Krones to build new Korean plant.

Three subsidiary companies of the Kronseder business group--Krones AG, Steinecker and Seeger--recently signed an agreement with Jinro-Coors Brewing Co., in Seoul, Korea, to supply equipment for the new plant being built in Cheong Won Kun.

The value of the contract totals nearly $40 million, of which $27 million will go toward bottling and packaging machinery manufactured by Krones.

Seeger will supply the malthouse and milling plant for the new 2.5 million-hL brewery, while Steinecker will be responsible for the new brewhouse.

Krones will install two complete bottling lines, as well as a can line. Each bottling line will be equipped to handle 300-, 500- and 640-ml. bottle sizes at outputs of up to 60,000 bph, a company spokesperson reported.

The canning line will have an output of up to 30,000 cans per hour, and will be equipped with a sterile filling machine, which incorporates steam sterilization of the can and can end.
