Because of the growing demand for KeyKeg and UniKeg in Europe, Lightweight Containers is opening two warehouses in Spain. The warehouses are located in the Guadalajara and Bilbao regions and are an addition to the production plant in Guadalajara that will be opened in 2019. Thanks to the location, the warehouses will serve to meet orders not only from Spain but from all over Europe.
Anita Veenendaal, Chief Executive Officer of Lightweight Containers, says: “We see service as a crucial element of our success. Next to the product, we aim to provide the best service and keeping stock as close to our customers as possible. The new warehouses will further improve this service. And it will further reduce our carbon footprint, the costs of transport and improve delivery times.”
With the opening of the production line and warehouses in Guadalajara, Lightweight Containers has a global presence of 5 production lines and 12 warehouses. However, it doesn’t end there for the company. In 2019 another line will be opened elsewhere in Southern Europe in order to keep up with demands and so that Lightweight Containers can keep offering customers the best possible service and flexibility.

Sustainable packaging solution
The family owned business has an eye for the long term and especially for the environment. For this reason they initiated OneCircle (www.onecircle.world) to create and implement collection networks in a varied number of countries in addition, when possible, to the existing waste streams. OneCircle is continuously partnering with relevant businesses to create a circular economy.
At the moment OneCircle started successful collection and recycling projects in the Netherlands, United Kingdom, France and Belgium, broadening the reach from these counties to global networks. At the same time, OneCircle is exploring effective networks to be introduced to additional countries across the globe. We have to highlight that our activities are continuous work in progress, taking our responsibility in the end of life of kegs.
