Discovering Savings Opportunities
Bottle Saving Opportunity
If you're looking for cost savings, there is no better investment than vertical integration.
The largest opportunity for cost reduction resides with manufacturing the container thereby eliminating many costly material handling steps.
With innovations from manufacturers, blow and injection molding is not the mystery it was 10 years ago. With automated controls and self diagnostics, food and beverage plants can now own and operate molders with confidence.
Manufacturers also provide comprehensive maintenance plans to assist bottlers with everything from equipment audits to parts updates on a regular basis.
The average savings we see on most projects generates a payback in less than 2.5 years.

Preform/Resin Saving Opportunity
An additional component to the savings picture is the full integration of injection molding. When plant production requires multiple lines, the ROI for onsite injection molding can quickly become very attractive.

Closure Saving Opportunity
The next significant element to vertical integration is closure manufacturing. For a typical 28mm PCO, savings can be up to $5 per thousand. Inter-Tech has the staff and experience to walk you through every step of the vertical integration process to insure maximum cost savings.
Manufactured in polyethylene, plastic closures allow you maximum flexibility for vertical integration.
Closure systems typically offer less than a two year payback with 1/3 of the initial capital cost of preform injection systems.

Standard Cap Size vs. "Shorty"
Plastics closures can be made in various styles and sizes to complete your packing of health and beauty, cosmetic, food, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, medical or other applications.

Freight Saving Opportunity
This economic justification benchmark is immediate savings in freight. The typical ratio from bottles to preforms for a 52' trailer is 10 to 1. Whether your current bottle supplier is 10 or 200 miles away, those costs for transportation goes directly against your bottom line.
