At the sight of the new brewer box with the matching 0.33l bottle in the “Euro style”, the answer to the question is difficult. Is this another project that follows the retro trend and has expanded the division by an additional package, or has created a completely independent style of design.
The answer may ultimately answer the users of this unique package. We are very pleased that this combination is increasingly popular with our customers. However, this is not difficult with the obvious advantages to other box combinations of this still new form of packaging. The following aspects should be mentioned:
- Diameter of a standard 0.33l long-neck bottle, therefore only small costs are expected in the of filling technology
- Special height, reduction of foreign bottles in returnable crates
- Multipackability is given, for 6 and 4 packs
- Lower weight (70gr compared to 0.33l long-neck)
- Almost the same labeling area size as 0.33l long-neck
- Available in brown, white & green color
- Available with CC as well as MCA mouth
The new box in connection with the fitting bottles was realized as a joint project by DELBROUCK and our partner EUROGLAS. The first new customers, which successfully introduced the new container, are the breweries Kauzen Bräu GmbH & Co. KG Ochsenfurt and Kaiser-Brauerei Geislingen / Steige.
The new combination is ideal for the presentation of special or seasonal specialties. For further information, please contact our sales team.
The BrauBeviale is an exhibition for the whole process chain of beverage production: raw materials, technologies, logistics and marketing. As one of the best-known and largest bottle crate manufacturers in the industry, DELBROUCK will also participate when the exibition takes place from 8th to 10th November in Nuremberg Germany.
As in previous years, the DELBROUCK team is looking forward to welcome well known contacts, new business partners and interested trade fair visitors on their booth.
Furthermore we like to present our new partner Euroglas who also can be found at our exhibition stand. Euroglas is one of the leading service providers of the middle-sized food and beverage industry. After the acquisition of the traditional company “Flaschen Kraus” at the beginning of 2016 DELBROUCK und Euroglas will present their first partnership project: the new developed 0,33l “Brauer” returnable bottle with the modified and individualized bottle crate from DELBROUCK.
Visit us at our booth in hall 4 stand 123. We are looking forward to your visit!
It is the second award for DELBROUCK’s KUBI crate in 2016. In January, the trade association pro- K had already awarded this space-saving bottle crate project with the Gold Award .
Equally announcing is now that DELBROUCK awarded the Packaging Award 2016 in the category “Economic efficiency”.
The jury selected 35 award winners in 10 categories of 213 competitors from 9 different countries. The award ceremony takes place on Tuesday, 27th September 2016 during the trade fair FachPack in Nuremberg.
Furthermore, all participants can hope that their submission gets awarded with the Packing Award in Gold. In 2016 the jury will honor the first time submissions for ,,special quality, a high degree of innovation and impressive solutions of competition”. Link
The trade association pro-K presented the Product of the Year 2016 in Gold in the category Storage and Transport Systems to the company DELBROUCK for its bottle crate concept KUBI.
The special feature of these crates is that because of their design they can be stacked inside each other when they are turned upside down and whichever way round they are. This reduces the volume of empty crates. The functionality of the KUBI crate has the advantage that when empty crates are transported, 50% more can be stacked on a Euro-pallet.
“Perfect idea for the space-saving transport of a proven product. Technical solution which can only be implemented with plastic.”
With immediate effect, DELBROUCK GmbH from Menden has procured machines, tools and industrial property rights to manufacture beverage crates from Linpac Allibert (formerly Stucki) in Bad Salzuflen. This transaction covers only the production of beverage crates, which will be continued seamlessly by the new owner. The other production departments in Bad Salzuflen are not affected by this and will continue to be run by Linpac Allibert. This sale by Linpac Allibert is the result of the requirements of the German Federal Cartel Office in connection with the takeover of the company by One Equity Partners in March 2012. The portfolio of One Equity Partners already includes various well-known companies in the transport packaging sector, including Schoeller Arca Systems.
The parties involved have agreed to keep the financial details confidential.
With this purchase, DELBROUCK is further expanding its market position in Germany in the beverage crate sector. This enhancement of its capacity will enable DELBROUCK to implement major projects involving large lot sizes in a short period. The company will also continue to expand its presence in neighbouring countries.
“We expect this step to lead to a significant increase in our sales, which will also have a positive effect on our locations in Menden and Neuhaus-Schierschnitz,” explains Eckhard Broer, Managing Director of DELBROUCK.
DELBROUCK has received the award for “Product of the Year 2012” in the category Storage and Transport Systems from the Industrieverband Halbzeuge und Konsumprodukte aus Kunststoff e.V. (Industry Association for Semi-finished and Consumer Products Made of Plastic). The top-class jury of experts from a wide range of fields is very impressed by the new beverage crate: “The days of the simple bottle crate are past. DELBROUCK seamless crate design is revolutionising the world of bottle crates. A thrilling idea which achieves a great advertising impact.”
With this award DELBROUCK documents its leading position and expertise in in-mould label technology.
For a good two decades, a partner-like relationship has existed between the companies Alfa Brewery and DELBROUCK. Around one and a half years ago, Mr Harry Meens, owner of Alfa Brewery, expressed the wish to replace the crate which had been on the market since 2001 with a new one. After many discussions, meetings, technical tests, etc., the companies Alfa Brewery and DELBROUCK concluded the contract to supply the new crate at the trade fair booth of DELBROUCK during the Brau Beviale 2010 in Nuremberg. Parallel to designing and producing the tool, a large number of meetings were held regarding the design of the label. The result is a beer crate with a totally new style produced using the seamless in-mould labelling process. The Alfa crate is the perfect further development of the beverage crate for Rheinfels-Quelle (2009, presented with the Environment Award) and Apollinaris (in 2010), both products of DELBROUCK. With this novel technology, four in-mould labels are inserted in the injection moulding machine in such a way that the rounded corners of the crate have a label applied to them without any abutting edges, and the four individual labels thus assume the appearance of a single, uninterrupted all-round label. The options available to the designers are now much greater than with the classical beverage crate. The effect of beverage crates in this design is extremely striking and promotionally effective. Alfa Brewery is very satisfied with the new crate. According to the owner, the investment, which is high for a medium-sized brewery, has more than paid for itself. In addition to pleasing increases in sales, the brand has been given a new impulse and succeeded in gaining new consumers. As well as updating the crate, Alfa Brewery has also adjusted and developed the design of the crown caps, bottle labels and other aspects which support the product. The cooperation between Alfa Brewery and DELBROUCK is based on an excellent foundation, and the two companies look forward with pleasure and pride to a joint future.
Leave the “crate” behind: turn to sophisticated brand packaging. Under this slogan, DELBROUCK GmbH in Menden in conjunction with Alfa Brewery from Limburg (NL) has developed a novel, innovative process for in-mould labelling technology and now introduced it onto the market.
In principle, this involves encircling a beverage crate completely and seamlessly with a high-quality, scratch-resistant in-mould label.
A crate was developed especially for this purpose which provides a large radius at the corners to permit the decorative foil (in-mould label) to be curved perfectly.
On the basis of the experience gathered with the beverage crate introduced for the mineral spring industry (e.g. Rheinfels) in 2010, DELBROUCK has now created another technical highlight.
The investments in the new technology are not inconsiderable; work on the new crate took over one year, and the mechanical systems for high-speed series production were developed further.
The new crate’s label design was devised at Alfa, with a significant contribution being made by the owner Mr Meens. At the corners, it features a foaming beer which basically froths around the corner, thus conveying the idea of freshness and liveliness. Overall the look of the crate is extremely high-quality and modern. The effect of the colours is unusually striking in this form and stands out markedly from the competition at the POS. Naturally the new crate satisfies all the relevant requirements for internal and external logistics in the Benelux states. Great effort and care were taken to integrate all aspects relating to washing, filling, sorting and transport (stackability).
The new process opens up a wide range of new options for crate design.
In the past, only the sides and ends could be used, but now brand names and type descriptions can be written in straight lines or diagonally “round the corner”, just as required. The product and packaging designers can now set to work with totally new approaches to improving the advertising effectiveness of beverage crates. The new process offers enormous potential.
One further very important advantage concerns trademarks. The new in-mould label technology enables the crate to be protected as a three-dimensional brand and is therefore an important additional component of brand management. The path from the “boring” crate body to perfect brand design has now been smoothed.
Starting 1 February 2010, the two DELBROUCK locations in Menden, North Rhine-Westphalia, and Neuhaus-Schierschnitz, Thuringia, will belong to the Menden-based WILMS Group.
The WILMS Group provides DELBROUCK with a good basis for developing the existing business and expanding it further in the future. The Managing Partner of WILMS GmbH is Mr Johann Erich Wilms.
The WILMS Group comprises some 50 companies with approximately 4,000 employees.
Everyone involved is pleased that, after long months of uncertainty, a solid and effective basis has been found to enable the customers to be cared for and the innovations which continued to be developed without interruption to be offered on the market.
