Petainer joins hands with Blue Waters in Trinidad

Caribbean’s bottled water brand Blue Waters Products and Petainer have developed a water cooler manufacturing facility in Trinidad.

Blue Waters owns one of the largest modern water plant in Caribbean and supplies bottled water across the region.

A SIDE machine has been installed at the facility to blow Petainer Cooler preforms. The preforms will then be filled in the facilities at Trinidad and St Lucia.

The two-stage manufacturing process has been taken in-house by Blue Waters, in order to maximise cost savings and supply chain benefits.

Petainer says that its Cooler product is a 100% recyclable and reusable water cooler and claims that the bottle can outperform other bottles in terms of drop tests. It also claims that unlike other bottles, Petainer’s bottles are bisphenol A (BPA-free).

Blue Waters Products, owner and CEO Dominic Hadeed said: “We have worked closely with Petainer and SIDE to develop an efficient manufacturing operation which can produce a high-quality water cooler, offering our customers a range of features which are superior to those of existing coolers, making it more visually appealing, easier to handle and, importantly, BPA-free.”

Petainer group business development director Chris McEwan said: “The collaboration with Blue Waters is an exciting development for Petaner and opens up a new market for our product. 

“We have used our technical expertise and new product development support to support Blue Waters, and by doing so have brought the market-leading PetainerCooler to the Caribbean market.

“Further, this collaboration has created a platform for brand owners in Caribbean and southern US market to access our product, using Blue Waters as our operational base.”
