OneCircle, one of the world’s leading suppliers of PET kegs, has expanded its presence in the United States with the appointment of Saxco, an award-winning North American distributor of packaging solutions for the wine, spirits, beer and food markets, to its official reseller KeyKeg and UniKeg. Today’s announcement is a key part of OneCircle’s expansion plans in the United States and reinforces OneCircle’s position as a leader in the sustainable packaging market.
Saxco has been chosen as official reseller because the company meets OneCircle’s strict criteria in the areas of sustainability, innovation, growth, efficiency and quality.
Headquartered in Northern California, in the heart of wine country, Saxco enjoys a solid reputation with winemakers and brewers throughout the United States. Hundreds of manufacturers are already using the KeyKeg. The team of packaging experts support clients at every stage of their business cycle, ensuring their brand stands out in a busy retail environment, driving sales and managing supply chain logistics costs.
In addition to its ecological character and considerable economic benefits, the unique laminated inner bag in the high-tech PET packaging protects the taste and extends the shelf life of drinks such as wine and beer. For the hospitality industry looking for cleaner and more flexible packaging solutions in VIDOC-19 there is the possibility to offer wine on tap. It is becoming increasingly popular as it helps restaurants and bars to reduce waste, protect the environment, manage stock more efficiently and offer customers a greater choice of fresh wines by the glass.
Sean Gallagher, Senior Vice President/General Manager of Saxco’s Western Division : We are pleased to add the KeyKeg to our packaging solutions. Not only is it the most sustainable drum on the market, but we already have many customers using drums, both nationally and internationally. They are also well suited to the COVID 19 era because they are clean, safe and more flexible than other forms of packaging, offering significant growth opportunities.
Mark Kibby, Senior Director of U.S. Sales, comments : The US is an exciting market for KeyKeg and UniKeg, and we are pleased that Saxco has joined our reseller community and can bring their extensive knowledge and experience to the table. This is an important step in our U.S. growth strategy that will help us tap into a huge potential market for our barrels.
The KeyKeg and UniKeg are both 100% recyclable and 30% of the KeyKeg and UniKeg are made from recycled materials. The drums offer significant sustainability benefits, including the reduction of CO2 emissions and water consumption, as well as the elimination of harsh chemicals for cleaning.
