Our story, which began over 40 years ago, has its beginnings in the SIDE electronics division, which was related to the plastic container industry from the beginning.
Our broad knowledge of the industry and the market allowed us to create the custom-made range of plastic container blowers that we offer to our clients today, based on quality and maximum efficiency in the manufacture of packaging using PET preforms. With over 40 years of experience in the industry, we can trust our detailed knowledge of the latest technological innovations, uses and applications of PET when developing projects in the future.
At SIDE, our aim is to provide swift and personalised responses for each individual client, based on the characteristics of their products, thereby guaranteeing the best use and commercialisation of PET packaging.
Everything that we develop is designed to offer the solution that is most suitable and adequate for your needs, based on the best possible value for money, the maximum energy efficiency in our equipment, and a personalised service for PET blowers, from the start of the project up to equipment installation.
We want to be part of your team. Our flexibility and ability to adapt to your needs, as well as our unique customer service and total commitment to each project and requirement, make SIDE’s PET blowers service a strong partner in your plastic container production. We are defined by our commitment, professionalism and personalised service.
We always offer a high-quality solution with great service. With this in mind, every one of our PET container blowers is specially designed, and its components are selected carefully, subject to strict checks, in order to guarantee the best results in plastic container manufacture.
With productivity always in mind, we incorporate the latest technological advances in packaging manufacture to guarantee maximum performance. This philosophy allows us not only to provide solutions to current PET blower requirements, but also to anticipate what those requirements will be in the future.
What we do
At SIDE, we offer solutions to companies that need to achieve maximum profitability in the manufacture of PET containers, always based on a sound knowledge of the industry, of raw materials and of the ever-changing needs in terms of the use and application of plastic containers.
