The Krones Beverage industry Group, based in Germany, opened a Branch in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia with Quality, state of the art designer and technological advanced machineries.

The company is known to offer an array of technical solutions for liquid materials such as soft drinks, beer and dairy products.
A number of new production lines allocated to various customers in the beverage market, demonstrates the demand by the customers to have quality, reliable equipment to produce products for the ever-growing markets.
Arie De Keijzer, Operations Manager of Krones Ethiopia told The Reporter; “Our mission as Krones, is to support the customer and enable him to produce the best possible products at the lowest possible cost, to the benefit of the end consumer, our people in the street, the people of Ethiopia. “We see an overwhelming potential in Ethiopia and a great mutual market for us and the companies we will be involved with.”
Founded in 1951, the self-described “holistic systems engineering” company has offices in South Africa, Angola and Nigeria.
The South African subsidiary also has training facilities where most of the local staff members are set to receive their training and have them meet the universal standard of the company.
In addition to the building of state-of-the-art equipment, the company is to offer its local clients/customers with specialized technical knowledge and world-wide support at all hours from its base in Neutraubling, Germany — the headquarter of the publicly traded company.
