Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET)

Since 1992, Pacific Allied Products has supplied only the highest quality PET containers to the Hawaii beverage industry. Today, we are the only vertically integrated facility to manufacture preforms, blow containers and co-pack bottled water – all under one roof.

BOTTLING HAWAII WATER FOR MAJOR BRANDS

Pacific Allied Products began manufacturing Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) products for the local bottling industry in 1992. After installing a complete bottling line in 2010, Pacific Allied Products became 100% vertically integrated in PET processing; a first not only for Hawaii but also the country. As a result, Pacific Allied Products has the capability to manufacture plastic preforms for soda, juice, milk and water bottles; mold the preforms into containers of various shapes and sizes; rinse, fill and cap the bottles; and then label, shrink wrap and palletize the final product all under one roof.

Through vertical integration, Pacific Allied Products offers the following services:

Injection Molding is the first step of a two-step process in manufacturing plastic containers used for soda, juice, milk and water. Pacific Allied Products has been using the Injection Molding process to produce plastic preforms since 2003. In this process, plastic pellets are measured, melted and molded into various preform sizes. All components of the state-of-the-art system, which includes a hot runner, mold, machine, robot and post-mold cooling tool, are specifically designed to work together as a fully-integrated work cell to achieve the highest level of productivity and quality.

Preforms are heated, stretched and inflated to the shape of the desired plastic container or bottle. Custom molds are used for each shape container using the latest in blow mold technology. The equipment is versatile and has the ability to produce a wide range of containers, from 500ml to 12 liters.

Pacific Allied Products has received approval from the State of Hawaii to bottle three different kinds of water: Hawaiian Purified Water, Hawaiian Artesian Water and Hawaiian Sea Water. The integrated machines move the bottles through a station where they are rinsed, filled and capped. The line continues on to where they are labeled, shrink wrapped and palletized, with the finished products shipped to customers. The co-packaging line has the ability to produce 13,000 bottles per hour.
