Heye International will provide equipment for Australia’s Orora group’s $42 million expansion.
Heye will supply three IS-machines and cold end equipment, including the Heye Swabbing Robot, to Orora’s Gawler plant in South Australia.
The packaging company recently announced the expansion project and aims to increase its annual glass bottle production at the plant by 60 million.
It cited rising demand in the beverage industry, the lower rating of its domestic currency and the tendency to bottle Australian wine in the homeland again.
The expansion will create 25 new full-time jobs at the facility, while a further 85 workers will be involved in the construction process.
