Bottling lines: An alliance
of French manufacturers

The Made in France Alliance is a trade association made up of four French manufacturers in the bottling industry whose shared objective is to offer complete bottling and packaging lines for capacities of up to 25,000 bottles/hour.

A shared business vision and the same customer philosophy have made it possible to build entirely compatible machines with a choice of equipment, manufacturing methods, run rates and an ability to provide a very personal service to respond to the demands of the wine industry in France and abroad.

ALBAGNAC, a long-standing partner

This historic partnership resulted from the relationship established between the founders of COSTRAL (Willi Kuhlmann) and ALBAGNAC (Alain Albagnac) back in the '80s. The Alliance was set up in 2013 under the leadership of the second generation of these two family-run businesses.

In 1987, ALBAGNAC, located in Sauzet (46), was discovered by the wine industry leaders for its major innovation at the time: a mechanical labelling machine capable of eliminating the arduous and repetitive task of manually sticking labels on bottles.

Today, used in vineyards worldwide and renowned throughout the industry, our company offers a wide selection of highly-reliable, robust machinery for capping, crimping, labelling and branding.

Easily integrated into complex manufacturing chains, production rates can reach up to 6,000 bottles/hour.
The most creative bottle shapes can be handled: cylindrical, oval, conical, square and more
