BevSource, LLC, specialists in supplying beverage manufacturers and brand owners with ingredients and packaging, today announced an exclusive sales partnership with Invento Americas, Inc. to introduce and sell Invento's innovative plastic cans to North America. The alliance brings together BevSource's decade of experience serving the beverage industry with Invento's revolutionary PET (polyethylene terephthalate) can product.
"We are excited to partner with Invento to expand their introduction of PET cans in North America," stated Mike Gondek, CEO of BevSource, LLC. "We believe our strong customer and co-packer relationships will allow us to be successful in bringing this innovative packaging to market in the U.S. and Canada."
Established in 2003 in Warsaw, Poland, Invento is launching in the United States with a new plant opening in Sheboygan, Wisconsin in early 2016. Invento Americas will offer the North American beverage industry a new way to package and display canned beverages. The Invento PET can combines the best features of both the aluminum can and PET bottle, utilizing a seaming method instead of the blow molding of the past. At about the same cost of an aluminum can, the new clear can offers brand owners a way to show off their liquid in a light, flexible, sustainable package not previously offered to the market.
"We chose to partner with BevSource and its parent company, Production Services International, because of their strong network and deep knowledge of the beverage industry in North America, which will help support our fast growth," said William Brandell, President and Managing Partner of Invento Americas, Inc. "We are confident their expertise and credibility will enable us to effectively demonstrate to manufacturers, brand owners, and consumers how our product will revolutionize the beverage arena.”
Available nationwide, this groundbreaking technology is compatible with existing can filling production lines, and can be flash pasteurized. Invento’s unique packaging is available in ready-made options including 10.5 ounce, 12 ounce, and 16 ounce sizes using standard 200 and 202 aluminum ends. Shapes and colors are customizable with the options for embossing or debossing at an affordable price.
