Manufacturer of PET preforms and containers

Founded in 1955 and based in Valencia, Caiba is dedicated to the production and commercialization of PET preforms and containers in Spain.

In addition to the production at its own manufacturing plants, Caiba has an in-house business model which consists of blowing the preforms and producing the containers at clients’ facilities. This model allows to reduce Co2 emissions as containers do not need to be transported to the client.

Caiba has three manufacturing plants located across Spain (Valencia, Jaén and Toledo) and 28 in-house lines that ensure proximity to clients. The Company targets different end markets including olive oil, household, water and juice markets.
