Stekloteh has modernised its Tyumen plant to European standards.

The company can produce 300 million bottles a year.

The plant chose Bottero engineers to carry out the work, which has helped increase line capacity by 5%.

Previously, 15 bottles out of 100 were defective, and this figure has now been reduced.

Stekloteh Director, Sergey Gerashchenko, said the upgrade will pay for itself in about a year as the line is now aligned for the use of lightweight bottles.

This has resulted in lower transportation costs for the plant.
