Agami designs production lines for plastic bottles
Stylianos Eleftheriou, an Ensaia engineer (Ecole nationale supérieure d’agronomie et des industries alimentaires, National agronomy and food industries college), set up Agami in May 2009, a limited company with equity of 500,000 euros. The company designs production lines for small plastic bottles (100 to 350 ml) for use by the food-processing industry. The linStylianos Eleftheriou, fondateur de la société Agami, possède 15 ans d’expérience technique et commerciale dans les procédés et l’emballage alimentaires.es are based on innovative tubular thermoforming technology using a reel of plastic sheeting as its raw material. The sheet is extruded and flattened at high speed.
For a cost and weight far lower than conventional methods, the technology can produce tall, round bottles at the same rate as they are filled, thereby doing away with transport upstream and the chemical decontamination, cooling or stabilisation stages required between conventional bottle forming and filling. Another advantage is the simplicity with which multilayer bottles can be made, including the specific barriers to oxygen, water vapour or light that are essential for satisfactory storage of liquids for human consumption.
Agami is targeting the producers of fresh dairy products, in particular yoghurt drinks, as well as fruit juice manufacturers, with the longer-term aim of competing with cardboard cartons. When building production lines, the company draws on the expertise of its founder and the way in which his skills complement the work of the mechanical engineering company Diatec (Vitré).
Agami’s founder, who works from Cesson-Sévigné near Rennes, was assisted by Rennes Atalante with the drafting of his business plan and with certain legal and financial aspects of his business.
