Rexam joins UK mobile canning facility project
Rexam has teamed up with WeCan Solutions to produce aluminium cans for the first ever mobile canning facility in the UK, one of only a handful in Europe.
The service offers onsite canning solutions for craft brewers and smaller beverage brands with a minimum filling run of 5,000 cans per day.
Rexam is providing 330ml (33cl) size cans in a range of formats, including unprinted, one colour printed and bespoke designs, on demand. WeCan Solutions is offering the application of pressure sensitive labels (PSL) for onsite filling.
This partnership reflects both companies dedication to helping craft brewers recognise the benefits of cans as an alternative packaging format, whilst reducing investment costs on filling lines and transportation.
Andy Hughes and Marin Forder, managing directors at WeCan Solutions, said: “Rexam is globally recognised for producing innovative can formats and designs so we were thrilled when they agreed to come on board. We share both their sustainability and innovation values and together we are helping smaller beverage brands put their product into cans.”
Rogier Keukens, UK sales manager for Rexam, adds: “WeCan Solutions’ focus on craft beer is exciting for Rexam and we have also identified this as a growing segment throughout the UK and Europe, a trend which we expect to continue for years to come.
“Rexam admires WeCan Solutions’ innovative offering for craft brewers and we look forward to continuing our collaboration. Rexam aims to grow the market through innovative, bespoke products and services for WeCan Solutions, their customers and other craft brewers who are looking to can their beers.”
