How We Got Started in the Craft Beverage Bottling and Canning Industry
Do what you love
DK Advanced Technologies began when a local innovator and his team paired their love of beer with their 25+ years of precision manufacturing experience. They came together to solve a problem for friends at a local brewery. This led to designing and building semi-automatic bottle filling and capping machinery like the MicroBottler.
Solve a problem
Putting their engineering and design skills to work, Dan Komarony and his team saw the challenge a growing local brewery was having. The New York farm brewery was ready to bottle and distribute their beers and take their business to the next level. Unfortunately, they found only bottling lines that were above their budget. They lacked the ability to change bottles easily and took up too much space. So, the DK team did what any team of innovators would do when faced with a problem. They began to develop a solution.
Simple sketches evolved through R&D into various working models that were tested at the local brewery. The result was the MicroBottler ®. A semi-automatic bottle filling and capping machine, the MicroBottler ® enables craft beverage producers to bottle affordably and efficiently. Designed with the budgets and size constraints of small operations in mind, it is also convenient for large manufacturers to bottle a custom run. DK Advanced Technologies now develops various products to facilitate efficient bottling of beer and beyond.
Innovation is a daily practice with our team. We are passionate about visiting our customers’ businesses, being there when they bottle so we can create new solutions. Updates and new products are always in the works and bottling & canning lines can be fully customized for your needs.
