Furthermore, Slades has its own blow-moulding bottle plant so it can provide customers with the best possible price and needs.
Slades – Custom Drinking Water Manufacturing
Slades have been creating the perfect combination of delicious drinks and effective beverage packaging for more than 150 years, and we know that we have the best options available for any beverage because we have researched and perfected our bottling plant.
As part of our drinking water manufacturing process, we have a bottling and packaging centre that can create custom designs for you – so you can take advantage of our knowledge and research to create your own packaging.

Of course, this list is not exhaustive, so if there is something that you create that you need to have bottled in our blow-moulding bottle plant, just get in contact.
The State-of-the-Art Manufacturing Plant
There is a good reason that Slades are recognised for our drinking water manufacturing. We have a leading, state of the art plant that uses blow-moulding to create bottles of different sizes and shapes.
We use Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) in our plastic bottles. This is the best choice from a manufacturing point of view because it is straightforward to mould using heat, and is lightweight, safe, and fully watertight. From an environmental point of view, PET is a great choice for single use beverages because it is fully recyclable at end of life. With a worldwide focus on sustainability, circular economy, and recycling, choosing materials that are ecologically sound is a must for any business.
Blow moulding works by heating a PET preform, placing it into a mould, and then high-pressure food grade compressed air is injected into the mould. Once the plastic has cooled, the bottle is removed. This method of bottle making allows you to create unique bottle shapes, creating the ultimate brand identity. Alongside this, our design team are on hand to provide branding advice, help with materials, and any other aspect of drinks branding.
As a custom drinks’ manufacturer, our state-of-the-art plant allows our customers to create something that is uniquely theirs – contact us today to see how we can do the same for you.
