Alconor: a succesful story

Today Alconor is one of the most active and competitive companies in Romania in the production of soft drinks and water and has transformed itself from a family business to an industrial company appreciated at national level.

“A company only writes history when it has valuable people at its side and when it manages to form a team with them. We thank all the people who have joined the large Alconor Company family and our partners for their support” claims Norbert Varga, General Director of Alconor Company.

The importance of diversification

At the beginning of its activity Alconor Company bottled only carbonated soft drinks in PET bottles, while today, thanks to the use of modern technologies, continues to surprise its customers by launching new products or packing the existing ones in increasingly innovative and original packaging solutions.

At the plants in Carei and Bucharest, the Romanian company has several production lines in which PET containers of different sizes are bottled: from small formats of 0.33 L and 0.5 L to standard formats of 1.5 L, 2 L and 3 L, up to high-capacity containers of 5 L and 6 L.

20 years of transformation and investments

Since 1999 Alconor has acquired an undisputed position of leadership in the field of beverage production, a sector that requires high standards, as well as precision in absolute and constant control over product quality and cutting-edge, flexible and efficient machines to quickly switch from one production to another.

Furthermore, in order to reach the objective of environmental sustainability, the company focuses on investments in plants and machines capable of ensuring the respect for the environment and energy saving, as demonstrated by the recent installation of an SMI stretch film packer from the SFP 30 ERGON range.

An aspect of great importance for Alconor Company is the collaboration with SMI, that, even thanks to the presence of SMI East Europe branch on the Romanian territory, has been able to follow the Romanian company in its rapid development.

“To achieve high levels of production quality, within the Carei and Bucharest plants, we use systems supplied by leading companies in the sector, such as rotary stretch-blow moulders for PET bottles and the fully automatic bottling and packaging lines supplied by SMI, who fully satisfy our requests”, says Norbert Varga, CEO of Alconor Company.
