The Argentinian company Reginald Lee has invested US$ 16.5 millions in a project that marries sustainability and automation using KHS technology. In fact, Reginald Lee already operates four turnkey KHS lines and has also installed a new production shop featuring a hot fill line with a capacity of up to 26,400 bottles per hour.
Located south of Buenos Aires, Reginald Lee is a family-owned company that serves over 4,6 million people, accruing about 50% of the market share in the area.
The KHS technology optimizes the bottlers to be efficient and environmentally friendly, while at the same time maximizing productivity and improving reliability on a systemic level.
There is a long-standing professional relationship between Reginald Lee and KHS. Juan José Basso, Plant Manager at Reginald Lee, stated, “In KHS Argentina we have a powerful local contact to support us. During the course of the long-term partnership between our two companies we’ve established an after-sales and service scenario which works perfectly – both regarding the supply of spare parts and maintenance.”
Orlando Diz, Production Manager at Reginald Lee, further remarked, "With KHS we feel we’re in good hands and well understood, even above and beyond the sophistication of the technology."
