After recently expanding its presence in the North American beverage market, Lightweight Containers BV, the company behind the UniKeg and KeyKeg one-way kegs, formed a strategic agreement with Micro Matic, the world’s leading manufacturer and supplier of keg valves and dispensing equipment. This agreement marks the first time KeyKeg dispense couplers will be able to dispense with pressure up to 4.1 bar, instead of 3.5 bar, while affording users the option to vent KeyKegs quickly and easily with the flick of a switch.
Beverage producers, distributors and the service industry are eager to integrate this venting tool into day-to-day operations as it saves time throughout the recycling process. KeyKeg couplers will be available directly from Micro Matic and on the KeyKeg webshop improving the availability of high-quality KeyKeg dispensing heads across the North American market.
“Lightweight Containers has developed as a strategic player in many of our biggest markets,” explained Key Account Manager Fred Mostert, Micro Matic. “Both Micro Matic and Lightweight Containers will focus on the total supply chain with a quality-driven approach. The global beer market will benefit from this agreement, not only through worldwide distribution of Micro Matic KeyKeg couplers but also through FlexiDraft, a disposable beer line draft concept which is now open for KeyKeg also.”
