On its 100th anniversary, Station 22, one of Quebec’s largest producers, distributors and bottlers of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, announced the installation of two state-of-the-art pieces of equipment at its Montreal plant, representing a total investment of $6 million. Station 22 set up a pasteurization tunnel, which eliminates the use of preservatives during the bottling process, and a high-speed production line for cans to meet the ever-growing demand for this type of container.
The pasteurization tunnel allows the bottling of several Station 22 products without using preservatives. The high-speed can line doubles the production capacity for the can format.
“This is a bit like a gift to ourselves to mark our 100th birthday,” said Francois Malenfant, president of Station 22. “These two new pieces of equipment are the latest milestones in the company’s history, which has been marked by many milestones and product launches that have been appreciated by Quebec consumers.”
