PET bottle manufacturer Ascent Ltd. (Mississauga, ON) has expanded its capacity by installing a SIG Corpoplast stretch blow molding machine purchased at NPE in June. The new unit, a Blowmax 20/III, will be used for 500 ml PET bottles. It can produce 30,000 bottles per hour.
Ascent is a privately-held supplier of PET bottles, with two main product lines: bottles for water ranging from 250 ml to 1.5 L, and 473-ml bottles for juices, dairy and teas.
The company was founded in 1988, and expanded in 2002 with the purchase of two high capacity, 20-cavity stretch blow molding machines. One of these was a SIG Corpoplast Blowmax 20 Series III, similar to the one purchased this year.
