Innovation sustainable

32 – 40 hours weekly

An ice cold beer or a nice glass of wine every now and then, we are fans! But have you ever considered the production process of a glass bottle? We do! In fact, it is our daily work to optimize the production process of glass bottles and jars at our clients in the global packaging glass industry.

XPAR Vision develops, installs and implements unique sensor and robot technology, with which we help companies in the glass industry to – think of the bottles of Heineken and Coca-Cola – make it lighter and stronger. We have now installed more than 600 systems in more than 35 countries, making us a specialist and market leader!

We believe that glass is the best packaging material in terms of experience, quality and above all durability. Our goal is therefore that more and more food manufacturers opt for the packaging material glass. Which directly contributes to a more sustainable world: minimizing the carbon footprint.
