Swiss group Vetropack closed a deal with Vertech’ early this year to install SIL2016 in the company’s recently acquired Italian plant, Trezzano sul Naviglio.

Vetropack bought the northern Italian plant from Bormioli Rocco in June 2015 to strengthen its position in the European market.

Trezzano sul Naviglio currently produces around 140,000 tons of glass packaging every year for the food and beverage industry and used Vertech’ solutions for production line monitoring and quality control on some of its lines.

Vetropack’s decision to extend SIL to the remaining production lines and the mould department is part of the company’s corporate strategy to gain market share, as well as expand its current product portfolio and customer base.

SIL2016 is scheduled for installation in Trezzano sul Naviglio before the end of the first quarter.
