Production Process

In a market where competitive edges are really marginal, we simply make the difference. Our direct customer approach philosophy, the unique flexibility and adaptability of the manufacturing process enables us to address extraordinary requests, optimise distance and time factors and maximize customer satisfaction. All phases of the manufacturing process are vertically integrated. Our in-house prepress department, printing, quality control, packaging and shipping are fine-tuned to guarantee on time delivery at the shortest lead times. Once we receive the artwork and order, everything mobilizes. A creative team develops your artwork and the PDF file is approved in as little as 24 hours. Your batch is scheduled and produced to perfection and be it ground, sea or air transportation, outstanding fault free crown caps arrive to your production line ready to use, in a best value for money and time ratio.

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

Thinking Green

We believe in sustainable crown corks manufacturing and we make it happen.
Astir crown corks are created in high-speed, eco-friendly and energy saving production lines that exceed any market and environmental standard. Our company applies an integrated internal recycling programme for almost 99% of raw material and waste. All our needs in hot water are generated from renewable sources through a heat exchanging system. We managed to minimize CO2 emissions by adapting natural gas supply and incinerator burners. Going even greener, we use natural light during the day and salvage any kind of recyclable materials: used oil, paper, plastics, broken pallets and scrap steel webs. No matter if they are golden, silver, white or color printed, Astir crown corks are always “green”, with perpetually lower carbon footprint.
