Q. I’m thinking about starting up a business to produce bottle water.  What equipment do I need to get started?

A.  That depends primarily on what your business will focus on- large bottle (3-5 gallon) (11-19 liter) or small bottle (up to 1 gallon) (3.7 liter), or whether you intend to reach both markets. You’ll need equipment specific to the size of bottle you plan to produce.  Also important is what you project the size of your start-up business volume will be.  You want to choose equipment that matches your requirements into the foreseeable future.  Don’t over invest, but don’t under invest, either.  Take advantage of Norland International’s experience in all phases of the bottled water industry to get started on the right foot.
