NPB and Canline expand local US operations
NPB and Canline have announced that they will expand their presence in the US.
This strategic decision emphasises the significant role that the US has in the global metal packaging industry and companies in the industry can strengthen their production needs through NPB/Canline’s localised system capabilities and service levels.
The US-based operations will enable it to operate more closely to key customers and their demanding market needs as the market growth for the manufacturing of cans and ends soars high. This will continue for the next years to come to meet consumer demands and support the move towards a more sustainable trend in packaging in reference to plastic or glass packaging materials.
Johan Orrenius, managing director of NPB, said: “We continuously strive to further strengthen our long-lasting relationships with our key customers. Therefore, the level of delivery capabilities and localised services must be very high. We believe further localisation in the US will accelerate achieving these goals.”
Wouter de Roos, managing director of Canline, said: “To act as true partners for our key customers, we do not only have to deliver market leading technology, but also market leading services.”
The US based operations will include key competences for can- and end manufacturing, plus end-of-line automation. All other vital factors of service provided will be locally present, including project management, site supervision, field service support, performance monitoring, process optimization and spare parts.
NPB and Canline are partners and sister companies within the Business Unit Industrial Solutions of XANO AB. The companies have more than 50 years’ experience.
