It’s not easy to catch up to Alan Miller, Founder and CEO of Blue Marble. If he isn’t running 200 miles per hour at the helm at Blue Marble, you probably might catch a glimpse of him doing exactly that on racetrack somewhere in the world.

Success is simple to him. It’s about setting a goal and achieving it. He states, “there are so many goals I set when I start a company. The first is the exit strategy. I know is sounds crazy, but I treat it like every race I start. Am I looking to win, set the fastest lap, or just finish in the top 3. Is this going to be an IPO, acquisition, of lifestyle business? Without this goal and destination setting, I could never achieve or arrive at my goal. Success is never about money. It is a loss leader and, in the end, not very satisfying.”

INDIANAPOLIS, April 30, 2021 (Newswire.com) – Blue Marble Productions, Inc based out of Indianapolis, IN is expanding again. Blue Marble is meeting the ever growing capacity needs for canning both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages for some of the biggest companies in the world. Blue Marble has made significant investments and are paving new ground for accelerated growth. As the nation’s premier co-packer, Blue Marble is growing from 181,000 square feet to 425,000 square feet with multiple new canning lines, in-house sleeving and variety packaging systems. Blue Marble Productions is forging ahead to fill a much-needed gap in the beverage industry.

Blue Marble Productions, Inc., (a wholly owned subsidiary of Blue Marble Cocktails, Inc.), is currently co-packing and private labeling alcoholic and non-alcoholic based products, including ready-to-drink cocktails, sparkling fruit juices, kombuchas, vitamin wellness drinks, canned water and of course vodka, gin, tequila, whiskey and rum based hard seltzers. Founder and CEO, Alan Miller, made the move late 2019 to begin investing in a new team and facility to scale their current co-packing capabilities and are scaling again. Already developing formulas and canning for many of today’s industry leaders, Blue Marble Productions takes great pride in its ability to manage production runs for market trials to multi-million case volumes for today’s largest customers.

“We started with a clean slate and would not accept status quo on how facilities were designed or operated. We were a start-up operating like a Fortune 500 company, running SAP, hiring in-house PhDs to lead our formulary development, implementing GMP, and obtaining certifications like SQF, Kosher, Organic, etc… As an industry leader, expanding our footprint gives us the opportunity to service even more clients. We have already increased our services and capabilities to include in-line sleeving, in-house microbiology and analytical testing, bulk liquid and ingredient storage, warehousing and full 3PL services. I couldn’t be more pleased with the progress we have made and the clientele we service. The entire team at Blue Marble is comprised of some of the most talented individuals I have ever had the pleasure to work with,” said Miller.

In Q4 of 2021, Blue Marble will launch its next new high speed canning line with plans to expand further in 2022 and beyond.

“We are in an aggressive growth mode with the expertise, facility capabilities, and the room to scale at a time when the industry demand has truly outgrown its current canning capacity. We understand that securing line time and capacity is critical for our clients. Our ability to secure aluminum cans, packaging, and ingredients has us well positioned to service clients of all sizes. With this latest expansion we are positioned to exceed 1-Billion can co-packing production annually,” said Brad Clatt, President & COO.

New couples don’t often start new companies shortly after they begin dating, yet that is exactly what Alan Miller and Danyelle Rabine did. Not long after beginning a relationship the new couple founded Blue Marble Cocktails, a ready to drink cocktail brand. And shortly after that Miller founded Blue Marble Productions, Inc. Miller & Rabine have grown Blue Marble Productions and Blue Marble Cocktails into powerhouse companies.

The company’s prosperity should hit even greater heights in the coming years as more individuals around the globe are exposed to the great tasting cocktails available from the brand. But it isn’t just the cocktails that will see the company excel. Its manufacturing facility in Indiana provides even more financial benefits, enabling Blue Marble Cocktails to thrive in the ready to drink cocktail sector. The company produces cocktails, seltzers, vodka, and water. While making RTD cocktails and beverages is Blue Marble’s main focus, the company has branched out into canning products for some of the world’s top beverage businesses thanks to its state-of-the-art facility in Indianapolis, Indiana. The environmentally-focused company is thriving and expects even greater things in the near future.

” I never imagined that the biggest alcohol companies in the world would approach me to make their products. We started off small with 20,000 sq. feet, expanded to 32,000 sq. feet and now are in our new facility which is almost 200,000 sq. feet and we are already in the middle of expanding to 300,000 sq. feet. Companies found out just how good and complicated our drinks are and trust us to make theirs. I could not be prouder of what we have built.
