The new facility, located in Beijing, includes blow molding machines, a laboratory dedicated to standard and aseptic fillers, and a Combi automation desk. According to a Sidel news release, the company will offer training courses for both blowers and fillers, for applications such as sensitive products, water, and carbonated soft drinks.
