Crown scoops top award at Asia CanTech 2018
Crown Holdings claimed the Supreme Cup award at this year’s Asia CanTech Awards. The company also claimed the award for innovation, after the judges felt its Interchangeable Super End, for beverage end technology, was a worthy winner.
This product has been produced in three South East Asian countries, with more than 3,000 billion ends produced. This has been said to have reduced aluminium consumption by 850 metric tons and greenhouse gasses by 11,800 metric tons.
With sustainability and the environment important issues within the industry, the fact that this end is said to reduce metal use by over 10 per cent is significant.
Senior Crown representatives, including chief technology officer, Dr. Daniel A. Abramowicz, and Martyn Goodchild, senior vice president manufacturing for Crown Asia Pacific, were there to collect the award.
The other winners on the night were:
Beverage two-piece – Next Can Innovation Co with its Red Bull can
Beverage three-piece – Swan Industries Thailand with its Chabaa Cranberry
Decorative/Speciality – Bangkok Can Manufacturing with its Snowy Can
Food Two-Piece – ORG Technology with its Tea Can
Food Three-Piece – Jenson & Nicholson from Bangladesh for its Nestle Powder Milk Container
General Line – Benjamit Packaging Co, Money Saver, expandable coin bank
Innovation – Crown, Interchangeable Super End, for beverage end technology
Supreme Cup – Crown, Interchangeable Super End, for beverage end technology
The winners were announced at Asia CanTech’s Gala Dinner, where there was also the announcement of the Supplier Awards at CanTech – The Grand Tour in 2019. More can be found on the Grand Tour website.
