Donor Recognition

XpressFill Systems is a San Luis Obispo based company that designs and manufactures high quality taple-top bottle fillers used by small-to-medium artisan craft producers around the world.  XpressFill Systems offers 7 models of its compact and easy-to-use filler for bottling such products as wine, beer, distilled spirits, juices, olive oil and industrial & medical liquids.

XpressFill Systems was acquired in 2007 by Cal Poly graduate, Randy Kingsbury, BSME 1981. XpressFill has continually grown by maintaining a focus on providing outstanding customer service and quality products.  Randy strongly believes in the "Learn By Doing" philosophy of Cal Poly and donated this bottle filling machine to the viticulture program as a way to help with the hands-on experience of the students producing wine.

Alumni, friends and industry partners are key to the success of Learn by Doing. Our sincere thanks go out to those who have chosen to leave their mark on this program and the students.
