Brazil: Itambé brings in a fourth filling machine from SIG Combibloc
Success story continues
Itambé has been a customer of SIG Combibloc since 2008. The company’s first SIG filling machine was put into operation at the Goiânia production plant, where the main focus of production is filling condensed milk. Other SIG filling machines are in operation at Itambé’s Uberlândia and Sete Lagoas production plants. In Uberlândia, the primary product is UHT milk, packaged in combiblocMidi 1,000 ml carton packs with combiSwift screw cap. Production is on a SIG CFA 812 filling machine. In Sete Lagoas, as in Goiânia, condensed milk is filled in carton packs from SIG Combibloc.
Antonieta Hilst, Market Director at SIG Combibloc South America: “Itambé is one of our biggest dairy customers in Brazil. The decision to bring in a fourth SIG filling machine once again reaffirms our partnership. We are very pleased with how satisfied Itambé is with the filling technology and packaging solutions from SIG Combibloc, and we’re confident that this will lead to further joint projects in the near future”.
Alexandre Almeida, president at Itambé: “For us, the decision to have another filling machine from SIG Combibloc is the logical consequence of the great partnership between our two companies. In addition, we’ve always been particularly impressed by the flexibility of the filling machines from SIG Combibloc – as regards the variety of products, and the format and volume flexibility. On a single filling machine, we can safely fill not only standard products, but also innovative special products in two different formats and several volumes. These criteria strongly influenced our decision”.
Itambé is based in the federal state of Minas Gerais, and has been active on the Brazilian market for more than 67 years. The company processes 3.5 million litres of milk each day. Itambé’s portfolio contains more than 190 products – including various UHT milk products, yoghurt, cottage cheese and sweetened condensed milk. The company is one of Brazil’s largest dairy operations, with about 3,300 permanent employees and more than 7,000 suppliers.
