Bottling capabilities to support product commercialization & meet capacity demands

Custom Contract Bottling Capabilities

CPS provides custom contract liquid bottle filling for products including pharmaceutical, food and beverage, nutraceutical, personal care, home care, industrial chemical, cosmetics, and more.

We can take your liquid formulations from bulk formats to shelf-ready, or add custom bottle filling services as a next step after material processing, including wet milling, blending, dispersing, emulsifying, and more.

We can fill bottles, jars, tubs, and tubes in sizes and container styles ranging from 5.5 mL lip balm packaging to 20-ounce bottles, with screw-top caps and lids that include specialty dropper bottles. Ask us about specialty sizes or formats — just schedule a consultation to learn more.

Our specialty liquid handling capabilities include heating and cooling, as well as operating within an NFPA Class 1 environment. With a cGMP-validated Clean In Place (CIP) process, we protect your products against cross contamination while quickly and efficiently handling your liquid bottling projects, and we’re ready to handle project volumes of 5,000 units and more!

Product Materials & Consistencies for Bottling

Our automated bottling equipment can fill, seal, and cap up to approximately 40 units per minute, depending on unit volume, product viscosity, and other variables. CPS is capable of processing, handling, and bottling liquids in a range of product consistencies including:

  • Liquids and liquid suspensions - Aqueous, Oils, and Alcohols – Equipment capable of operating in NFPA Class 1 environment.
  • Lotions
  • Creams
  • Emulsions
  • Salves
  • Balms
  • Waxes

We can receive your fully formulated product in bulk formats, fill cylindrical end-user sized bottles and jars, and package your fully commercialized, ready-to-ship product. Or, we can add bottling services to streamline your formulation and wet milling and/or blending processes to deliver a completely finished product in final, end-user packaging.

Our bottling equipment is capable of holding sensitive formulations at specific temperatures for handling, whether heating or cooling is needed to achieve product flow and/or protect product from elevated temperatures.

Liquid Container Types and Sizes

Choose from a range of cylindrical container types and sizes available to suit a variety of product consistencies, viscosity ranges, volumes, and applications:

  • Bottles
  • Jars 
  • Tubs
  • Cylindrical tubes
  • Glass and plastic 

Our automated equipment can fill cylindrical bottles, jars, tubs, and tubes in sizes and container styles ranging from 5.5 mL lip balm packaging to 20-ounce bottles, and any size in between, achieving filing precision that can average a filling tolerance as low as 0.1 gram across a project lot.

We can handle bottles, jars, tubs, and tubes that include a range of screw-top lids, including dropper bottles. Induction or pressure-sensitive seals are also available. Need specialty sizes or formats? Schedule a consultation to learn more.

Full-Service Formulation, Blending, & Bottling

We’re much more than a contract bottling partner. Our toll processing experts, material scientists, engineers, and specialty equipment operators can help you with every step of your project from R&D and processing raw materials to realizing your bottled, packaged final product. 

We can design and execute process trials in jet milling, wet milling, blending, emulsifying, and more to help you move quickly through your product formulation process — and then scale up to full production. We’ve helped industrial hemp producers develop, formulate, process, and package high-quality, validated extracts for sale under their own brand.

We can even help you salvage off-specification products or packaging errors to reduce waste by remediating, reprocessing, and refilling.

Throughout every process step, we can provide validated testing and analysis for product sampling, quality assurance, specialty certification, product identification, product release criteria, and more.

By working with a single partner for processing, analysis, bottling, packaging, and even logistics, you can simplify scheduling, streamline production, and effectively reduce waste streams, freight and fuel, and time. You can reduce your overall product footprint and improve process sustainability, while reducing administrative burdens on your own staff — all while controlling project costs.
