Crown Valley Makes Innovations in Manufacturing

Located in Southeast Missouri, Crown Valley Copack has become one of the leading beverage manufacturers in the Midwest. In April of 2003, Crown Valley started its first venture in the winery business. Over the next 5 years, it opened multiple facilities with the ability to brew, distill and produce sparkling wines. From the conception of the company, Crown Valley has helped local and statewide wineries and breweries with contract manufacturing demands. In 2017, Bryan Siddle, Director of Crown Valley, started to build a Copack team and Quality Assurance program. This enabled Crown Valley to expand its footprint to that of a leader for global companies as their third-party innovation manufacturer.

With multiple manufacturing sites, Crown Valley offers a wide array of services and options for production and packaging of malt-based beverages, ready to drink cocktails, seltzers, spirits, and wine.  In 2020, the addition of a new facility housing their high-speed canning line commenced production. The Airpark facility offers 110,000+ gal. temperature-controlled tank capacity, 2- 5000 liter still, tunnel pasteurizer, automated carton builder and tray pack former, as well as automated palletizer and shrink wrapper. Crown Valley offers canning, bottling, and sleeving capabilities for both glass and aluminum.  Last fall, they introduced a DMM Robotic Variety Pack System. This system can accommodate both 12oz slim and standard cans, and produce 8 pack, 10 pack, and 12 pack finished goods of up to 5000 cases per day.

Encompassing over 500,000 square feet of warehouse space, Crown Valley also offers finished goods storage options and third-party order fulfillment. While shortages have plagued the industry in recent years, they set out to assist those customers who could benefit by the connections their long-standing relationships could bring. In 2021, procurement was added to the list of conveniences they now offer their clients.

Crown Valley strives to be on the cutting edge of innovation and recently started a specialized distilling program to include agave wine and spirits for bulk sale. While continuing to expand in 2022, they are always looking for ways to help both new and existing clients bring their products to life. By being centrally located in the United States, they are positioned to help anyone wishing to expand their footprint nationally.
