Röders lab sucessfully re-audited
Since July 2013 Röders blow mould division is validating and testing blown bottles for the global beverage player PepsiCo.
The in-house laboratory since then is an officially approved Pepsi laboratory with a multiplicity of bottle qualifications during the recent 5 years. Based on these results, PepsiCo decides if new developments or designs will make it to the shelfs of the supermarkets. During summer 2018, the Soltau based lab was successfully re-audited and now is qualified again until at least 2021.
Customers of Röders appreciate the extensive testing in the performed by well-skilled employees – also in the case of light-weighting projects or arrangements for energy savings such as blowing air reduction. The Röders GmbH is happy about the extended certification and is looking forward to an ongoing successful collaboration with PepsiCo and other bottlers in the future.
