Allied Glass, Leeds, Great Britain


From small distilleries to global brand icons, if you want to fulfil the various requirements of bottle design for the spirits industry, you must be one thing above all else – flexible. The BIS glass forming machine from Bucher Emhart Glass allows Allied Glass to quickly switch between different orders while maintaining a high level of precision and repeat accuracy – for both simple and more complex bottle designs. “The BIS machine has transformed us into a far more competitive company. With the BIS machine we are ready for the future – our future!”, said Summers.
