G3 Enterprises Gearing Up for Big Year

Focus on Innovation, Quality and Technical Services with New Offerings And Products to Be Introduced Throughout 2016

G3 EnterprisesMODESTO, Calif.  (January 25, 2016) – G3 Enterprises is committing resources to provide totally integrated packaging solutions from grape to glass.  Their focus will be on innovation, quality and technical services to continue to meet the needs of the wine, spirits and beer industries.  Throughout the year, the company will offer expanded services and introduce new products to its customers.

“We exist for our customers to succeed, which is why we’re constantly looking to offer new products and services that give our customers a competitive advantage,” said Tom Cook, President and CEO at G3 Enterprises. He added, “At the end of the day, it’s our people who make the difference, so we’ll be offering our customers opportunities for greater access to our experts – giving them the benefit of our commitment to overcome any challenge and take advantage of every opportunity to grow and succeed.”

G3 Enterprises leverages its wide breadth of expertise to help wineries by focusing on innovation, quality and technical knowledge and services.  G3’s competitive edge goes beyond its uniquely wide range of products and services and focuses on its experienced employees who have accumulated knowledge across diverse businesses.  The company has provided manufacturers with value-added services such as pre-bottling line check-ups and set-ups. Additionally, G3 offers services to evaluate machine conditions and settings, improving bottling line efficiencies for established wineries and new start-ups.  G3’s team specializes in oxygen management in packaging components including cork, caps, glass, boxes, single-serves and PET kegs. G3 also performs process modeling and optimization using advanced analytics, and provides consultation and testing for all its packaging.

To kick off 2016, G3 teamed up with Petainer, a global PET and other plastics packaging business, to drive US expansion. The two partners announced they have launched a new blow molding hub in Modesto, California, which has the flexibility to mold kegs for wine, beer, cider and other beverages. The new operation is up and running to address their customers’ need for a flexible manufacturing approach and reduced logistics costs so they can react quickly to market demands.

The G3/Petainer partnership also offers a wine-industry first turn-key mobile kegging line to meet the growing popularity of wine-on-tap. Instead of the current practice of shipping wine offsite to be bottled, the new mobile keg bottling line comes directly to the customer’s location where the wine will be filled on-site into Petainer’s 20-liter one-way PET kegs. The winery customer will be in control of their keg filling and storage. G3 Enterprises’ team of experts will perform all quality monitoring and control including inspecting for dissolved oxygen every hour, checking for appropriate cap application and fill levels and monitoring filter pressures.

G3 Mobile Bottling prides itself on packaging flexibility, capable of handling bag-in-box from 1.5L through 5L, bottles from 50ml through 1.75L, Petainer kegs and the Zipz single-serve PET package.  G3 will be further expanding that flexibility with Guala Closures Group to become the first mobile bottler in California capable of applying Guala’s WAK closure, a torque-on cap with a unique patented internal thread.  G3 will offer this new service beginning in April, 2016.

The addition makes G3’s bottling operation the most versatile offering of packaging (GLASS, BOX, PET, KEG, and SINGLE SERVES) and closures in the industry.  “Agility and customer focus are part of our core values. We will continue to develop partnerships and provide creative solutions to the industry we serve,” concluded Cook.

At the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium in Sacramento, January 27 – 28th, G3 Enterprises will showcase a variety of products and services including its GSEAL OTR Controlling Liner Technology, G INK Decorative Technology, petainerKeg™ and Alternative Packaging.  Additionally, G3 Enterprises will also have technical sessions at their booth #411 where customers can meet the experts.
