Liquid packaging giant Sidel Group has reportedly acquired PET Engineering to expand its packaging solutions portfolio in containers for water, liquid dairy products, soft drinks, and beer. As per trusted sources, the company has won several awards for its 39g bottle, which is an alternative to glass with advantages such as resilience, affordability, lightweight and its LuxCap, made with LaBrenta.
