The oldest brewery in the United States is the Yuengling brewery, opened in 1829 in Pottsville, Pennsylvania.
Many machines that are used to move bottles, cans, boxes and other products have plastic wear strips attached to their guardrails. The wear strips allow the products to glide better than they would against a metal railing. Bottling facilities, such as breweries and carbonated beverage manufacturing plants, find particular utility in plastic wear strips as they can reduce breakage of glass bottles compared to metal wear strips or railings. This enables faster line speeds, and enables increased Mean Time Between Repair (MTBR).
