In cooperation with our client, we developed the combined beer/air valve and the structural parts on the bottom and top of the keg. Optimum cooperation has resulted in a combination of functionality, weight saving and sustainability.
‘Alligator Plastics was initially a great producer, especially of the concept I had developed myself,’ tells Bert Hanssen. At the time we were one of the few plastic injection molding companies that offered the 2K injection molding technique. ‘They quickly became more of an engineering firm and I could leave large parts of the development of the injection molding work to them. They know the product pretty much as well as I do, and they have a high level of engineering. For product improvements and new product developments I only need to put a few key words down on paper. The engineers then take it over from me, quickly and efficiently, and come up with smart and innovative translations of my ideas. They regularly also come with good and innovative ideas themselves. That saves me engineering costs in my own company.’ The result of this cooperation is a complete family of KeyKeg products with high added value.
