An Interview with Dan Gabriel, President and CEO of Aloha Water Company, Inc. of Aiea, Hawaii Part 2


3. How did you find out about Norland International and how did you decide to go with Norland’s Oxo-Biodegradable products and bottling equipment?


A: I have known about Norland for many years, just by doing my research for a good company that manufactures quality equipment at an affordable price for small privately owned companies like mine. I have purchased quite a few pieces of equipment from Norland, and I am currently working on 2 more bottling plants that will include Norland equipment.

4. You are using Norland’s Oxo-Biodegradable caps and a BW150 Bottle Washer and Filler in your water bottling operations. What has your customers’ responses been to hear you are going green?


A: Being a distributor of Norland's Oxo-Biodegradable caps was a “no brainer” for me. I am my own best customer, and we are selling these biodegradable caps to most of my competitors (at least to the smart ones) to create a more Earth-friendly environment here in Hawaii. It's been a real hit here. People here in Hawaii care about our environment because we live in such an Eco-sensitive place.
