Craft Beer Industry Association will visit Verst Packaging facility for tour and demonstration
Verst Packaging, a division of Verst Logistics headquartered in Walton, Kentucky, will host members of the Kentucky Guild of Brewers for a guided tour and demonstration at the Verst facility in Hebron, Kentucky, on July 27.
Verst is a member of the Guild and, said Peter Parker, Director of New Business Development for Beer, Wine and Spirits, “We thought it would be a great opportunity to let the brewers become even more familiar with the full range of our capabilities and services.”
Verst has developed turnkey contract packaging solutions that offer new flexibility and custom can decoration, traditionally unaffordable for small brewers. Verst has developed the expertise and technology to increase speed to market for smaller runs, as well as regionalized and seasonal decorating, at highly affordable rates.
“We have the technical process expertise to support the Craft Beer Market,” stated Will Schretzman, Vice President of Verst Packaging. “We are really providing something special for the Craft Beer Market. There are other companies out there that do what we do, but what sets us apart is our vast expertise in Shrink Sleeve manufacturing and state-of-the-art Shrink Sleeve label application. We can support Craft Brewers and at the same time support Fortune 500 companies as well.” By providing project management, technical expertise and a superior product, Verst is unique in what they offer the Craft Beer industry.
As the largest contract sleeve labeling organization in North America, Verst serves over 100 breweries and produces more than 1,000,000 cans a week at their facility in Hebron, Kentucky, and is honored to host the Kentucky Guild of Brewers visit on July 27.
