Coca-Cola Amatil's Aussie manufacturing success story
Coca-Cola Amatil has launched a new Australian-made closure for Powerade bottles. The SyLon Sports closure was designed, tested and prototyped by Amatil’s packaging services division in Eastern Creek, Sydney.
All three components of the closure are made of the same high-density polyethylene material, making it more recyclable. This will help the company reduce the volume and variety of plastic content in its bottles.
Coca-Cola Amatil said it is the first of its kind to be approved by The Coca-Cola Company. It plans to manufacture more than 120 million SyLon Sports closures every year for use in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Papua New Guinea.
“We believe the SyLon Sports closure is an Aussie-manufacturing success story,” said Coca-Cola Amatil’s Group Managing Director, Alison Watkins. “Until now, we have imported closures from Europe and faced challenges with global supply. Our Packaging Services Division team at Eastern Creek took initiative and designed, tested and prototyped a closure cap which is more cost-effective, better for the environment and will be made in Western Sydney.”
