BT-Watzke - a business with tradition

The originating company was founded in 1892 and with a great deal of effort from its employees, the company managed to become Europe's premium supplier. There is no other factory worldwide producing a full range of capsules and wine screw caps at a single site. Capsule production combined with the machine shop producing and maintaining the equipment for production makes our factory truly one of a kind.

This unique set-up allows us to supply customers with products ranging from the simplest heat shrink capsule up to complex and high end Magnum bottle Tin Capsules. Other capsules in our product lines include capsules made of Polylaminate films, Aluminium Caps, as well as Champagne capsules. In production for the last decade, the vinotwist, (a 30x60mm BVS closure) is offered with all possible decorations including offset and silk-screen printing, embossing and hot foil decoration, and our minimum order is only one box of 1,200 pieces!

More than a century experiance and the in-house machine shop is used to train our young technicians for 4 years, giving them world class hands on experience making them experts at capsule production. This ensures that our products stay top of the line and keeps our customers completely satisfied!
