The new modern equipment for filling beer in glass bottles is custom made for Pivara Skopje by the world renowned manufacturer of such equipment – the company Krones. The official start of operation of the new equipment follows a nearly three-month thorough preparation, calibration and testing of its performance, which provided all assurances that the new equipment with its advanced technical and technological capabilities will increase the level of reliability and speed in production and will retain the high quality of the beer.
“Pivara Skopje has always applied the latest technology for the production of beer, which combined with the knowledge, skills and experience of employees acquired in the past 93 years, allows us to create beer to the highest standards and quality criteria. This new modern equipment, with its superior performance and advanced technological solutions is a great continuation of the success story of the creation of beer which we are all proud of and enjoy,” says Kirco Stojanov, Pivara Skopje’s Beer Production Manager.
