Function meets design

The Romanian company Sitemani is one of the country's largest manufacturers of brand-name ketchup, mustard, and sauces. Since December of 2014, Sitemani has been banking on its collaboration with Greiner Packaging.

Kremsmünster, January 2015. Greiner Packaging has taken on the task of redesigning and developing the company's entire line of bottles. The result: An attractive appearance and a vastly improved filling process. The new design is based on customer survey results that Greiner Packaging's specialists have integrated perfectly into the new packaging.

Customers benefit from stability and maximum precision
Sitemani is one of the largest manufacturers in Romania of brand-name products in the sauce sector and its products have a presence in nearly all of the country's large retail chains. "The new bottles don't just look better, they also offer decisive advantages to customers," says Günter Ausserwöger, Head of Division Kavo, "On the one hand, the shapes deliver optimal stability, while on the other, the bottle mouths have been perfectly adapted to the specifications of the filling machine, which is now running without interruption. The big plus we offer is that we can guarantee absolute uniformity in bottle production; all bottles are identical." In addition to these benefits, the company prizes the comprehensive service Greiner Packaging provides, the low transport costs thanks to the proximity between customer and production site, and the packaging expert's high level of supply security.
