Construction of the KeyKeg Slimline production line outside of Chicago is now underway. Bert Hanssen, technology director and member of the KeyKeg management team, says, “We’ve already learned a great deal from the Baseline factory in Schwerin, which has been highly productive for years now, and also from our pilot production line for the new 20- and 30-litre Slimlines in Den Helder. We have ordered the main machines and robots, chosen the site and are now preparing the infrastructure for the arrival of the first modules. This US line will cut delivery times and transport costs, making KeyKegs even more attractive for the American and Canadian markets. The fact that we opened a sales office in Chicago earlier this year and we have now chosen the USA for our second Slimline production facility really shows how seriously we take the North American market.” The facility in Northlake, IL is slated to begin producing KeyKeg Slimlines in the second quarter of 2015.
