At the forefront of innovation, VOA-Verrerie d’Albi has helped its clients to carry out a unique glass bottle creation for more than 120 years. Searching for ways to differentiate is a key element for our clients.
From a model in the catalog or from a unique concept, VOA helps you to turn your project into a reality: innovative shapes, variable tints, internal or external engravings, bottom push-ups, unique decor.
A unique glass bottle creation
VOA meets clients’ expectations with its know-how and its innovative glass packaging solutions: from the launch of a new product to brand repositioning or re-styling, VOA assists you throughout the project.
A choice of bottle shapes
From a model in the widest-ranging catalog on the market or from a shape concept, VOA’s unique expertise brings you the best solution to carry out your project to every detail and improve the quality of the product, whether it be conical, cylindrical or any other shape.
Capacity and finish
VOA offers a wide choice of capacities from 2 cl to 15 l, and a range of finishes adapted to your needs: screw-on finish, cork finish, crown finish, cetie finish or vinolok.
Choice of tints
From classic tint to light coloration, a wide range of tints is available.
Classic tints: Extra-flint, flint, cannelle, dead leaf, tradiver, champagne, ebony, dark amber, yellow.
Light colors: Glacier blue, royal blue, fluorescent blue, extra-black and other tints available on request.
This kind of creation is exclusive to our group: we are the only supplier to offer it on the market.
Virtually invisible when the bottle is full, the engraving appears as it is emptied. Externally, the bottle remains completely smooth.
External engraving gives your bottle a singular design highlighting brand image. This kind of engraving can be placed on the shoulder or on the body of the bottle.
An additional asset for your bottle thanks to bottom push-ups.
From the most traditional method (screen printing, acid etching, coating) to the most promotional (metallization, accessory add-ons, image transfer, flocking, transfer by immersion), let your imagination run wild. Discover the different technical solutions we offer on the decorated bottles page.
