Carlsberg is the world’s fourth largest brewery group. The Group employs 41.000 people and is characterized by a high degree of diversity of brands, markets and cultures.
In order to respond to the growing demand, Carlsberg Bulgaria invested in the extension of its existing PET bottling line in Blagoevgrad. As a result of this investment, the bottling capacity of two of the biggest Bulgarian brands - ”Shumensko” and ”Pirinsko” - have been increased to 12.000 bottles of 2 liter per hour.
IPS was responsible for the preparation of the tender documentation and quotation requests. Furthermore we managed the coordination of the delivery and installation of the technological equipment as well as its integration in the existing line.
