Just in time to make a nice swift order of your next supply of bottles based on the advice in this series, Owens-Illinois (O-I) launched a new e-commerce platform, O-I On Demand, to sell glass bottles to craft beverage and food producers in the United States. The website makes it easy and convenient for craft producers to purchase high-quality bottles directly from the world’s leading glass packaging manufacturer.
At launch, O-I On Demand is focused on the U.S. craft beer market, featuring 10 amber colored bottles ranging from 12- and 22-ounce designs to 32- and 64-ounce growlers. Customers can order in quantities as low as one half-height pallet, pay with a credit card and receive their glass in three to five days. All bottles are made in the United States.
Over time and based on market demand, the beer category offering, as well as offerings in other beverage and food market segments, will continue to expand.
The new platform complements and expands upon O-I’s existing product and service offerings. With more than 100 years in the industry, O-I combines extensive expertise in glass packaging with flexibility and service to cater to the needs of customers both large and small. In addition to a variety of stock bottles in a range of colors and finishes, O-I also offers comprehensive custom glass bottle design, manufacturing and decoration services, backed by industry-leading quality assurance.
