Hello and welcome
I’ve just finished my first issue as the new editor of CanTech International and I think it’s a great time to get into the can business.
I’m hoping to meet as many of our readers and advertisers as possible in the coming weeks and months and with so many shows coming up it’s another reason why I think this a great time to start working here.
The current issue (April) of CanTech International has previews of EuroCanTech 2013 and Cannex and the next issue (May) will feature an IMDA preview, so if you’re any of these events hopefully we’ll get to talk even if it’s only to say hello.
I’ve also been very impressed to have found out about all the environmental initiatives taking place such as the Hindustan Tin Works led Canvironment Week, which seems to have become a truly global event now, hopefully 2014 will be even bigger.
Will Geller, general manager North America at Quality by Vision, has also written about can seaming inspection and his article is available in April’s issue of the magazine with some high profile failures in the media at the moment this seems a good time to look at the subject.
Other than that I really mean it when I say I welcome comments from our readers and advertisers, both good and bad, so let me know what you think of the website and magazine either in person or by email on [email protected]
